Roman Rohrmoser
Romans Playground

Born and raised in the Tirol surrounded by breathtaking mountain scenery, Roman Rohrmoser (30) still lives in the Zillertal. From an early age the mountains were Roman’s playground, skiing in winter and climbing or biking in the summer months. He was just two years old when he first stood on skis and competed in skiing races until he was 15.

After which, it was time to leave the well-groomed pistes behind and pursue his passion for freeriding, steep powder and cliff jumps. For Roman the attraction of Freeriding is simply being away from the crowds, living 100% and having nothing else in your head while performing creative jumps and finding perfect lines.
His parents were not too impressed at first but they soon changed their minds when they saw how talented their son was, as Roman demonstrated his abilities at events like the Freeride Rookie Tour and later the Freeride World Tour.

Roman has now bid farewell to the competition circuit and travels the mountains of the world making films, and commercials with the best known skiing movie productions in the world. He considers himself very lucky that he was able to make a profession from his passion and feels privileged to spend so many days out in the nature. Although being a professional free skier involves many obligations, Roman tries to do it as a hobby as well as possible and not only see it as a job – because if the fun in sport is no longer there, then it’s not fun to do it anymore.
Despite all the fun you can have on powder days, safety is an important issue for Roman. Of course you have to expect forces of nature like avalanches or hidden rocks under the snow in the backcountry. Roman tries to calculate these risks and trains to be able to absorb more impact in falls. However, as soon as it gets critical or there’s a bad gut-feeling, he rather aborts a run, because it’s simply not worth risking. Safety first!
