First I would like to introduce myself to you:
My Name is Pia Widmesser. I was born on 02.10.1984 in Rosenheim and I grew up in the Bavarian Alps. Together with my sister and my two brothers I´ve learned skiing in the good old ski resort Sudelfeld. At the age of 16 - still wearing the ski-club jacket and actively racing, I started to enjoy more and more skiing off-piste, jumping cliffs and hunting bottomless powder between the races. With 16 I got invited from some good norwegian friends to come to Norway to join a Freeride Event. This wonderful trip was the start to my freeride carrer and even so I am skiing for so many years I am still hungry to learn, explore and push my limits every day.
Whats your inspiration?
I enjoy the feeling of cruising powder together with my friends. On the other hand I love the mental and physical challenges of a difficult line. It is a great satisfaction to push my limits on a big mountain line and still pull it off exactly the way I have planed it.
What´s your top 3 career highlights/most fun moments so far?
The World Tour and especially the Verbier Extreme is for sure the highlight of my skiing career, but also my film projects – only with the girls, the trip to Japan and also the Argentine trip was one of my best experiences.
How did you spend your summer?
For most of the summer I have done a work experience for my studies in business administration. But now I am done with my studies and I enjoy summer being in the mountains either mountain biking or hiking. Our yearly alp cross on mountain bike is definitely a highlight.
I know Anita for many years because it´s a well know company in our region. For me it´s super important that I can concentrate totally on my sport and that my equipment works perfect. So for me Anita sport bras are a perfect partner for my every day sport.
