  • While he's now one of the key components driving the strong Swiss team to the top of the FIS Audi ski cross World Cup power rankings, understated ripper Armin Niederer once worked as a carpenter, and the patience, commitment, and attention to detail necessary for achieving the desired objective when working with wood have transferred well to his skiing career.

    A veteran of the World Cup tour since the 2007-08 season, there was little that Armin accomplished in the first several years of his career that suggested he would go on to become the number five ranked ski cross racer in the world that he is today.

    However, in the 2012/13 season, everything changed, and Niederer went from holding a background role to becoming one of the key parts of a Swiss team that has become perhaps the strongest in ski cross.

    Claiming the first win of his career in the first race of the 2012/13 season, "Niedy" would go on to claim five podiums in that year and end the season sitting in second overall, just behind teammate Alex Fiva.

    2013/14 saw him pick up right where he left off, as he took a second place finish in Nakiska (CAN) to start the season and later claimed back-to-back third place finishes in Are (SWE). And while he found himself sitting outside the top-10 more often than he had in the previous season, his consistently strong skiing was still good enough to keep him in the top five in what was a hotly contested year.
