A few words with Coline Ballet-Baz

"It was my very first at the High Five Big Air, I’m happy that this year girls are invited to the party"

Hi Coline, how do you feel just after the summer?

It was pretty cool with only a few skiing until August 15th due to a knee ligament sprain, but it healed on point so it didn’t bother me that much! We’re skiing in Saas-Fee, Switzerland for a month and having an awesome forecast is perfect to launch the season.

How did it went at High Five Festival Big Air?

It was my very first at the High Five Big Air, I’m happy that this year girls are invited to the party! Saturday’s show was good, I made 3rd and a lot of good memories due to the great atmosphere between girls and the big crowd. It’s awesome to show our sport to so many people, by far on of the best comps I’ve been into.

After that, the season really starts, what are your plans? Competitions? Training?

I’m on my way to a snowdome in Germany to train some rail then we’ll be back in Saas-Fee for a few days before the competitions. First one will be in Milan half November (City Big Air) then the first big one will be the Slopestyle World Cup in Stubai late November before going on the Dew Tour and the other World Cups.

"Obviously, with the Olympics slopestyle is more known by general public now. Before the audience was more an expert thing but I believe people enjoy watch this aerial sport, it’s pretty impressive, some kind of a show so future looks good!"

2018 is a special year because of the Olympics, what does it mean for you?

It means another challenge! I really want to go to these Olympics and to do a great performance, but the idea is also to take every step to go, there are a lot of stops before and I don’t want to ignore them.

Traditionally, when you think about Slopestyle you think more about XGames. As it’s now an Olympic sport, are the mentalities changing about it?

Obviously, with the Olympics slopestyle is more known by general public now. Before the audience was more an expert thing but I believe people enjoy watch this aerial sport, it’s pretty impressive, some kind of a show so future looks good!

Do you have any video/movie/shooting project for 2018?

For 2018 I don’t have a specific video project, I’ll do that next year. I still plan a trip at the end of the season with my skiing and motivated friends and to do another female park edit. It’s something important for me to release some short clips from time to time especially now that I like editing. So, no big project but some short videos as often as possible.
