Having a good time with my family 

 

What means snowboarding to you?

A lot, probably half of my life! 

 

Has your life changed beeing a snowboard pro?

I am no pro yet, but am trying hard to get there…

 

What kind of rider are you?

I really like to compete in contests, but also enjoy myself a lot in fresh powder! 

 

What do you like most about Völkl Snowboards?

The quality is really great.

 

The place to be?

Obviously Davos!

 

Your signature trick?

Stalefish

 

What kind of style is up to date? What trick is done?

Being stylish just makes more fun, and all kinds of grabs a clearly part of that.

 

Which trick do you want to learn next?

BS 540 in pipe.

 

How do you motivate yourself and learn new tricks?

My motivation for snowboarding flows from my heart!

 

You had any dangerous situations on the mountain so far?

I did not like at all a heavy thunderstorm in Zermatt on Theodul glacier.

 

Highlights of last season?

Certainly my 2nd place at the Burton European Open in Laax in the under 15 girls pipe contest, and being able to participate in the semi-finals with the pros.

Winning the World Rookie Series pipe contest in Monte Bondone girls overall and getting the Black Yeti was great.

Also winning the Swiss Championships in SLS and Pipe, and wining the Audi Snowoard Series Tour 2013/14

 

Blue bird & perfect conditions – who should be in your riding crew?

My family and my friends from the team. 

 

The best Snowboard trip ever was...

What stuff is in your backpack when you head up to ride or travel?

Sweets, water, sunglasses and my skate. 

 

What is your favourite contest & why?

Burton European Open in Laax, because there is always a great ambiance.

 

What do you do when you are not riding?

I go school, do trampoline, skating, and like horseriding. I also do karate now for some 6 years.

 

In five years I want...

I want to be in the Sports Gymnasium in Davos and have lots of opportunities to go boarding!

 

LAST WORDS

I am very happy to be part of the Völkl and Zimtstern teams

I would like to thank a lot all my trainers - most of all Chri, who made me start freestyle snowboarding and participate at contests, but who passed away far too early. All my trainers now are great, Sabine, Isa, and the trainers from the Davos team - thank you for all the time you give to us.

And my brothers Sebi and Mathi who come with me to the park, pipe and slopes, and my mum and dad, thank you so much for everything.
