Florian Soom

Born in the Swiss Alps in 1987, Flo started skiing at age 3. Since then, Flo has tried most things and trends, including snowboarding, telemark, kickers and rails (when younger), but found his passion in the backcountry. After taking many courses and avalanche trainings sessions, Flo decided to become a back country guide and he worked several seasons as a ski instructor in Switzerland and Kirkwood before ending up at California Ski company. Fluorine has Master Fitters Certification and specializes in back country boots.
