2010: Nicolas may well be the most naturally gifted rider to have ever strapped into a snowboard. Of course humble as he is, he would just shrug and deny this claim. He might however, argue that he has more fun than anyone else. Nicolas began as a young weekend warrior, traveling to ride at Laax resort from his home in the Zürich suburbs. Quickly consumed by his desire to ride, he thought of nothing else, rode feverishly and started entering competitions. Rising through the ranks of amateur halfpipe contests, Nico began his ascent toward the world of professional snowboarding. Fast-forward a few years to the beginnings of Absinthe Films, and Nicolas was there. He filmed for our first film Tribal, alongside one of his childhood heroes, Michi Albin, and he has been with us ever since. And in this time, Nicolas has filmed some of our most memorable material. From the faces of Haines to the forests of Japan, to mini-shred madness all over the world, Müller has stayed true to his passion for pure riding. He also become one of the most influential riders of his generation. Nicolas has recently moved to Laax where the whole journey began, from his home he can walk to the lift. From his new homebase, he is working toward becoming the ultimate Laax local.
