“I started skiing, when I was two years old. What brought me to skiing, was that my family was passioned about skiing. Because I don’t live in the mountains, my family and I can go skiing only on weekends. When I got into the skiclub in Crans-Montana, I competed in my first races. In the beginning i skied really for fun, my aim then was not to become a professional. At the age of thirteen, I had to make a decision: Skiing, or playing soccer? It wasn’t easy, but I remember very well why i choose skiing: It is the amazing feeling I get from the speed, and how much fun I have. What I also like is, that I practise with a lot of my friends. When I got fifteen my goal was to become a professional skier. This decision now is the reason I can travel around the world, spending much time in nature and doing what I like.”

A Q&A With Luca Aerni

What about the products are you most psyched on and how do they help you?

As I ski a lot of slalom races it`s really important that the shinguards fit very well. With the Carbon Shinguard from Slytech I found a perfect friend. They are also light and they allow me to be as dynamic as I want.

What's the perfect day of shredding to you?

Normaly I ski a lot in the gates and this is a lot of fun, but for me it`s a normal day. So, when it’s been snowing a lot over the past days I can`t wait to ski some powder with friends and family. Jump over little rocks or do some slalom in the forest under the sun, those are my favorite days to rip around.

Gnarliest or scariest experience riding?

A few years ago I bought a new mountain bike. On that day it was raining a lot, but I absolutely wanted to try my new bike. So, after climbing up for some kilometers, I found a little single trail. It was really fun until a deer jumps out in front of me. I was really scared and my heart was pumping, I will never forget this.
