German skier, Lena Stoffel is renowned for being pretty darn good in any skiing terrain – from speeding down slalom courses, to ripping rails, as well as her flair for freeriding.
She started riding super young (both her parents are ski instructors) and excelled in the alpine ski racing scene, winning the German Junior Championships in slalom aged 17.
After leaving behind the gates, she focused on her favourite aspect of the sport: freeriding. She’s competed in the X-Games and the Nine Queens (the biggest freestyle event in the world for female freeskiers and snowboarders). Yet, after two serious knee injuries, Stoffel was sadly forced to give up her Olympic dream.
Nowadays, this Roxy team rider spends her time riding powder and exploring the mountains creating beautifully shot videos and photographs.
Her latest edit from Japan was released today (prepare for some serious pow envy) and we caught up with the lovely lady herself to quiz her on all things skiing and inspiring girls to get out and explore.
