Last week, Franco-Swiss pro snowboarder Anne-Flore Marxer was in town with some friends and graciously took time out of her shred-athon to meet with the Echo before ultimately taking second in the Chamonix leg of the Freeride World Tour on her birthday! Here’s what she had to say about being a snowboarder first, a female snowboarder second, an industry activist, and an adventurer always.

Echo: Hi Anne-Flore, how did you start snowboarding?

Anne-Flore: I started snowboarding young, and was originally all about freeriding and backcountry since my resort didn’t have a park. I then got seriously into street and rails, moved onto park and big air contests with all of the European events, then I went off to US for the X Games, US Open, and the Vans Super Crown in 2005. During all of that I was already filming with the Psychopit crew, a French crew doing a lot of backcountry filming. This carried on I did a lot more filming when I started riding more in the US.
