When Alex was 2 and a half years old, he just had to cross a small field and was at the bottom of “his” mountain. His whole family worked as ski instructor’s so he had quite some help with starting skiing. After racing for a couple of years, he started his mogul skiing career and was quite successful. He skied two year’s for the German national team and then changed to the Austrian national team. All together he skied 6 years on the World Cup tour.
After finishing the professional mogul skiing he was very excited about the upcoming freeskiing. So he found a new challenge in participating in freeride an skier cross competition’s. But soon he knew that competing was not the best thing about skiing anymore. Since then he tries to spend as much time as possible on the mountains. His brother and most of his friend’s share his passion. Together they are always on the search for the next best day.
