Tell us a little bit about yourself. What's your name, where are you from?
I'm Martina Valmassoi, I'm from Italy and I'm passionate about everything who involves adventure and discovery.
When did you get into skiing and what does it mean to you?
I started Skimo 10 years ago. After almost 15 years of nordic ski, i felt I needed to change air. My mom was taking part at some skimo races at night, up the lifts so that's why I started doing it. Because of my mom.
I fall in love almost at first time, it was much more about the adventure compared to nordic ski so that's why I kept going!
Now means a lot to me. Has helped me to grow as an athlete but even more as a person! You experience so many things traveling, racing and being out in the mountains. This puts life in perspective.
Now skimo is more about the freedom to be in the mountains rather than pure challenge, but of course, if you are faster you can see much more in once, so I guess this is a good reason to train!
What gets you out of bed every morning?
I love to challenge myself and I love having goals in life. Big or small, you always have to have a purpose in your day and in life!
If you have this in mind, it won't be difficult to get out of bed every day! (or can be hard just sometimes!)

What's a typical day like for you?
Nice breakfast first! I love coffee and scrambled eggs! Then I'll go out, or for training or for just moving, sometimes fast and light sometimes with my camera to make some memory! Then I'll probably work at home, maybe stretch, a good book, some cuddles, and fun with my cats and at night, why not a nice movie with my boyfriend!
Pretty simple but nice life!
What's next?
Oh, plenty of stuff for the coming season!
Lots of traveling for work, but you know, you never really work when you love what you do!
