Why Verbier is my home:

Verbier is the most famous resort in Switzerland for freeriding. The legend of Bec des Rosses attracted me every winter for challenging my self with that gnarly mountain.  Since 2012 I’m Verbier 4 Vallee Ambassador and now I moved here for some love reason. It is the best choice which I have ever did. Living 5 min a way from gondola allowed me to be almost every day in mountains breathing pure energy.

Bio

Born and raised in Verbier by my Swedish parents. The mountains, as well as skiing, have played major roles in my life from the beginning. As a kid, I did a lot of alpine racing but quickly realized that was not what skiing was about. I am now 19 years old, and have competed 3 years on the Junior freeride Tour and last season on the Freeride World Qualifier.

Biggest achievement

Qualifying To the Freeride World Tour my first year on the qualifiers. Thanks to two first places and a 3rd.

Bio

I'm very passionate about all things mountain but skis and bikes are my thing. I've lived in Verbier since 2009 and before that I was based in Les 2 Alpes, France. Growing up in the Peak District in Derbyshire, U.K. allowed me to ride great terrain on a bike from a young age. Mountain biking in the alps was always a dream that ended up coming true. I teach skiing in the winter and I guide on the bike in the summer. 

Biggest achievement

Surviving the Mountain of Hell bike race. Racing from the top of a glacier in Les 2 Alpes @ 3600m all the way down to 850m with 700 other people on a mass start. I finished in 148th amongst some of the best riders in the world.

Why Verbier is my home:

Obviously the mountains and the access here are amazing and I’ve been so lucky to meet some of my best friends here too. Having this at your doorstep is incredibly hard to beat and I’ve had a hard time settling elsewhere since I first arrived here in 2012.

Favourite run in the 4 Vallées:

I really like the Mt. Gond but have only skied it a few times. You also can’t beat Lac de Vaux hot laps.
