Hi Nicolas. As a former shaper and current Corvatsch ambassador, how would you describe Corvatsch?
Corvatsch is my favourite playground, and it’s located in Switzerland’s most picturesque valley. I really feel at home here, in the valley and on the mountain. The combination of an awesome park and an amazing freeride arena make Corvatsch a real hidden gem.

Describe the park in three sentences.
The park consists of the Pro Line, the Easy Park and the Medium Park. It’s great fun for pros and amateurs of all ability levels. You can really tell how much hard work the shapers put into preparing the park each winter – the varied set-up is shaped to perfection every day and is constantly being added to. There really are no limits to creativity at Corvatsch Park!

Which line is your favourite to ride and why?
I love the Pro Line. I can really get some air, and the kickers are perfect for trying out new tricks without it being too risky. The mastermind of the park is Kobi Würsch, and he really excels himself every winter.

The FIS Freestyle Ski, Snowboard and Freeski World Championship 2025 is being held in Engadin. The slopestyle and halfpipe tournaments are coming to Corvatsch. What are your goals between now and the world championship? And what are your targets for the world championship?
My biggest goal is to take part in the tournament. I’m not the youngest any more, but I think if I put in a lot of hard work and stick to my training and recovery plan, my chances are pretty good. And, if I can take part, my goal then is to win a medal for Switzerland! I’m definitely motivated.

What do you want to say to the people out there?
Work hard and be disciplined to achieve your goals. Nothing in life is free. And whatever you do, make sure it’s always fun. See you soon at Corvatsch Park.
