Skiing has fascinated me as long as I can remember. Therefore my main focus on guiding is on freeride and backcountry skiing. I grew up and live in the valley of Engelberg, which is known as one of the best freeride spots in the Alps. My work as a mountain guide is characterized by checking out new resorts and their skiable terrain. Therefore I have a wide knowledge of places in the Alpes and the Andes.


My clientele appreciate my open minded personality and my distinctive sense for the best snow conditions. In their feedback they often mention my professionalism and also my motivating and calm personality. These characteristics allow me to find a fine balance between guaranting security and optimizing the experience.

Whatever your ambitions in the mountains are, I look forward to joining you in realizing your dreams. For the upcoming winter 2023/2024 I am pleased to welcome you in the area of Serre Chevalier, France, where I will live and work.
