Since high school, I’ve spent most of my time in the mountains, either wearing off my skin on rocks, breaking ice with some sharp tool, freezing my butt off on north faces, or just skiing sunny powdery slopes in Switzerland and around the world. Gradually, I decided to make a living out of this lifestyle and became a certified IFMGA guide in 2002. Now I’m working full time as a professional guide and it still triggers the same passion to share magic moments up in the mountains with friends or clients. When not climbing or not on the road, I can sometimes be found at my basecamp in Sembrancher, a little haven for mountain people located in Switzerland just below Verbier.
I love the Whirlwind Hoody because it cuts the wind like a soft shell, but it's super light and comfortable to wear. On a breezy sport climbing day, it's definitely my favorite piece of clothing.
I really like the Helium II jacket because it's as waterproof as a proper hard shell and it's the weight of a single T-shirt. It's a versatile companion to have either in one's backpack for hiking in the mountains or attached to the harness on a multi-pitch climb.
