How you got into skiing ("Life Notes”):
As a daughter of a passionated mountain guide I started skiing in the age of 2. Since that time i´m injected with the spirit of it. I love the variation that skiing has, like racing, coaching, freeriding and freeski mountaineering. Situated in Lech am Arlberg i work as a professional skiinstructor and skiguide. I´m one of a few professional female blasters and work for the avalanche comission in my hometown.
Why do you ski?
In the world where we live, everything goes by so fast. On my ski´s i´m reduced down to Moment. Focussed.
Being in the mountains and it´s grateful nature with all the challenges gives me the freedom to express myself. That´s what i´m addicted of.
It makes me happy and i feel honored to live my dream out there.
No wonder, i turned my dream into profession.
What the Women to Women project means to you:
Every Women I met in this project lives her life on skis in different ways, but in the end we all do it because of the feeling we get on skis. It calms us down and in the same way it makes us laugh. It brings us together in a way we never expected to met each other. Blizzard and Tecnica made it happen that we got the chance to catch up with the best ladies all over the world, who loves the same thing-skiing. Working with women who all brings in the personal experience and with the “brains” of the brands we all created a exclusive collection.To share this unique experiences with a bunch of inspiring women is something very, very special for me.
