Fabian Bösch - Star in three worlds

Training in the winter sport region of Engelberg

Fabian Bösch

Discoverer and prodigal son, determined and freedom-loving, eccentric yet quiet. That’s Fabian Bösch - the freestyle star from Central Switzerland.

Early starter

He clinched the World Slopestyle title at the age of 17. A mere one year later, in 2015, the Engelberg native made his big coup at the US X-Games in the Big Air category. Bosch has been the first Swiss since 2004 to win gold in the world’s biggest extreme sports event.

At home in the snow

The roots of his success are to be found in his passion for snow sports. It was all very much predestined given that he had one of Europe’s most extensive ski regions complete with versatile runs on his doorstep.

‹Engelberg is a challenging area for skiing. That’s why I like it of course.›

Globetrotter

Bösch catches lines on four to five continents each season, covering thousands of kilometres in the process. He cruises the biggest ski regions and the world’s most spectacular parks. One thing makes Engelberg unique, however.

One day on-piste, the next off-piste

Bösch and his friends carve their way down the piste, doing flips or going off-piste, depending on the weather. They cavort around in the snow, moving expertly and at speed.

Preferably in the air

It rarely takes Fabian Bösch long to start executing some jumps. He spent years polishing his technique as a member of Engelberg Ski Club. But his love for tricks was at odds with the racing sport rules. “Doing flips is simply a lot more fun,” he admits. So he decided to switch to freestyle.

An exception to the norm

He rode up an escalator with one arm while other athletes were preparing for their Olympic appearance in PyeongChang. If Fabian Bösch wasn’t already known for his impressive sporting achievements, this video ensured he gained worldwide fame.

This is what it’s all about

The winter sport region of Engelberg offers an altitude difference of 2,000 metres. A paradise that can be justifiably proud of its freeriding terrain and après-ski. Or as Fabian Bösch says «Engelberg can hold its own against the best ski regions in the world».
