Each month we’re going behind the scenes with the amazing ambassadors you see frequenting Powster gear on our social media, asking them some burning questions to get a picture of what life like on the professional side of the snow. This month we have ur first every freestyle ski ambassador Thierry Wili! Thierry began competing in 2019 and has already achieved third place on a world cup event. Currently he's overall second in the europacup ranking. Thierry is also a part of the Swiss Freeski Team.
