“The mountains are my playground.” A quote from Nadine Wallner.
She was born on May 15, 1989 in Bludenz, Austria. In 2013, she became the youngest athlete to win the World Champion title in the Freeride World Tour. She was also able to successfully defend her title in 2014.
Nadine Wallner initially began her skiing career as an alpine ski racer. Through her father, an experienced mountain and ski guide, she already got experience in open terrain during her childhood and youth. At age 16, her career as a ski racer ended after a serious fall.
She then completed her training as a state-certified ski instructor and ski guide and has fully devoted herself to freeriding ever since.
“The powdering in steep slopes and sides means freedom for me. There is the opportunity to learn a way of life, as it would otherwise not be possible. I hold a great respect for nature and the mountains – and I am grateful for every moment that I can be a part of it.”
In addition to skiing, Nadine Wallner is studying Sports and Economics at the University of Innsbruck.
