Jochen is a 30 year old freeskier and mountaineer born and raised in Dürbheim, a small village in Germany. While spending a lot of time in the Dolomites with his parents at early age, he found his affection for the Alps. To be closer to the mountains he moved to Innsbruck in 2007 and changed his cross-country skis to freeride skis. With getting involved in well-known movie productions, he pursued his passion for exploring remote places and is competing in the Freeride World Qualifiers alongside. In the mountains he likes to combine creative and technical skiing with his background in alpinism. For that his ski of choice is the KORE 105, strong at high speed, but light in playful terrain and high altitudes - the perfect powder buddy.
