Max has spent nearly his entire life in the mountains. Summer or winter, rain or shine, the mountains are where he feels most at home. He began snowboarding at age 13 and it has become his life’s passion. He’s traveled to many buck list freeride destinations like Chile, Argentina, Russia, Alaska, and of course, his home mountains in the Alps, in search of deep snow and steep lines. Between 2009 and 2013 he competed on the Freeride World Tour with multiple podium finishes including a 3rd place finish at the Verbier Xtreme and placing third in the overall rankings in 2009. Max’s competition days are behind him, but he is always challenging himself on classic Alpine lines and by touring deep into remote backcountry zones.
