Your skiing in three phrases?
Easy, natural and risky.
Favourite run on the circuit?
The Super G in Altenmarkt, because of the great turns and the difficulties of the slope.
Your Rossignol skis in three phrases?
Stable, sure and strong.
Their main qualities on snow?
The way they are stable at the end of the turn and the speed they make afterwards.
Do you have any memories of skiing as a child?
I have many good memories: skiing with my friends in the powder and the trees in Courmayeur, with my brother on the road in front of my house and some trips with my family (Vallée Blanche).
Your mum is a farmer ski racer, does she have an important role on your skiing career? Does she help you a lot giving advices etc…? How do you manage with her presence as a journalist on the World Cup tour?
She is my mum and of course she has an important role in my life but she'd never pushed me to ski. She only transmitted me, together with my father, the passion for skiing and sports in general. When she is on the circuit I've no problem, maybe I can go with her and do something funny, she is a friend!
Yourself in three phrases?
Stubborn, competitive, open-minded.
A special habit before the start of a race?
It's not a mania but I use to eat chocolate, especially dark. All the rest is routine I think.
Does racing ski oblige you to have a special nutrition program?
Mmmm ... I eat what I like, I try to control myself, but I can't give up on eating sweets especially ice-cream!
Your hobbies when you’re not skiing?
All kind of sports: tennis, golf, climbing, acrobatic, water-sports and trekking. I like also going to the cinema with friends and reading, especially when I'm away training or racing. I love dancing and shopping as soon as I can. I also like cooking when I'm at home! I'm also studying at the university and gave exams in SUISM in Turin; in autumn I'm beginning the 2nd year.
Which Internet sites do you visit the most often?
