Davide Capozzi

Davide Capozzi is an Italian freerider with numerous first descents to his name. He resides in the Aosta Valley in Italy. His snow sliding career began on skis at the age of 6, making the transition to snowboarding at 18. After a brief stint as a snowboarding instructor, he took a trip to Alaska in 2002 and immediately became hooked on big mountain riding. When he returned from Alaska, he set his sights on bigger objectives in his home ranges. He began touring around Mont Blanc , riding steep lines and expanding his mountaineering knowledge. In 2006, he made his first big descents of Sperone Della Brenva and Gervasutti at Tacul….After that, he was hooked.

Today, Davide is one of the boldest splitboard mountaineers in the world. He’s been climbing and riding the biggest lines out there for the last 15 years. He made the switch to split tech in order to get the best performance possible out of his equipment. It's also a matter of safety; when riding in no-fall terrain , Davide knows he needs to trust his gear 100%. He knows he can trust Phantom hardware to perform at the highest level. You can find Davide scouting out new lines , usually far from the beaten path.
