What´s your favorite meal on race days?
On race days, I have only one meal before the race, and it's breakfast. I need some power, so I like to eat French toast, eggs and bacon and some muesli.

How do you prepare for a race? Do you have a special ritual before the start of a race?
Yes, I have a ritual. I do the inspection of the race. Then I warm up on the slope, doing some Giant Slalom or Super-G. Afterwards, I go to the restaurant or waiting lounge and talk and laugh with my teammates. I think about the race in my mind and warm up my muscles. The closer I get to my start, the more I'm focused.

When was your first time on skis?
My first time on skis was when I was one and half and it was on Head skis!!! My parents are ski instructors, and that's why it was so early.

What´s your favorite ski resort in the world?
It's Val Thorens, my home. Because it's so high, the snow is always very good even at the end of the winter. It's nice to do some freeskiing and to go out for good parties!

How would you describe your perfect day of skiing?
My perfect day is a powder day with my friends. I like to climb and then to be alone on the top for a little while. Then it's nice to ride all the day on Champagne fresh snow!
