Aiace Bazzana - Through my magic bowl I see my future more more as a freerider...
I am Aiace Bazzana, and i am from Italy, exactly from Courmayeur which is located on the footsteps of Mont Blanc. My career begins when my father, a skiing instructor, first put a pair of skis on my feet, from that moment I understood that nothing could stop me....I was so excited everytime i went to the slopes, to the point that my father had to put me in the car with the skis already on my feet...!
At the age of 4 I made the Courmayeur Ski Club, where i began my ski race history...when I turned 14 I was accepted in the regional ski squad of Valle d’Aosta, through which I achieved some very good results, especially in the faster disciplines. This race career continues a few years only to come to an end as I had my instructorship colors. At this point bored of the old way of approaching and teaching skiing, I decided along with some other friends to open a new skiing and snowboarding school” Scuala Ski&Snowboard Courmayeur”, following the creed of divulgating a new approach to skiing and snowboarding, blending old approach to race and standard skiing along with the new freestyle and freeride techniques. By doing so we gave a new point of view to the local people and everyone interested. In the same period in Italy the new wave of Freestyle spreads,and thanks to this I start knowing people with my same interests, “Freestyle and joy in doing IT”
At the present moment after years as a freestyler I started to move more and more toward the freeriding scene, partly driven by a more deep understanding of the mountain as a whole, rather than just parks and spots.... Through my magic bowl I see my future more more as a freerider, that is why in the upcoming season I intend to concentrate my filming shooting and riding, in deep powder, never forgetting my freestyle heart...
