susanne was born in1974 and grew up in stockach, a little town close to the bodensee in the south of germany. her father, a ski instructor and racer, taught her skiing at the age of two. as a talented racer she skied many kids competitions in black forest ski team. in her youth susanne raced severel fis-races and competed in the german championships in 1993 (special slalom).

at the age of 19 susanne started her ski instructor education in the german ski association (dsv). afterwards she qualified for the black forest ski association, in which she is still teaching.

even in summertimes susanne likes to race in different competitions. at the age of 14 she gave up gymnastics and started cycling. she liked to do long distance swimming and running so she finally raced triathlons. in 1996 susanne became a member of the famous "hansgrohe triathlon team" in schramberg, with which she was racing in landesliga and international competitions for 3 years.

susanne studied to become a school teacher for sports, art and technic works. as she has always been dreaming of living in the mountains in 1998 she took the chance to move to garmisch-partenkirchen in bavaria. now working for a ski gloves and garments company she gave up her teacher-life and made her hobby the profession.

need 3 more words to describe her: action, challenge in sports and work, keep smiling.

future plans: advance her kitesurfing skills, looking what the ski world could else provide race in telemark competitions next winter.
