Bio

"Don't be afraid to fail, be afraid not to try"

Born and grow up in Grindelwald/Switzerland in front of the famous Eiger North Face. Enjoying my childhood in this incredible mountain area, I loved outdoor sports like mountaineering, cycling, running since always. Competing in cross country skiing till I was 18 years old, I did my first skimo race in 2007 and get qualified for the European Championships the same year. Since then I found my passion… 2014 was the first international achievement with the podium at the Patrouille des Glaciers together with my brother. It was the beginning of some incredible moments in my career as a skimoracer: 2 times 2nd Trofeo Mezzalama, 2 Podiums Patrouille des Glaciers, 5 world cup wins till 2020. And hopefully some more highlights will come.
