in the fast lane

Born on 16.01.1994 in Hochschwendberg in Hippach, she literally grew up on skis. From an early age, skiing was Rosina's greatest passion. She lived only a few minutes from the Penken/Horberg ski region in Mayrhofen and spent her entire free time on the slopes.

Rosina began training with Hippach Winter Sports Club at an early age and enjoyed her first racing success aged six at the Student County Cup. After attending local primary school, she went to a specialist ski sports high school in Neustift, before attending the Stams Ski Gymnasium; a popular hot house for Austrian ski talent, including Stephan Eberharter, Benni Raich, Mario Matt, Liz Görgl, and many more.

Rosina achieved great things at the 2014 Austrian Championships, finishing in second place behind Kathrin Zettl in the Giant Slalom. She won the Super-G ahead of Anna Fenninger and Elisabeth Görgl.

The 2014/15 winter season did not get off to a great start. Unfortunately, Rosina tore her cruciate ligament at the World Cup Slalom in Levi (NO) and will be unable to compete for the rest of the season. Be that as it may, Rosina remains positive about the future and will resume ski training in New Zealand during the summer of 2015.

Mayrhofen-Hippach holiday region would like to take this opportunity to wish Rosina Schneeberger a speedy recovery and the best of luck for her return to the pinnacle of ski sport!
