Alexey Nikolaev

img_1228_webI started skiing in 1996. Back then my teachers were really good riders with more than 10 years of freeriding experience.

In 2006 I visited Krasnaya Polyana for the first time, and there I took part in the heli-ski program of “Vertykalnyi Mir”.

In 2008 I participated in a skiing instructor school which was based on the Austrian methodics. Twice I have worked as a technical guide during the Freeride World Tour competitions.
