My name is Mateo Abascal Vedoya, I’m 25 years old and I’m both Argentinean and Canadian. I’ve been skiing since the age of 3, first learning from my mother and grand-father and later going though the local club ski school in Bariloche. l I’ve skied in Switzerland, Argentina, Canada, New Zealand and most recently, Japan. This is my second year here and I plan on being here for years to come.
When I’m not skiing I enjoy long-boarding and trekking. I like to spend some time every years living in big cities. The energy between people in cities is very different from that of ski towns, and I find that fascinating. At home, you can find me cooking and listening to music. Flavour (food), like music are a major part of the way we as humans create memories in our minds and I think there is a perfect bite and sound for every situation. I take it on as a personal challenge to find the right one for every moment.
