I was born and raised in Bergamo’s area, first as a racer (alpine ski) for Goggi ski club, then I developed an interest in freestyle, first with Skicross (4 years of World Cup and Italian Absolute Champion 2003) and then with real Big Air and Slope Style freestyle contests. I am currently a ski instructor at Courmayeur ski school, I am a federal Freestyle coach, specialised in Freeride and Telemark.
I don’t have a specific first memory, I know, and the photographs testify for it, that I skied more than walked.
If I have to be honest the slopes do not excite me that much now, I prefer to get off the classic tracks and explore steep terrain and walls off-piste.
Favorite snow park: Mottolino Livigno
Favorite location: Courmayeur and Valle d’Aosta
Good company to explore, the satisfaction of earning a descent (in winter with skis in summer with MTB) and the freedom of choice.
There is not just one in particular, also because with work commitments it is difficult to always be with the same person skiing. But there are 4/5 people with whom I find myself particularly well skiing: Simon Croux, Lorenzo Carbonato, Gabirele Ghislaberti, Nicola Borella and Alessandro Picco (even if he is a snowboarder).
TELEPORTER for sure, to be wherever I want at the perfect time.
When I am not skiing, I am studying new trips to do with skis, I go around by bicycle; I am passionate about MTB Enduro, which allows me to stay in the mountains and enjoy breathtaking descents.
Definitely XL, but for tours I feel more like Adventure Carbon Adjustable.
