My name is Irian van Helfteren, I am from Holland and spend the winter in the Austrian Alps to snowboard. After the sport school in Holland I finished the “Staatliche Snowboardlehrer” (highest snowboard teacher diploma) and the “Snowboardführer” (snowboard backcountry guide) in Austria.
Beside this beautiful job as snowboard guide I ride freeride competitions and made it, as first Dutch men, in the Freeride World Tour. In 2013 I compete in 7 competitions world wide against the best freeriders of the world. Nearby I ride with friends for photo shoots and with our freeride crew ‘Gnarlberg Steinbocks’ to make movies. Since 2011 I’m ambassador by ‘Respect the Mountains’.
For me, snowboard freeriding is spending time inspectacular natural beauty, having fun with friends, and riding technically challenging new runs and I love to bring over my passion to guests.
