Lukas Schäfer is an 18 year old passionate freeskier.
He lives in the mountains in beautiful south tyrol and so he learned to ski when he was 3 years old. He was always fast on his way with skis and jumped every time at the slope edges. With 14 years his dad bought him his first pair of twintips, he joined the vitamin-f freestyle club at the Krownplace and began to train.
With 15 years he got his first sponsors by winning the south tyrolean slopestyle tour. From now on he won many contests around south tyrol. Last season the reggae and hiphop fan went almost every weekend to different contests and won many. After this successful season he signed with new sponsors to which he is really stoked on.
