My name is Paolo Marazzi, I’m 21 and I live in Rovellasca, a small village near Como Lake, in Lombardy. I’m currently studying at university in Milan, Italy.
My parents introduced me to skiing, hiking and climbing when I was a child and I am now totally addicted to being in the mountains with my friends.
My biggest passion is telemark skiing and I spend almost all my time looking for big dumps of snow to ski in the Alps.
I’ve been competing in competitions for two years now, and compete in the ski event circuit in Italy. Ex. Skufoneda and Skieda are for sure some of the most important international ski events that I follow every year.
In May 2010 I travelled to Norway with some friends on a ski trip. The conditions were really bad, but we managed to find some incredible powder and we had an amazing time skiing and partying.
Last winter I collaborated with a friend to create a freeride guide for the Lombardia region called “Freeride in Lombardia”.
In my free time I enjoy climbing, especially crag and trad style climbing, and most days I get to ride my longboard too.
