However, fate spares no man and like many top-level athletes Pat got injured. After a snowboarding injury in 2014, Pat used the time off the snow to work on his second passion: music. He teamed up with his brother Max, who also is a talented guitarist, and a childhood friend to create his band.
His fist singles met a great success and allowed him to play at world-class venues like the Montreux Jazz Festival in 2016.
Helping Pat to find his balance, music gave him wings to reach new heights in his snowboarding career, even realizing his dream to represent Switzerland at the 2018 Olympics in PyeongChang where he finished at an amazing 5th place.
In March the same year, he release his first EP called The Route in reference to his life path, sharing its highs and lows that make him feel alive. Surfing on all this positive vibe, in between two Summer festivals, Pat flew to San Diego to record his second EP with Jasper Leak, a talented Australian producer well known for his work with Sia. The release is planned for early 2019.
