Elias Elhardt

Big Mountain

Elias is all about the powder. An accomplished big air contestant, Elias made the call early on that contests were just not his thing. Hailing from Germany, he calls Arlberg resort in Austria his home mountain. Last season Elias teamed up with fellow Arlberg rider Gigi Ruf to release Follow Your Nose, an off-piste collaboration exploring, among other locations, the pillow pockets of Japan and sheer spines of AK in a celebrated full-length release. He followed this success filming with TransWorld for their 2016 release, Insight, which offered him the opportunity to film high caliber freestyle riding near Innsbruck, Austria. If there’s one thing you can count on from Elias, it’s envy-inducing big mountain riding with a smooth style that belies the sheer skill it takes to get down the mountain in one piece.
