Current Residence: Cortina d'Ampezzo, Italy
“Yesterday is past, tomorrow mystery, but today it's a present!"
Growing up in Cortina d’Ampezzo in the heart of the Dolomites definitely set off that sort of magnetism that links Silvia to the mountains. She was put on skis trying to chase her brother at the age of 3 and since then she never stopped.
She competed in alpine racing until she was 17, fighting against time between gates, but it was just about time that she would find her happiness out of the slopes. Freeriding had always been the most natural part of her skiing as she used to share it with her dad when she was a kid and later with friends, but she needed to see what she was capable of in this new discipline and so when she was working as ski intructor in France in 2014, she entered the global freeride scene qualifying for the Freeride World Tour. Right on she set her position in the competitions by finishing second overall in her rookie season and winning in her “dreams destination” Haines, Alaska.
In the two years of competitions in the Tour, full of success and incredible trips, she was able to gain more confidence with new mountains and terrains which finally made her realize she liked having more time to explore those wild mountains rather than staying very short days only for the competitions. Here is when she decides it’s time to leave the competitions and dedicate herself to skiing and traveling in a more alpine environment.
She leveled up her mountain skills in high altitude in the Cordillera Blanca by climbing, hiking and skiing 3 peaks above 5500m altitude for her first experiences up high. Now she explores wild environments skitouring and freeriding, traveling through the Alps and the Americas.
When this is not possible you can always find her in the mountains doing different activites. In the Dolomites, where she lives, she trains everyday climbing and setting new highlines with her partner in breathtaking landscapes.
You will find Silvia either traveling the world or at her home in search of new mountains to challenge herself and set new goals.
