My name is Elena and I’m a swiss snowboarder. I started snowboarding with 12 years in Scuol the resort near my hometown Vnà. After I was born in Chur in 1987 we moved to Vnà a small town in the swiss mountains where I grew up with my two brothers and my sister.
In 2011 I completed my diploma at the F+F school for art and mediadesign in Zürich where I studied four years. Since 2012 I’m part of the swiss snowboardteam and I travel to competitions all around the world. I took part at the Olympic Games 2014 in Sochi and won the Big Air World Championships 2015 in Kreischberg. After the Olympic Games in Pyeonchang I decided to quit riding competitions.
Now you can find me more often in the backcountry working on film and photo projects still enjoying snowboarding to the max. This is the latest project I worked on:
