As a four-year-old, Roos was on skis for the first time in the more than well-known village of Ellmau in Skiwelt. Since then she has been going skiing with her family every year to the same village, and her love for winter sports has ignited. At the age of 16 she made a short trip to the Wolfskamer in Huizen to follow slalom training. Here the interest arose to become a ski instructor. At the age of 18 she left for Tyrol to get her Anwärter, and then went back to Ellmau where she always had lessons to teach at the same ski school. Since 2011/2012 she has been teaching here every year.
In daily life she works as a bartender in one of Amsterdam’s famous brown pubs ‘Cafe Welling’, she stands as DJ Doornroosje behind turntables at events and festivals, she organizes parties in the LGBTIQ scene, and she works as an LGBTIQ activist at Stichting Fonds de Trut. A busy jack-of-all-trades, therefore, and certainly a bird of paradise.
Her greatest passion still lies in skiing, and she experiences the ultimate feeling on a tightly prepared slope early in the morning, already carving towards the most beautiful slopes, most authentic Alm’s, and huts. Enjoying local food, culture and last but not least; a fresh, tightly taped Weizen. She is certainly not averse to the Apres ski, where she sometimes also appears behind the turntables to get the ski and board shoes off the floor.
The best thing about skiing is the feeling of freedom, the improvement of techniques, and the moment that you take the first turn, with the valley in sight, you can be completely detached from the rest of the world. Giving ski lessons also brings her a lot of pleasure. Every person you teach is different, and it’s always the best challenge to coach each individual, and see how someone develops.
