What is freeskiing for you? Freeskiing is my will to live. I don’t know what I would do or who I would be without it.
Is freeskiing evolving and what are the trends you see coming next season? Freeskiing is evolving at rate much faster than ever before, as with most things. It seems like it was just last year we saw the first double cork, and now we are seeing triples and double corks left and right. I expect this next season to bring lots of crazy doubles in the backcountry, doubles both ways and off every jump in slopestyle and halfpipe competiton, and triples in big air!
What is Dalbello for you ? The perfect fit!
Describe a perfect day on the mountain, no limits, just dreaming: Beginning hiking at the crack of dawn for a nice tour with my buddies in the infamous Wasatch mountains. We would bring delicious snacks and tea for the top, and then rip down with no fear because of the non-existent avy danger. Basically a dream day on the mountain for me is deep blower pow with no avy danger whatsoever. Impossible, but we’re dreaming right?
