|What did you get up to in the summer? Any glacier riding?
I was coaching up in Whistler at Camp of Champions so that was really fun. The campers were so pumped and the weather was really good most of the time. Definitely hope to do that again next year.
What have you got planned for the forthcoming season so far?
Open etc and will hopefully get to go to some of the most awesome destinations for filming. Besides that, I want to start an ant farm, get a new yukul?©l?© since my roomates broke it on my head and I really want to learn how to make cheesecake.
Where are you going to be based, when you’re not travelling?
Any goals for this season or new tricks you want to stomp?
How long have you been riding? Did you ski before you got on a snowboard?
you could take your favourite people anywhere to ride for a day, who would you take and where would you go?
It would be somewhere with the longest untouched natural pillow lines with a chairlift to ourselves. I would probably bring all my best friend from home and Whistler, my brothers and my dad, Andr?©, my skier roomates, Anne-Flore(Marxer), Hadar (Laura), BeVy(Vuillemier), Nat(Zurek) and so many more… And there would be animals playing the best melodies, it would be snowing the biggest flakes ever but it would be sunny at the same time and there would be the best food feast at the bottom with a big fire with leprechauns and unicorns everywhere. Waaahhoooooa!
