Swedish outerwear brand Colour Wear are understandably stoked to announce Mario Kaepelli as the latest rider to join their outerwear team. Mario hails from Switzerland but now lives in the snowboard mecca of Innsbruck, Austria. At just 24 years of age and with over 12 years riding under his belt, Mario is as talented as he is experienced and was one of the most recent additions to the now (sadly) defunct Forum team. Mario has come from a park riding background but is increasingly taking his tricks to the backcountry which has helped him be picked up by Gigi Rüf’s Slash Snowboards.
Mario also has a wildly irreverent side and recently teamed up with Ethan Morgan for an ‘Ethan vs Mario’ web series of ridiculous challenges and suitably outrageous punishments. Mario joins Kareem El Raife, Leo Crawford and Risto Ruokola on the CLWR team.
