GRIGORY KORNEEV – REAL EXTREME!

Grigory Korneev has long been known in the world as an excellent freestyler and freerider. He has many victories behind him. Gregory is an excellent instructor who trained a large number of professional athletes. Friends speak of him as a great friend, alpine skiing colleagues as a professional in his field, the family considers him a real family man. All this characterizes Gregory as a good person and professional.

Childhood

He is from Yekaterinburg. Born September 17, 1984. He studied at a regular secondary school. His parents were fond of mountain sports, and involved their son in this sport. Already at the age of 6, Gregory began to ski. Together with his friend, they rode a small hill in Yekaterinburg. This was his every weekend, until at one moment Gregory became interested in freestyle, thanks to his friend Stas. The athlete realized that the mountains in the Urals had already exhausted themselves, and then he began to be interested in the mountains of the Caucasus and Siberia. But before fully devoting himself to sport, he graduated from the Ural State Pedagogical University in the field of physical geography. Parents fully supported their son in all endeavors and are his loyal fans, and often go with him to the mountains to ski.

Participation in competitions

Grigory Korneev constantly takes part in competitions in Sheregesh, in Krasnaya Polyana and in Khibiny. His first freeride competition was in Sheregesh in 2008. And his next freeride competition was already in 2015, where he took an honorable second place. With regard to international starts, Gregory only once sent a request for a race held in Slovakia, but then everything was canceled due to weather conditions. Next season he is preparing to take part in an international freeride competition. But as Grigory himself admits, participation in international competitions is a pretty penny for him, and he can’t always pass on points, because riders abroad go very professionally and a large number of people want to participate. The 2019 Freeride Cup of Russia recently ended, where Grigory Korneev took first place, this is a great start in the new season before the FWQ.

Riding style

Gregory prefers freestyle and freeride, but, despite his preferences, he is developing in other directions. So, for example, last year he took part in competitions at the jibb contest, where he won, also took third place in ski cross and got into prizes in slopestyle (under a false name). Gregory can rightly be called a professional in his field.

Instructor job

Officially, Gregory has been working as an instructor since 2007. He began to teach beginners in his Urals. At first, they were ordinary people who wanted to learn how to ride, who had just arrived at a ski resort. But as the athlete improved his professionalism, he began to appear special groups in certain areas, such as freeride and freestyle.

Hobby

Gregory is very interested in photo and video filming. He adores the process itself, and, of course, the result of this process. The athlete starred in the project “Ride the planet”, as well as in the film “Wild Snow”, which has not yet been released.

Present

The athlete has been married for a long time. Spends all his time in the mountains, working as an instructor. And also preparing to conquer Europe with his skills. Now he is preparing hard for the season.

Future skiing

Gregory will devote all his free time to preparing for arrivals at European competitions, and of course he will not forget about competitions in Russia.

This was his every weekend, until at one moment Gregory became interested in freestyle, thanks to his friend Stas. The athlete realized that the mountains in the Urals had already exhausted themselves, and then he began to be interested in the mountains of the Caucasus and Siberia. But before fully devoting himself to sport, he graduated from the Ural State Pedagogical University in the field of physical geography. Parents fully supported their son in all endeavors and are his loyal fans, and often go with him to the mountains to ski.
