The reason why i would really like to win is because the time to reach my dream is running out for me. I've been put on my skis by my parents at the age of three. Skiing quickly became my favourite thing to do, i'm told that it was almost impossible to get me home back from the mountains when the day ended without endless drama. At the age of fifteen i was spending every free day in the mountains with my friends. We started to go skinning up the mountains, because the slopes where to boring and in this way it was easier to find our own secret powder spots. Then sadly other really stupid things in my life began to destract me from what i now believe is my true talent. After the last three winters of training, i'm finally confident enough to take part in some freeriding contests. But i still feel like i wasted the crucial years needed to reach my goal, my dream to become a professional skiier. I'm a student, so money is rare and the preferred way to train for me is to skin up the Bavarian/Austrian alps to get some lines. I could really use real powder practice to get some jumps dialed in (powder and decent avi conditions are really rare here), and the advice and training from a pro like Seth who is in the business for nearly 20 Years would be priceless for me.
So please let me win and give me a second chance to kickstart my skiing career back in where i left several years ago.
