Mountain Guide

Kranj, Slovenia

I was born on 13th of June 1964. I have been practicing alpine climbing and guiding since 1988. I'm professional mountain guide since 2003, I'm also professional ski instructor and mountain bike guide. I was a member of a Mountain Rescue Association of Slovenia. Through all these years, mountains have become my second home and alpine climbing, with all its varieties, my way of life.

My alpine climbing started in the local mountains, Kamnik-Savinja Alps and Julian Alps, which are still my dearest. It continued to the steep walls of Dolomites then in the Western Alps and in the Andes of South America (two expeditions in Peru and Patagonia). I have climbed several first ascents at home and in the foreign mountains, done many ski touring and reached the tops of several fourthousanders in the Western Alps. However, I still found some time in between to wander around Argentina, Chile, West African coast,...

Let me list some of my outstanding ascents: climbing to Poincenot (3036 m) in Patagonia, solo first ascent to Artesonraju (6025 m) in Cordillera Blanca, Cerro Plata (6315 m) in Argentina, several routes in Dolomites' walls (Tofana, Tre Cime, Brenta,...). I have climbed almost all of the great classic routes in the local mountains (The Čop Pillar and Skalaška, Aschenbrener route in Travnik,...) and made some winter and summer first ascents. I sport climb up to IX grade.
All these experiences together with my international mountain guide license obtained through completing a mountain guide training guarantee that I will safely guide you through local and foreign mountains.

I have guiding experience from all around Europe, from Slovenian Alps to Dolomites, Italian, Swiss and French Alps and Kavkaz - Elbrus. I was guiding more than 30 fourthousend meter peaks. I guided Haute routes a few times, Chamonix to Zermatt and also Saas Fee to Zermatt.

Since 2013, I have been working for the British military (Army, Royal Navy, RAF) in Germany around Oberstdorf as their Rock climbing instructor, Via ferrata instructor, Alpine ski instructor and Ski touring instructor.

When I guide clients the most rewarding thing is the smile on their faces when reaching the desired peak and their happiness when we finish the tour.
