My name is Fabio, I am a Swiss snowboarder living in Alaska. I grew up in a mountain town in Switzerland and was on skis for the first time before my second birthday. When I was 9 years old I started snowboarding and immediately was obsessed with it.
I’ve snowboarded for over 25 years. In the early days, I was focused on freestyle, mainly kickers. About 15 years ago I started getting into the back country. Climbing mountains and riding powder is my true passion. I also love riding perfectly groomed slopes with my friends. Having the right gear is very important to me. I’ve always geeked out on gear, snowboards, shapes and materials.
In 2012 i quit my job in Switzerland and travelled around the world for 4 years straight. On this crazy journey, I met my wife in Alaska and here I am.
I snowboard 6-7 months out of the year. Normally starting my season in Switzerland in December, then chasing snow in the USA and Canada and come spring time get into the bigger mountains up in Alaska.
