ATHLETE PROFILE: Reine Barkered Swedish Freeride World Tour Champion

“It’s a mind game this sport. Its a physical sport but mostly a mental one. It’s a struggle against yourself basically….to set up a goal of what you’re gonna do, focus on that and actually do it and not back off.” -Reine Barkered

Reine Barkered is from a tiny Swedish town just outside Åre (population under 500).  He is as humble as they come and an outstanding ambassador to the sport of competitive big mountain skiing. Listen to his story of coming up in ski racing, transitioning to big mountain and following his passion to the pinnacle of his sport. Can’t wait to watch him try to defend his title.
