In the category of atypical skiers, Chris Booth is a step ahead. This Australian trained in downhill racing, then in mogul skiing at Perisher Blue in New South Wales, and only needed one chance to get noticed in the world of newschool.
At 20 he was accepted at Sydney University Law School. Today, Chris spends 6 months of the year at Sydney University and the rest scouring the earth's mountains. He specializes in backcountry freestyle and is one of the leaders of the discipline, notably participating in invite- only contests around the world and appearing in international films. He is considered an exceptionally talented freestyler.
