Hi there, my name is Loris Reich and I was born and raised in Locarno, Ticino, in 2004. My hometown is in the southern part of Switzerland – It doesn’t have any snow but it does have a lot of sunshine and palm trees!
During a winter holiday in Tirol in 2010, I tried snowboarding for the first time. I didn’t realize then, that this experience would lead me to discover my great passion for snowboarding.
I had previously tried several sports, including, wakeboarding, wake-surfing, skateboarding, football and even skiing, but up until this point, my biggest passions in life are snowboarding, travelling and learning about different cultures. I love diving into new and unknown spots for a ride, chilling with friends, learning from the best riders and sharing experiences.
I am an eager student and I try to learn and work very hard every day, so that I might take one step closer towards my ultimate dream; The Olympic Games. In an effort to reach this goal, from Summer 2017, I join the Sportmittelschule Engelberg
