The ski star added to a clip showing him on the slopes: “Even in difficult times you have to be grateful for what you are allowed to do.” He is “extremely grateful” for the family he has and for the fact that he “can still turn his passion into a job and that I can still enjoy it.” At the end of his post he says: “It helps a lot to be able to feel such joy on the mountains. I’m 39 years old today and I look up with a smile and I’m grateful!”
at the beginning of March he revealed in an interview with the “Bild” newspaperthat his father Christian Neureuther (73) is doing better again. “We live right next to each other, so dad is not alone either,” said the ex-world-class skier. In addition, his father lovingly takes care of his grandchildren. Together with his wife Miriam (32), Felix Neureuther has three children aged 5 and 3 years and eleven months. Ski legend Rosi Mittermaier died on January 4th at the age of 72 from cancer.
