I began to ski at two and half years and I had my first race at four years. When I was 18 years old I was part of the ski team of the Corps of Forester and I had my best results (in top 40’s GS Italian skiers). In these years I won the Italian Citizen championship in GS and I competed many times in FIS races with Nierlich, Gstrein, Stangassinger, Ghedina, Tescari and others.
I stopped skiing because study was my priority. Wen I was 23 I became ski instructor and at 25 I started with races again but even though hadn’t the possibility to train properly, because of my job. I collaborate with a small Italian ski factory (Carpani Sci) to develop GS handmade skies.
HOMETOWN: Auronzo di Cadore – Belluno – Italy
WHERE I USUALLY SKI: Auronzo, Misurina, Cortina d’Ampezzo and many places in northern Italy
FAVORITE PLACES TO SKI: Olimpia slope in Tofana ski area in Cortina d’Ampezzo and Alberto Tomba slope in Auronzo
HOW I LIKE TO SKI: I like to carve on extreme iced snow with GS skies, but “I love” giant gates on hard snow and steep slopes.
WHAT I AM LOOKING FOR IN MY SKIING/EQUIPMENT:
When I’m ready to start ski races my mind needs the best ski equipments. I must have something more than my opponents. With Dodge SkiBoots I really have more.
FUNNIEST/MOST INTERESTING SKI EXPERIENCE:
From 1978 to 1988 (when I stopped high level ski races) I was trained with the Legend Alberto Tomba by Roberto Siorpaes, the best coach in Italy. It was a pleasure for me to learn so much from Roberto and Alberto.
MOST INTERESTING SKIER I KNOW/ WHO I’D LIKE TO SKI WITH MOST:
Ted Ligety is currently the skier that excites me more because his technique enables him to turn more quickly than all his opponents in GS.
WHAT I LIKE MOST ABOUT DODGE SKI BOOTS:
The innovation of materials, the response of end and start of turn, the lightness, the comfort, but most of all the same flex in extremely cold and hot temperatures. …and obviously all questions made by skiers curious to know everything about my super boots.
ANY OTHER THINGS YOU WOULD LIKE TO ADD (FAMILY, FRIENDS, ETC):
Four years ago I ordered my first pair of Dodge SkiBoots and I made detailed pictures of my feet… thanks to my wife who was trying to watch a film during my photo shoot in the living room…
RANDOM RAMBLINGS/THOUGHTS/ANYTHING ELSE YOU’D LIKE TO ADD?
For me sport is adrenalin and speed means adrenalin. Since I have been using Dodge SkiBoots I feel to go faster!
Near me located the bigger producer of ski boots in the world but not the best! Dodge SkiBoots are absolutely the best.
