I am an IFMGA certified guide based in Chamonix. I travel worldwide in pursuit of mountain adventures with my clients. I began the year skiing the legendary "Japow" on the island of Hokkaido, Japan, from January through February. In March, I am backs to Chamonix and the European Alps to guide the classic hut to hut routes, a variety of ski mountaineering objectives as well as lift-accessed freeriding. From May until September the focus shifts towards rock and alpine climbing. I guide on the most popular mountains in the Alps, including Mont Blanc and Matterhorn. In September and October you will find me leading expeditions in India or Nepal. In between all of this, I find time to use his expertise in the mountains to work on movies, commercials and other commercial projects.

I am also an accomplished ultrarunner, having completed the 166km Ultra Trail du Mont Blanc, 120km TDS from Courmayer to Chamonix, 100km Ultra Trail Sierra de Monsant and many other challenging runs. It's hard to choose favorites, but skiing from the top of Denali in Alaska, and the 7,546 meter summit of Mustagh Ata in China stand out as a couple of my most memorable ski experiences in the mountains. My favorite climbs are the ones I made in Peru, Yosemite and Chamonix.

What an adventure! After 5 days of acclimatization far from rest (I'm not ready to forget the crossing of the arete d'Entreves), we were able to try the ascent of Mont Blanc in ideal conditions! Thanks to Pawel Kunachowicz, I was able to touch the mountaineering in the high mountain safely and in optimal conditions!

It was a great experience to be guided by Pawel. He created such a warm and relaxed atmosphere, that we felt like being on a trip with a friend. Still he conveyed so much confidence and security, that we weren’t even a bit nervous about doing some mixed climbing routes, which we wouldn’t have felt able to do in the beginning. So these two days in Chamonix with Pawel led to a considerable growth of our self-confidence in our alpine skills, for which we are really grateful. I only can recommend Chamonix Vertical and Pawel as a guide and hope to experience the mountains with them again soon.
