Now that the snow is melting and most of the lifts have stopped spinning in the northern hemisphere, Flow Snowboarding had a chance to catch up with Mario Wanger to see what his #FlowRituals are now that summer is under way.
How was your winter season this year?
My winter 2014-15 was pretty good! The amount of snow could have been better though…
Any highlights or favorite trips or moments from this winter you want to talk about?
I went to Japan for the first time this season, over New Years. That was so insane. I have never seen so much snow and I never ridden such a fluffy pow before.
Where have you been riding the past few months as the season wound down?
I’ve been riding Sölden, Penken Park and Hintertux the last few days of the season. Riding in slushy parks is so much fun!
Are the European glaciers holding up well for snow and summer snowboarding?
Yeah, it’s pretty good over here. You can actually ride till mid June, then they close till August or September. I guess in Switzerland, they are open the whole summer!
What are your plans for this summer? Are you chasing the snow or taking break?
I have to do a lot of work as a carpenter and maybe a little vacation. I gotta say, after a hard season of filming… I need a break anyway.
What kind of activities do you do in the summer to stay fit and active?
I’m a striker on a soccer team, a lot of workouts in the gym, skateboarding and climbing mountains.
Do you have any kind of diet you stick to in order to stay fit?
(*smiling) Haha… no I don’t have any diet, I eat everything and anytime i want to.
Do you have a workout that you maintain in the summer months to stay fit and active?
Yup. Doing hard exercises in the sport med gym with the trainers.
