Hello everyone! My name is Konstantinos Lyketsos and I am a professional skier. I was born in Athens, Greece on October 24th 1982. I have studied Business Administration at Deree College in Athens and when I am not skiing I create websites. I have won the Alpine Ski Hellenic Championship 3 times until the age of 18 in both disciplines Giant Slalom/Slalom and I have been competing in many World Cups for teenagers and the Winter Olympic Games under 18 yr in Poprad, Slovakia. At the age of 20 I started freestyle ski which I haven’t stopped since now.

I compete in FIS Halfpipe ski competitions in world cup level and many other European level events when I have the chance. Besides the competitions my passion is to create ski videos with my friends. When I ski, I live in a different world full of creativity and happy thoughts! The best part in skiing is that you can enjoy the sport with your friends. I would recommend skiing to everyone without second thought!!!


What are you looking for to accomplish?

Every year I’m trying to become better on my sport and be as competitive as I can against the other riders. A big accomplishment for me is to be able to land perfect all my tricks in my halfpipe run. In the long run I’m trying to accomplish personal satisfaction and lots of good memories in what I do.

What would be your greatest achievement?

My greatest achievement will be to be able to pass all the ski knowledge I have to the new generations through coaching.

What kind of difficulties does your sport’s performance involve?

For countries like Greece that has no real snowparks and halfpipes to train, the only way to become a freestyle ski competitor is to spend a lot of money in ski trips around Europe and the US for proper training. If we had the facilities in our country I believe that the level of the Greek riders would be the same as the European ones.

What makes you feel satisfied when performing your sport?

The atmosphere around the competition. The speaker saying your name. All competitors know each other and the environment is super friendly. In some comps music is the key factor for better performances. The crowd at the bottom watching you perform. I think it is a great feeling.

Where do you practice your techniques when being alone?

In my head…

What do you do during your training which is key to your success?

During training I have to be focused in what I have to accomplish that day. If I want to learn a new trick I will focus only on that trick instead of just skiing around the park. I will find the right jump of wall in the halfpipe and try my new trick all day. Repetition is key to success.

What are you most nervous about when competing?

Perform well and be satisfied with myself.

Hahahaha…I really don’t know.

What is the best piece of advice you have been ever given?

Train hard…Get Inspired!

What are your future plans?

For the next 4 years I will be training and competing in halfpipe comps mostly and the final goal is the Winter Olympic Games in South Korea 2018. There is also the coaching part of the sport that fascinates me and I have plans to get some certification on that.

What are your tips for those who begin now?

Start slow and wear protection. Being safe is not a stupid thing. Begin freestyle ski lessons with an instructor. You will become better, faster and you will avoid injuries. Have fun and enjoy freeski.
