If I could change one thing about snowboarding today, that would be:  Stop the spin to win attitude and get back to style!  Winter sports are becoming more and more expensive here in Switzerland – make snowboarding accessible to everybody, not just the wealthy – how about cheaper lift tickets?

What has snowboarding taught me:  It has made me the person I am today – disciplined, responsible and not taking life too serious.  Whatever you do in life, always go for it and never give up!

What are the main goals in my snowboarding career:  Having fun and enjoying snowboarding, whenever I can and as long as I can.  Shredding the back country in awesome places all over the world.

3 things I can’t live without: Friends and family I can always count on, Pizza, Snowboarding.
