Alexander grew up in the Allgäu, which is in the south of Germany. That´s why he learned skiing when he was really young. He already raced his first race at the age of three. Alexander always wanted to do the same as his brother who is also skiing for the german national team. They have the same passion and with training together they push each other to their best. Alexander started skiing on HEAD as a young student and hasn´t changed to an other brand till then.
