Gabriel Indrist Season Edit 2021
High Speed Big Mountain Riding in the Tyrolean Alps
The usually broad grinning Eastern Tyrolean energy bundle Gabriel Indrist released his season edit … and it’s impressive!
His birth place in the wild mountain ranges close to South Tyrol might have influenced his style of riding big mountains. Attending a snow sports school that regularly brings up world class skiers and snowboarders probably did the rest.
At just 24 years he makes riding down huge, steep faces at around 100km/h look easy.
As usual for many attending the School in Tyrolean Stams Gabriel started competing in Freestyle Euro Cups at a young age, at around 16 years old. Later he said goodbye to the freestyle competition scene and joined the FWQ tour for some time. Gabriel in many ways just might not be your usual person.
The contest scene and in general prescribed pathways always seamed too narrow for him. He is a dreamer and free spirit at heart. And so, just because one path seems to be the easiest and most common doesn ́t mean he would take it. Rather he would go out and look what else there is to see.
So when Fabi invited him and good friend Konsti Ottner to join the Snowmads Truck on a 90 days road trip he didn ́t hesitate to join. They road tripped all the way from Austria to Iran, traveling through the Balkans, Greece and Turkey. Gabriel brought lots of laughs and a seemingly endless desire for exploring new places and cultures to the truck.
The experiences made on this journey, to use his own words „inspired him deeply“ and reassured him that „there is more and things can be done
Not much later he bought an old camper van from the junk yard and rebuilt and renovated it with lots of sweat and love.
Watch out for this young Austrian „Force of Nature“ when he passes by in his van rather slowly or rather fast on his snowboard.
And enjoy 3 minutes of high speed big mountain riding or should we say flying!? Beautiful lines in any way!

Thanks for the great times spent together on some recent Snowmads trips, Gabriel! So happy to present your season edit to the Snowmads World. You’ve „so got it“ and we love you!
