I am Fabian Lentsch, a 21 year old professional big mountain skier and mountaineer from Austria. Born and raised near Innsbruck in Völs, a city in the middle of the Tyrolean Alps. This provided me with an awesome surrounding for skiing and mountaineering. At the age of 12 I found my passion for freeriding, 3 years later I won my first two big mountain competitions as the youngest participant and got picked up by my first Sponsor at the age of 15.
Today, when I am not skiing at home, I am travelling all over the world with filmers and photographers to explore new ski destinations. That has taken me to places like Canada, Alaska, Norway, New Zealand, South America, Turkey, Iran, Kyrgyzstan, Russia and several countries in the European Alps. I summited Mont Blanc at the age of 13, skied the southernmost 6,000 meter peak in the world, Chile’s Cerro Marmolejo, skied Pik Lenin(7130m) and climbed Khan Tengri(7010m) in Kyrgyzstan. One of my best trips so far was driving a camper van from Austria to Kyrgyzstan and back. We were on the road for 4 months and skied the coolest peaks in the middle east.
