My biggest satisfaction is to explore new places, and share it with a rope-mate. And to do it as a professional is the realization of a dream. At the age of 15, I knew I wanted to become a mountain guide, I wanted to live in the mountains, teach and share my new passion. In 2006 I realized my dream and I became a professional mountain guide. I like sharing my knowledge and experience with my clients, taking a journey that transforms slowly the guide-client relationship in climbing partner and often in friendship. I am not and never will be a lone climber but "a company" 'explorer. My specialty lies certainly in climbing on ice and mixed in the high mountains. With my clients I climbed the most difficult faces in the Alps, explored mountain ranges, traveled between America, Asia, Africa, and Europe.
Enrico is very competent and helpful, always attentive in making the customer feel safe and at ease. He is an excellent Guide with whom to enjoy excellent days in the mountains. He always tries to make you improve as a Mountaineer, and has the pleasure of teaching and passing on his great experience.It\'s easy to also establish a relationship of friendship. Some of the trips we did were Cascata in Cogne, Via di misto sul Grand Flambeau e Via Rébuffat-Terray sulla Nord dell\'aiguille des Pelerins.
Enrico is very friendly and professional, and likes to teach. I went ice climbing in Cogne with him.
Learning from Enrico for the week was exceptional. He has a fantastic knowledge of the area and local valleys as well as places further afield. He is very talented with his own climbing ability and safety knowledge and he was able to explain clearly and show multiple different techniques for rope-work, safety and climbing. He formulated a very good plan which was flexible depending on weather conditions and he made us feel at ease with his professionalism. I am looking forward to climbing with him again in the future!
I climbed several icefalls in Valle D\'Aosta and various climbs on the Mont Blanc massif with Enrico. The last climb was on sull\'Ago di Money waterfall in Val Nontey waterfall in Cogne where, as always, the output was aimed at achieving autonomy and acquiring every possible technique to ensure the maximum on security. The conditions of the waterfall included several passages mixed with delicate ice. Enrico\'s advice and teaching allowed me to move first in this new situation. Of course, always maintaining an atmosphere of friendship and serenity. I have overcome some of my limits with great satisfaction.
We had some good climbing trips with Enrico in Aosta valley - even if the weather was not perfect, he always found a route to climb! Sometimes ice, sometimes snow, sometimes mixed and also real rock routes!
Enrico is not only an excellent guide but also an incredible person. He works really hard to help you improve your climbing level and build the confidence you need to lead climb, for example. Everything was perfect from the comfy lodge he offers in Aosta to the first-class climbing experience.
Enrico Bonino is a mountain guide with a great experience and an enormous dedication towards the customer. He is also a pleasant person to deal with, and he makes you feel like a friend even if you just got to know him. I think he is the best professional in the sector among those I got to know.
I went Ice Climbing in Cogne with Enrico. He is very competent, friendly and enthusiastic.
