„This dream challenges my capabilities in order to get to places that only few humans have reached before. You find yourself more and more exposed and challenged. That is what it’s all about in the end. The development is the incitement, just like in any other sport; it’s all about taking it to the next level. It’s just like life, like evolution, which we’re all part of. Developing further is what counts the most. And ski mountaineering is the next step from normal skiing. There aren’t too many people who practice this sport… maybe because ski mountaineering means taking another step closer to the edge, skiing down steeper lines and finding oneself in the most exposed and remote terrain.”
