Today I’m talking to Rocie Benavent who is living in Mayrhofen for the first time this season. If you saw Rocie in the park you would never know that she has only been riding for 1 & 1/2 years! She has really good style on rails and isn’t afraid to push herself to try new things. Out of the whole group Rocie will be the one making suggestions for new tricks which is really nice to hear and it gets everyone motivated.
Why did you choose Mayrhofen for the season?
I heard great things about the park here, and it’s “close” to home!
Where is your favourite place that you have been to?
It’s gotta be Wanaka, in New Zealand! The most beautiful place I’ve ever been to, with amazing people to match it
Where do you work and do you enjoy it? I work at Scotland Yard Pub, the place to be in Mayrhofen! I love working there, there’s always fun people around, and the crew is awesome!
Where do you live and who with?
I live just above the pub, with part of the staff
What made you do a winter season?
I just want to snowboard as much as possible
How long have you been snowboarding for? About a year and a half now
Do you ride with other girls? Yeah! Girls, guys, whoever is keen and stoked to go riding!
