Hello out there! My name is Vincent Schmid and I am 14 years old.
I was born in Chur, Switzerland and lived in Lenzerheide-Valbella until I was 7 years old. Lenzerheide-Valbella is a famous ski resort located at 1’500 meters above see level and I already had my first contact with snow as soon as I started walking. I started to ski at the age of 3, that was my first step into my small freeskiing career.
At the moment I live in Hausen am Albis, close to Zürich, but after the summer break I will change school and be at boarding student at the sport school in Engelberg. There are plenty of good freeskiers and snowboarders visiting this school that by the way is sponsored by the Swiss Olympic. Nowadays I just try to ski as much as a can, have fun riding with friends and do some contest riding. The past season I had some good results and could improve my skiing a lot.
For the future I just want to have fun skiing and get a name in the freeski scene.
