Pow, park and urban slaying from young buck from Vorarlberg. You can certainly sense the influence of the area’s OG all-terrain bossdawg Gigi Rüf in his riding…
We were pretty stoked on this part, but didn’t know much about the dude himself. So we asked him who he was:
My name is Lukas Ellensohn, my friends call me Luki. I’m from the western part of Austria, Vorarlberg, and I grew up riding in Montafon and Damüls/Bregenzerwald. Right now I’m studying Geography in Innsbruck, which is probably the best place to combine snowboarding and studying.
In winter I try to spend as much time on the mountain as possible and that’s a lot of time in IBK. I prefer riding powder but if there’s snow in the valley I sometimes wanna hit some street stuff as well. In springtime when it’s slushy you’ll probably find me building some corners or any kind of fun obstacle around the Arlberg area. Or i’m just having some springlaps on the glaciers around IBK.
last season i spent most of my time shredding with friends and filming with Joralulu and Different Direction. I get a lot of support from my sponsors: Northwave Boots, Drake Boots & Bindings, Westbeach, Dragon, AltonsBoardstore and Damüls Skiresort
The season recap was mostly filmed and edited by my childhood-friend Luzian Burgstaller, who’s a real boss!
Lukas Ellensohn prefers to film his tricks in the backcountry but has some legit rail tricks in the streets as well. In this last winter’s recap the result of the days out with Joralulu and Different Direction is rounded with some park riding too.
