«Happiness is doing what you’ve always dreamed of doing». Patrick – Pat to those who know him – Burgener is personal joie de vivre incarnate. He was already a member of our national team at 15 years old, and this most Valaisan amongst Vaudois first strapped into a snowboard in Crans-Montana, although he hardly knew how to walk at the time. His progression has been meteoric. Multiple Swiss champion, in big-air, halfpipe and slopestyle, he is also shining in the World Cup, where he’s been giving a string of top performances since the beginning of the season. A self-taught guitarist and singer, Pat is also passionate about music. He is currently working on releasing his first pop-rock album.
