These days Chris Werren spends most of his time in the mountains all over the world. He was born in a small settlement outside of the renowned tourist spot Gstaad in Switzerland. Already at the age of 3, his parents introduced him to skiing on the powder snow terrain in front of the family farmhouse. Since then some time has passed, and Chris has become a passionate backcountry skier and mountain sports enthusiast. Today his hobby is his profession.
