Hey,
Luckily I grew up at the heart of the Austrian Alps, at Obertauern, where I started skiing at the age of 2. Soon I started alpine ski racing and I raced for more than ten years, first taking part in nationals, and later on in international competitions. After some injuries I stopped racing and started backcountry skiing. I found that I loved this so much more than racing through red and blue gates.

At the age of 18 I received my first pair of Freeride skis. Since then I have been a passionate freerider and I try to improve my skills during every run in the backcountry. In 2013 I started to compete at the Freeride World Qualifier Tour where I finished third at my first competition and since then I have been competing all over Europe. My career highlights were the win of the Austrian Freeride Series in 2015 and some wins on the FWQ-Tour.

maloja isn’t just a sponsor for me it’s a big family, a family of nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts. The team at the office, the athletes, everybody who wears maloja shares the same passion. I am really proud to be part of the maloja Family and I’m looking forward to a lot of adventures in my maloja clothes and to spread the spirit of maloja all around the world.
Have fun and take care out there!
Ride on,
Jay
