Favourite skier of all time. There are some riders that impress me, Fujas, Pollard Hall, Auclair, Carlson and the rest of them. Candide Thovex embodies a unique style for skiers and is my favorite.
Where is your favorite place to ride?
I prefer to go where friends of mine go. Absolut Park has a great infrastructure, where you are given various choices.
