Geraldine Fasnacht is a professional Swiss freerider, base jumper and wingsuiter flyer. Addicted to adrenaline since her teens, she literally lives for extreme sensations, pushing her boundaries as far as she can. The quest of exploration is her only leitmotiv. At the age of 21, she competed at the X-Treme in Verbier, Switzerland, the most difficult freeride competition in the world, which she won. Came the start of a twelve-year series of professional events during which she built an impressive curriculum vitae for herself.
But freeride is not her only passion. After 300 parachute jumps, she finally started base jumping before falling in love with wingsuits. As an explorer, she opens new lines by jumping off renowed mountain pikes. Some of her jumps started over 4000m high, such as her amazing jump from the top of the Matterhorn in June 2014. Despiste the risks linked to her profession, Géraldine is far from being a daredevil. On the contrary, she is able to keep a cool mind to always make the right decision, even when under oppresive pressure.
Three-times champion at the formidable Freeride Xtreme Verbier competition, Géraldine Fasnacht trains in the mountains in summer by jumping off the side of mountains wearing her wing suit. She flew off the summit of the Matterhorn last year – a world first.
Her vision? Get to know the mountain.
Standing on the Exit point, Géraldine’s mind is filled with all of the experiences that landed her on this peak. With nothing between her and the jump but a few seconds, Géraldine is faced with the discovery of what truly matters.
Riding and flying down the mountain demands everything from Géraldine; mentally and physically, as well as technically.
