Anne-Flore Marxer was born in and resides in Switzerland. The Swiss charger has been ripping on snow for over eight years. And she definitely rocks it on the rails, park and backcountry by day when shredding…but come nighttime AFM is tearing up your nearest dance floor with her 80’s dance queen style.
Having grown up around the epic riding of the Swiss Alps, Anne-Flore has established a riding approach all her own – that truly matches her outgoing and energetic personality. Annie Fast from Transworld Snowboarding describes Anne-Flore best:
“Some riders are part of a session, and some make a session. Anne-Flore is the latter-at the kicker, rail, or on the dance floor. This Swiss Miss has the personality and energy to fuel them all at once. Watch out-this one’s a heartbreaker.”
