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.
I love to travel, because there is nothing like a freshly shaped park or halfpipe in the mountains, or meeting new people and seeing new places. Skiing has already led me to different places all over the world.
I’m a halfpipe competitor. The feeling of competing isn’t comparable to anything else. My passion for skiing and competing pushes me to become my best self, to really live up to my full potential. I know what I want in life and I will work for it and I won’t let anything stop me.

I’ve been through some rough times with injuries, but I will never let it stop me from getting back on skis. We know all the risks going into it and we decide that it’s worth it. Because the times of utter misery are so worth it for the times of complete happiness. I love skiing so much, I get so much out of just one good day of skiing I could take on a whole other year of injuries. That is what keeps me going, my passion for the sport. I don’t ski because I love the feeling of skiing, I ski because it makes me love the feeling of living.
My main goal is to ski as much as possible, to reach my full potential and become the best skier I can be. I really 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.
“Sometimes skiing is the hardest thing you do in life and sometimes skiing gets you through the hardest times in life.”

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