My first contact with skis was at the age of four. I`ve always been fascinated by mountains and by endurance sports like running, but it took me more than 26 years to discover my passion for the competitive sports Mountainrunning and Skimountaineering. I first started skitouring at the age of 26 when some friends took me to a skitour in the Alpbachtal. I was totally fixed from the beginning.
Unfortunately I only had two or three good seasons before I fell down a descent over 800 altitude meters of pure ice and snow during a fotoshooting in Iceland in Αpril 2014. I broke several bones in my whole body, cut the main artery of my right leg as well as the nerve, which is responsible to lift my right foot. I had much pain, many surgeries and many negative experiences during the last one and a half years, nevertheless all this made me even stronger.
Now, I regard life as something special, something valuable and I’m so grateful, that I am alive. Every time I stand at the top of a mountain, I get so much energy and I am even more motivated to get back all my physical abilities. I know, that I´ll be able to do skiing and running uphill again one day. This imagination is my motivation to keep on going day by day and to push myself through the rest of the rehab and the upcoming surgeries.

- 2014: Staying on the top of a mountain with ski touring skis 7months after my bad crash
There are so many things…but over all I want to be able to do normal skiing in winter and running uphill in summer again one day.
I want my crash not to be completely in vain. Therefore I wanna tell my story in oral presentations to motivate others to fight for their dreams. For the same reason I´m writing a book about my fight back to sports.
I want to inspire people to listen to their heart and to find and follow their real passion. It´s always worth fighting for your aims.
The fascination of reaching the top of a mountain or finishing a race is ineffable. You have already forgotten the pain that you’ve suffered during the last hours. You just feel deep and pure happiness standing there, knowing that you can reach every goal in life, if you really want it.
The last 18 months I have trained hard at the rehab especially to stabilize and strengthen my core as well as the proprioceptors and muscles in my legs. I love to go hiking and ski touring to get my mind free in the mountains around my hometown Munich.
I hate to train strictly after an exercise regimen. Instead I try to listen to my body. It´s the best indicator for setting breaks or push myself to an edge.
I hate to fail. The worst thing is not to reach my personal goals. So it`s very important to set realistic goals to experience a sense of achievement.
I think it´s my husband and my whole family. They are not only fans of my race results furthermore they are fans of my strong and positive willpower.
Follow always your heart and your passion and don´t forget to be thankful also for the smaller things.
Getting totally fit again. Finish writing my book and start doing lectures.
The Thermal flight offers the feeling of the thermals in the air during the flight and the paraglider is a bit longer.
Your tandem pilot will be looking through the power of the sun, causing updrafts. Besides, many circles are flown and maintained constantly at new sites for even better thermals out. Using these thermals your tandem pilot can extend the flight time artificially.
Please note: By mid-September the thermals are usually strong enough to extend the flight. In other seasons there can be only for a single day.
Often filming and photography are possible during the thermal flights due to the still relatively quiet conditions in the air.
After 15 – 30 minutes, you begin with the landing. Many passengers already dreaming for the next paragliding flight…
