COME TO SOCHI - WITH DAVE HABLÜTZEL

 

David Hablützel is snowboarder, team player, young and fearless and rocking the pipe preferably in LAAX, if he is not otherwise travelling the world. He says about Laax: ”I love the LAAX ski resort, as it has been my “home mountain” for 10 years. For me, LAAX is "the place to be" during winter.

Dave visits the sports high school in Davos and represents Switzerland in Sochi, an incredible achievement for the 17-year-old!

His team-buddy and friend Lucien Koch said in an interview with People Magazine about him: ”He’s a bit Psycho, brutally bold, self-secure, optimistic, sometimes a bit annoying, and often very attentive. He is also a very good friend and can cheer you up in every situation.”

His personal goals for this season were, among others, to participate in the Winter Olympic Games in Sochi. Since he has now achieved this, he is extremely happy to represent Switzerland, but participating won't be enough, as he wants to show the world what he can do! Above all, he wants to show us his “best run ever” in Sochi. We are sure: “You can do it DAVE!”

He will take us with him on his unique journey to Sochi, and give us the incredible opportunity to look behind the scenes at the Olympic Games in Sochi! Every day he keeps us up to date with his photos and impressions and we are looking very much forward to sharing this with you!
