Backcountry Ski Paradise

Your guide and instructor Davide started to take his first steps on rock walls. He loves the mental concentration needed to exist on rocks and enjoy nothing more than learning something new, controlling the fear of the void and exploring new places. After studying Civil Engineering, he decided that life would serve him better in the outdoors, so he decided to become a mountain guide. Eight years on, Davide loves his job every day because of the places he gets to discover and share with his guests.
