Project Ylläs-Levi 2019

 

 

Monica Eriksson

Position:
Application Consultant WFM, Visma Enterprise AB

Experience with skiing:
Basically non-existent in adulthood, I skied a few miles on the field last year.

Why did I apply:
I read about the challenge and thought it would be fun to take the opportunity to improve my skiing skills and to try out where my own limits goes. That it's a team challenge where we can fight together and hopefully inspire other Visma colleagues makes it extra
fun!

My expectations:
I expect to experiences many fun moments, many hours of hard work and a certain amount of doubt along the way, but above all I look forward to a fantastic ski experience together with new friends in the Visma-team on April 13 in Ylläs-Levi!

Motto:
Visualize the goal and do what it takes to achieve that experience...

 

Patricio Beck

Position:
Technical Support Manager at Visma Movenium.

Experience with skiing:
As a child and teenager living in Täby, a Northern suburb of Stockholm, you filled your spare time with winter fun stuff, amongst cross-country skiing. Loved it. Have skied a couple of times the last 8-10 years, no long distance races.

Why did I apply:
Since I early this year stepped out my comfort zone and secured a start number for my first Vasaloppet in March 2019, I also wanted to work hard at my physical shape, develop fitness and ski experience and to be able to power myself on skis for the 90 km journey.

I have since I started at Visma, admired the culture around the adventures of Visma Ski Classics races, and Project Ylläs-Levi is a great opportunity to gain benefits related to fitness, strength and balance, together with motivated colleagues. I couldn't miss out on this opportunity to become part of this project.

My expectations:
Really looking forward to this fantastic adventure. I hope to gain skills that will help me develop strengths and technique. Also looking forward to be pushed to the limits by the coaches for me to reach a new level of skiing :-)

Motto:
Never let good enough be enough!
