Eva Walkner World Champion, what's next?
+ After winning the FWT for the second time, what are your next goals ?
My next goal is to finish my Alaska film project. I started organizing it in 2013 and we had to postpone it for 2 years. I hope we will find some cool mountains and lines!+Do you want to stay in the competition ?
I think I will go for another year. But if i compete one more year, I'll try to push it a bit more. I will work on some tricks and on dropping higher cliffs before the next season starts. If I come back, I will go more on my limits. If it works I´m happy, if not it´s also ok. I´ve nothing to loose...+ What do you feel like when the season is finished ?
When the season will be finished (end of may when I'll be back from Alaska) it will be a great feeling. I got the title again, had many podiums, good runs and a very cool movie project.
I´m very satisfied with my season. But after a few weeks of relaxing and coming down I'll need to start with the preperation for the next winter and the organization of some other cool projects I´ve got in my mind.+What are your occupations ?
That´s a full time job! 5 hours training each day and after, some office work.+ You go to Alaska in a few days, can you tell us more about this project ? How is it born ?
When I was injured in 2013 I was kind of bored. Waiting for my knee surgeries, in between of my physio I was a bit lost … So I thought, "what is your biggest dream?" "It´s going to Alaska."
As of today I´ve been there 3 times but back in 2013 that was not the case. So I started with a concept, trying to find sponsors and a TV Station. Everyting worked out perfect and I got a pretty big budget together.
It is about hiking, the adventure and the beauty of the mountains. Not showing off but a real authentic movie. If We cry We cry, if We are afraid We show it, … It´s a documentary about hiking and skiing in exposed lines in the Alaska Range. I´m not a professional mountaineer but a skier. So the hiking and the technical part are gonna be interesting for me!
We will be in the base camp for around 2 weeks. That´s gonna be fun :)+ Other projects ?
I already have a couple of cool ideas in my mind. But it´s to early to talk about it...
