I grew up in a small Ukrainian town, in the heart of Carpathian Mountains. I Started skiing at the age of 2 and haven’t stopped yet! I got into the under-16 Ukrainian national racing team, but was constantly looking for something new and ended up as a freeride snowboarder instead. I won a few local freeride events in Ukraine and now compete at Freeride World Qualifier events through North America and occasionally other continents. When not snowboarding, you’ll find me climbing high-altitude mountains or training in a local rock climbing gym.
