Which actor do you want to be for one day? Puh – no glue. But defintely a guy – I really wouldn't want to miss out on changing gender for one day. And defintely somebody who gets to do crazy stunts in exotic landscapes and who is also an intelligent person. Any idea?
Which Icetools-equipment do you use?
The Snow Roller, Evo Shield Protector and the Tempest Backpack
Favourite Instagramer you follow and why?
To be honest: I'm just fuelling my mountain addiction on instagram and therefore follow all my winter friends. People like @leahartl, who is in the mountains all year round and always writes pretty funny and interesting captions.
Best trip ever: Iceland in spring 2017 – roadtripping for two weeks in a Campervan, hiking gnarly steep coloirs and tackling some great lines via helicopter access accompanied by the best crew ever – watch out for the Volcanic Kingdom Movie coming fall 2017
Favourite Music you listen to:
Ever changing, but ranging from The Clash to Paul Kalkbrenner to Crystal Castles, and I also listen to music from artists like Leftöver Crack, ManuChao or Beirut as they remind me of very good times.
What do you prefer after riding?
Coffee or beer and what I'm supposed to do is stretching.
Not make it too complicated – just enjoy!
"The Evo Shield Protector is light, breathable and provides me with that little extra security I need to charge hard in big lines."
