Martin Freinandemetz


"When I was born in December 1969, there was so much snow that my parents couldn't drive me home from hospital. When I was 8 months old, my instincts told me to stop crawling and I started to walk. When I was 2 years old, I started skiing in our garden. When I was 12 years old, my father cut my skateboard in two because I caused a car accident. When I was 16 years old, I bought my first snowboard. Now I'm a bit older and I'm still totally addicted to snowboarding!"

"Born in 1978, it didn’t take long before I learned how to ski in Păltiniș, only 25 km from where I grew up in Sibiu. I attended the ski club of Sibiu and became a racer. I have had the pleasure of skiing in the USA for a few months as well, even during Ceausescu’s time. In 2008, I became a mountain-guide of the Romanian Mountain-Guide Association (AGMR), as well as an instructor on their team."

Iulius Miklos

Mountain Guide

Everything is within us! For me, being connected to Nature is the best way of discovering the universe surrounding us, as well as the one within. Riding powder and barrels is the ultimate way of connecting with Mother Nature, the Nirvana.

Leu-Baratto Marco

Mountain Guide

"Throughout my life, I have been deeply involved in sports activities. I started skiing when I was just 4 years old and have been snowboarding for over 17 years. I graduated from the University of Physical Education and Sports with a specialization in Skiing, and I also hold a master's degree in Management and Marketing in Sports. I am a certified snowboard instructor and have experience as a shaper, involved in building several trails in Romania, such as Piatra Neamt, Postavaru Bike Park, Azuga, as well as snowparks like Stubai Zoo, Sudelfeld, and Transalpina. Apart from snow sports, I also enjoy riding bikes, both on the road and in off-road conditions. I have experience in organizing sports events. While I may struggle with putting it into words, I'm more comfortable taking action and being in the great outdoors rather than writing lengthy descriptions about myself. :)"

Ion Alexandru Leonard aka "Corse"

"I got the ski virus back in 1995. Since then, I’ve managed to stay infected every season. I love skiing in all its disciplines, but my heart goes to freeride and freestyle.

I think that skiing should stay fun, funky, effortlessly stylish and elegant."
