I grew up away from big mountains in Dürbheim, Germany. Being out there in the nature and doing the sports I love always meant the world to me. Thanks to my parents I spent a lot of time in the Alps in my youth, which inspired me to move to Innsbruck (Austria) to start studying there.
With moving to Innsbruck I changed from snowboard to skis and focused on freeriding as much as I was able to whilst completing a master’s degree in advanced materials.
I’m very thankful to now have the opportunity to travel around the world with filmmakers and photographers to explore beautiful and remote ski destinations. Besides that I’m competing in the Freeride World Qualifiers with the aim to qualify for the Freeride World Tour.

To show my kids the same passions and to offer them the possibility to follow their dreams.
With skiing in the backcountry there are a lot of difficulties: It’s extremely depending on the weather and snow conditions, so you can get pretty disappointed on film trips for example.
Your performance depends on your physical, but also on your mental skills – to improve the mental side sometimes can be a slow process and pretty annoying.
Having an intense deep-powder day with my friends makes me sleep like a baby.;)
Also skiing a fun, creative competition line exactly how I imagined it.
I pretty much never ski alone, luckily. ;)
I think to believe in your training and yourself and to do it for the right reason is really important. The best training for me is to ski as much as possible with the best and most fun crew.
Because my season is really long and intense, I usually don’t do two seasons each year. I rather enjoy doing a lot of other sports in summer like surfing or climbing, but also some specific strength and coordination training besides that.
About losing my line and/or misjudging the snow conditions in the landings – it’s a fine line between backslapping and front punching.
I don’t know… maybe my girlfriend, because she’s supporting me in everything I’m doing – even if that means me being weeks away.
Listen to your body and your mind.
Explore some beautiful and remote places, improve my skiing so I can bring some creativity into exposed lines and get more consistent in competitions.
The Basic flight is the trial tandem flight in our program, so to speak the “small door” to the world of paragliding.
Tandem paragliding has something special. In completely calm air without thermals you float down into the valley – a heavenly feeling. The Basic flight with the help of your tandem pilot offers the chance to take over the reins and even drive yourself.
Your tandem flight pilot will be there to answer all your questions about the paragliding flight. During the flight filming and photography would also be ideal by our photo rod because of the calm conditions in the air.
After about 10 – 15 minutes your tandem flight is over, and perhaps you will catch – the flight Virus…

Our much desired Couples flight variation, which can be optionally selected for each type, leads us to this special offer. You get two flights, images, train tickets, food, and a glass of sparkling wine.
With our Couple Flight EXCLUSIVE, we offer a complete package that leaves nothing unfulfilled. We think it’s important for couples to really share the experience of “best moments between heaven and earth”.
The tandem pilots pursue the goal to fly as close as possible and our guests get the opportunity to see each other in the air, watching the flight of their partner and enjoying the experience together.
Immediately after landing, the pilot team is not trying to let the togetherness tear. With a glass of champagne and a dinner (on request with the pilot) on the famous Fliegerbar at the landing site in Kössen, the shared experience continues.
The digital images made during the flight will be presented to you to preserve the memories for a long time.
