Passionate and driven, that’s probably the best way to describe me, Isabelle Hanssen, born on April 3rd 1994 in The Netherlands. Started Freestyle Skiing in 2009. Since I’ve started skiing my whole life changed. It became a full-on addiction, and I can tell you, that there is no better feeling than landing a new trick successfully for the first time. I fell in love with the playful, creative and progressive side of the sport, and later the competitive scene. Skiing has already led me to various places all over the world.
I am a halfpipe competitor. The feeling of successfully landing a run when it matters most is indescribable. My passion for skiing and competing pushes me to always better myself, to strive for my full potential. I know what I want in life and I´m willing to work for it.

I have been through some rough times with injuries, but I will never let it stop me from getting back on those skis. My passion for skiing runs deep, I love skiing so much that just one good day of skiing makes it all worthwhile. I do not ski because I love the feeling of skiing, I ski because it makes me love the feeling of living.
My focus is to spend every minute I have on skis to the fullest, no day is wasted. My goal is to become the best skier I can be, to reach my full potential. Besides this I want to promote freestyle skiing in The Netherlands, to help the community grow and create more support for the skiers here.
For the last few years, I have been travelling all over the world to compete in high level halfpipe contests. Working hard for my goal of competing in the Winter Olympics.

At just the right moment, I light the match.”
