I’m a mountain guide and alpine ski instructor and trainer.
Since many years ago I enjoy transmitting the enthusiasm that I feel for the mountains, in any of the possible mountain disciplines: alpinism, ski, climbing…
I’ve always had a special interest for sports and teaching sports at all levels, from beginners to complex guiding in all kind of mountain terrain.
Stay up-to-date on the best adventures!
