Want to know more?

What does it mean for you to be a World Cup Rebel? 

It means I can live my dream as a ski racer.

What´s your favorite meal on race days? 

In the past I would always eat Spaghetti Bolognese, but not too much otherwise I get really tired. But honestly I’m still trying out what’s the best meal for me on a race day.

When was your first time on skis?

When I was 2 ½ at home at the Hoch-Ybrig with my parents.

Did you have a skiing role model as a child?

I was always a fan of my brother Kevin, who became a ski racer before me. Of course I also always supported the Swiss team and Didier Cuche was my hero.

How would you describe your perfect day of skiing?

A perfect day for me is training in the morning while the sun rises beautifully over the mountain. Then I can take a short power nap before going powder skiing in the afternoon. In the evening I would have a delicious fondue at a mountain hut where we stay overnight.
