It was pretty obvious that Fabian Bösch will achieve something great someday. At the age of two, he stood on skis for the first time, at six he joined the Skiclub Engelberg and at 14 he became the Swiss Champion in slalom.

But even with such abilities it requires a lot of passion and durability to become a Freeski World Champion at his young age. Being asked if Fabian would do anything differently starting from scratch again, his only reply is that he would have started with freeskiing earlier.

The Engelberg local brims over with motivation and ambition. After his short intermezzo at the Winter Olympics 2014 this might come in pretty handy for his preparation phase for South Korea 2018.
