Stemming from Laax, the undisputed freestyle capitol of Switzerland, and born into a freeski family – he has both an older sister and an older brother who are successful freeski pros in their own right – it was kind of unavoidable that Andri Ragettli would become a great freestyle skier. Nevertheless, it is mind-blowing how quickly he has moved to the forefront of the freeski scene. Andri, who embraces every action sport his hometown has to offer from skating to mountain biking, continues to progress at this pace, there seems to be no limit to his potential.
