Nicolas “Nico” Müller was born in 1982 and grew up in Aarau, Switzerland, riding the great halfpipes of Laax Resort. Soon, Nico was gracing the pages of major magazines with his unique style. For the past five-plus years he has been considered by most the best all-around rider in snowboarding. He rides every aspect of the mountain with his signature style, very reminiscent of one of the sport’s other great stylists, Mr. Terje Håkonsen.
King of the mini-shred and one of the most down-to-earth individuals you will meet, Nico stands alone when it comes to busting out a proper method in the backcountry and throwing down his trademark one-footers in the pipe. While he doesn’t devote much time or consideration to contests these days, he’s still a glowing and influential presence in the sport; committing most of his time to backcountry riding and working on sport-altering video parts with Absinthe Films.
