Mountain Guide

On foot, on skis, summer and winter, it is since my childhood that I have followed in my mother's footsteps in the many "Sunday walks". These days left unforgettable memories but above all taught me to love discovering new horizons, climbing new mountains and simply enjoying the huge playground that we have around us every day.

After an adolescence devoted mainly to climbing, I decided to participate in the Espoir group of Valais guides to deepen my skills in mountaineering and skiing. These few years of training convinced me that my future job would be that of mountain guide, training which I completed in the fall of 2021.

With the aim of making each day memorable, I would have great pleasure in helping you discover new horizons on skis, in mountain boots or in climbing shoes.
