Meeting point 7:00 am at the office of the Bergsteigerschule Pontresina. Welcome, material control and drive to the Bernina Pass. Ski tour on the Piz Minor (1000hm, 3.5h) and then ascend by cable car to Diavolezza. At dinner we enjoy the great panorama of the Bernini Mountian Range. Overnight in a 6-bed room.
Ski tour on the Piz Palü. We start early in the morning on the Pers glacier, where we prepare for the ascent. Leisurely we look for the way through the Cambrenabrüche with its impressive crevasses. At 3730 m we leave our skis and climb with crampons and ice picks the last few meters up to the eastern summit of Piz Palü. With good conditions, we go even further to the main summit. From the ski depot we ski via Pers and Morteratsch glacier to Bovalhütte. Overnight in a shared room.
With more than three participants a second mountain guide will accompany us on this day to ensure maximum safety on the summit ascent.
Today we will experience a quiet and secluded area of the Bernina region up close. Let yourself be surprised. From the Piz Tschierva we have a great view of the Piz Bernina and its surrounding. From the Boval hut we climb via Fuorcla Misaun or Piz Misaun to Piz Tschierva (1100hm, 4.5h). Then departure to the Hotel Roseg. Overnight in a 6-bed room.
Today we climb from Val Roseg to Piz San Gian (1200hm, 4h). An incredibly beautiful and long descent takes us directly to St. Moritz Bad.

I was born in 1961, I live in Campitello di Fassa, in the Dolomites, together with my family. I have two sons, one is a mountain guide, the other is a ski instructor. I am a certified mountain guide since 1982, an instructor of guides, alpine ski instructor and a Federal coach for ISEF.
Being in the mountains has always been my passion, guiding people, teaching them climbing, mountaineering... during the various seasons of the year. I very much enjoy drawing nice curves in fresh powder snow and discover the charm of the frozen waterfalls.
My curriculum and professional mountaineering is made of many ascents and some openings of routes in the Dolomites and the Alps. I climbed in Yosemite Valley (California), Ben Nevis (Scotland) and Norway, Greece, Spain and Sardinia. I did also several high altitude climbs like Mt Denali (Alaska), Ama Dablam (6828m), Cho Oyu (8201m), Manaslu (8163m), Shivling in India (6545m), Cotopaxi and Chimborazo in Ecuador (5897m and 6310m), Patagonia (Argentina).
Feel free to get in touch with me if you are coming in the Dolomites for skiing (alpine, freeride and ski touring), rock climbing, sport climbing and multi pitch climbing. It will be my pleasure to guide you here and let you discover my secret spots.
Stay up-to-date on the best adventures!
