Nicolas Müller is a Swiss snowboarding legend. His amazing ability to see and understand the terrain different to most means he uncovers new lines and executes them with aplomb. His enviable record of video parts and competition wins have made him greatly admired by his fellow pro's.
In 1999, he entered the Chiquita Quarter Pipe Competition and won a cash prize of 40 Francs. He has competed sporadically since then but has become most know for his exploits in the backcountry. His filmography reads like a highlight reel, he's featured in 'That's It, That's All', '91 Words for Snow', 'It's Always Snowing Somewhere' and 'The B'.
Müller was born and raised in a small town near Zürich, Switzerland, where it snowed every winter and this enabled him to start skiing at a very early age. In the summer, when there was no snow, he would skateboard and he soon took the board onto the snow. Nico achieved the recognition he deserved and as twice been named Snowboarder's 'Rider of the Year' as well as winning the X-Games Real Snow Backcountry video contest in 2012.
Nicolas is also an impassioned environmentalist. He started the Breathe Foundation which aims to raise awareness about climate change. He works with several other charities to raise the money in support of the environment. He lives a very healthy lifestyle; he is a vegetarian and ensures that each car he drives is eco-friendly.
