Per As

We're fortunate to live in a small tranquil mountain farming village (45 people), close enough to La Grave, but far enough to appreciate the true mountain environment.

La Grave is a wonderful area making a great base for the surrounding mountains, be it in the Winter or the Summer.

 

I really enjoy being able to take my clients out into mountains that they maybe would never have considered visiting.

My tools of the trade vary from season to season and where I might be, whether is skinning up on light weight touring skis in spring to riding my wooden Swell Panic snowboard in perfect champagne powder in the depth of winter.

As my "Office" is quite often on the move, it will see me travelling to old favourites as well as exploring new terrain.

Away from the mountains I come back down to sea level, spending as much time as possible by the Ocean.

Freedom of space and opportunity to discover is as great as your imagination will allow.

Highlights: 

  • Technical Director (11 years) Swedish Mountain Guides Association

  • Vice president at the Guide Bureau in La Grave
  • Traversing the Alpine arc on skis - in search of the best descents. 15 weeks of amazing ski touring.

  • Being able to take my clients out into mountains and giving them an experience they would sometimes never have imagined. 
  • Discovering all those great mountains out there, together with great people
