Peter Pflugmacher started skiing when he was 3 years old. In the beginning he skied at his homespot with his parents every weekend. Later, Peter was in the local ski team and started to race. But he got bored after over eight years of racing and became a park rider for some seasons.
That was his first step into freeskiing but Peter needed more. He headed over into the backcountry and discovered the enormous potential. In austria he did some small freeride contests with his friends. Peter often works as a photo model for various companies and does lots of shootings

Can you tell us a little about each pair of skis, and about what sort of conditions you use them for?
The Bridge is my allrounder for everything. You can ride it on groomers, off piste or in the park. The low rocker makes switch riding a lot easier.
