It’s not the years in your life, it’s the life in your years. I don’t take anything for granted and I love living my life to the fullest! I am a skier, a freeride coach and geographer from Slovenia, lately spending winters in Whistler BC. Thanks to my dad I’ve been standing on two planks since I remember. I improved my ski technique through alpine racing, eventually got bored of hitting gates, jumped to “the dark side” and never looked back. Skiing brings joy to my life and gives me freedom to express myself. I live with awe of the beautiful mountains although I take a lot of risks at the same time. I am passionate about challenging myself as much physically as mentally and passing on the knowledge to the younger generations.
