Mario Kaeppeli

Mario Kaeppeli lives for the mountains! Mario leads by example and his canvas is the mountains. He spends his days in the mountains; a snowboard pro and mountaneer guide, and is always on the snow, whether grooming the park or taking a splitboard to the top of an unridden peak. His love and foremost respect for mother nature is refreshing.

What inspires you?

Mother nature. Its crazy how strong nature can be.. we are so small out there. when you stand between big mountains or swimming in the ocean with huge waves... its scary, but in the same time so inspiring! thats why we should respect the nature more. But also some people inspire me... but im talking about my friends and not some celebrity.
