I’m from Arona, Italy and I’m addicted to sports! I can’t stand to sit down and not do anything. I’m always moving around trying to find new cool spots! I started skiing in Courmayeur when I was 3 years old and I started freeride skiing at 14 years old.

  • What MOMENT do you ski for?

When you are on the top of the mountain and you look down and smile, because you are surrounded by nature and in front of you there’s a perfect slope with super fresh snow. Those are the moments I ski for.


  • How do you recharge your batteries for the next challenge? 

I like to go cliff diving or play on the trampoline. I like anything that gives me adrenaline.

  • What’s your favorite quote? Why does this quote resonate with you? 

"More than just a big adrenalin rush, it's more like, 'let's explore what's possible in our sport'." Shane McConkey
This quote resonates with me because I always want to try new lines and go bigger than ever.

  • How do you conquer difficult situations? 

I usually try to think about something else, something good. After that I concentrate on what I have to do, step by step!

  • How does your mindset (or attitude) influence your performance? 

I’m usually always happy, so that doesn’t influence my performance.

  • What do you do when you aren’t skiing? 

I enjoy life. I do a lot of sports like cliff diving, MX bike, cross fit…
I also go to University. I’m studying Management Engineering.

  • What strategy do you use to overcome pressure and stress for optimum performance? 

When I’m stressed I like to listen to music and ask for advice from my coach. After that I close my eyes for 2 minutes and don’t think about anything. That’s what I do.
