Born in Nendaz (SUI), in the heart of the 4 Vallées, Richard Amacker jumped on the skis at the age of 2 already. A competitor at heart, he devoted himself to alpine skiing for sixteen years, including five years on the FIS circuit. At the age of 19, after obtaining a CFC from Plâtrier-Peintre, Richard closed the chapter of alpine to start another - Freeride. Since 2008, he has distinguished himself in the field thanks to very good results and victories on the Freeride Qualifier Tour, the European Cup, as well as an extraordinary first place on the World Tour, then another podium after his return from injury and a legendary line opening at the famous Bec des Rosses in Verbier. At the same time, Richard takes part in numerous promotional films for internationally renowned brands. He also brilliantly obtained his federal snow sports teacher certificate and continued his training until he became an Expert Swiss Snow Sport after brilliant exams. Richard also becomes a member of the ISTA family, which gives avalanche lessons, in order to finalize his snow education and to be able to pass on his knowledge thereafter. In 2016, he completed his training as a next generation alpine ski coach and in the same year joined the Education Pool Swiss Snow Sports. Today, Richard has only one goal, to pass on everything he has learned through his experiences and his training, to share the difficult moments of his career, as much as the moments of glory, pride and joy. He also intends to transfer his values in all safety matters, with the seriousness and the pleasure that characterizes him - the enthusiast.
