Grown up in the mountains of Switzerland, I turned my passion into my profession shortly after I moved to Colorado in 1997. I founded Alpine World Ascents and began working as a full-time ski & mountain guide locally and internationally. In 2019, I returned to my Swiss home turf but I continue to guide and instruct full-time.

I specialize in custom-designed instruction and guiding. Please inquire with me on how I can provide my expertise to make your mountain aspirations come true.
