In this video you can follow me on my road to the crown at the Freeride World Tour 2017. After 8 seasons of competing and two recent injuries, 2017 was the year everything finally came together. Developing the mental strength skills to compete in a high pressure situation was the crucial factor for me last season. It allowed me to find flow during my runs and, as a by-product, win the championship. I’m currently studying a master’s degree in mental strength coaching at the University of Salzburg, Austria, and I can’t wait to continue honing my mental strength skills during competition this winter and learn as much as I can as a future mental strength coach. As always, I’m continuously honing my technical skiing as well and I love this ongoing process, because there is always something new and fun to learn.
I want to thank my sponsors for the great partnership over many years now: Lech Zürs am Arlberg, Kästle Skis, Bergans of Norway, SCOTT Sports, and the Olympiazentrum Vorarlberg. Being able to focus on skiing for the past decade and grow as an athlete would not have been possible without you! Thank you and here’s to many more years of excellent partnership!
