About the Guide

 
 

Hello everyone, my name is Carlo Alberto Montorsi, I was born 38 years ago in Sassuolo.
Since 2008, due to my love for these places and the work that I was beginnig, I moved in the Apennines of Reggio Emlia, in the town of Toano.
I’m a UIAGM ( union International associations guides de montagne) mountain guide since 2010.
To become a mountain guide has been a difficult and challenging path, which lasted four years. My instructors taught me to maintain the maximum safety possible, for me and my clients, in situations that could be dangerous if not correctly managed.

Our work includes several activities according to each season. We teach courses, and accompany our clients in the mountains.
In the summer: mountaineering, rock climbing, via ferrata, mountaneering in the high mountains (4000 mt and over), canyoning and hiking.
In the winter: winter mountaneering, ski off piste, ski touring, ice climbing, hikes with snowshoes, lectures on safety in the mountains, avalanche awareness, understanding the snow pack.
We can teach complex things to our students in an outdoor environment, that nowadays more and more people are searching for. You can feel strong emotions, explore the exposure, enjoy the adrenaline rush of unusual activities, all in complete safety.
I deeply love my job and the place where I live. When I accompany people the mountains, I take them into my world, where I’m an expert, but where they are not used to being.
For this reason they can be overwhelmed by emotions, and the beauty of the mountains, suddenly they realize they are able to do things that they never thought of being able to do, and they are happy.
When I teach, I like to do my best, every day I learn something new from my student’s, how to teach better, how to help them learn more effectively. And when they become independent and they call me to ask me advice on how to deal with ascents and to tell me how their adventures went, it fills me with pride.
I like to describe my job with these words:
I am a realizer of dreams.

I teach the passion with passion.

We could help you to enjoy yourselves, we’ll help you experience real emotions in the mountains, allowing you to discover the wild mountains, but especially you’ll discover places inside yourself that you didn’t know
