I love ski mountaineering because it is a beautiful sport where you spend whole days face to face with the mountain.
I am fortunate to live in a wonderful location, so it is enough to look at the mountains!
Rest is not rest, but the effort to change is rest!
This is the phrase of a strong mountaineer, Bruno Detassis. I like it a lot because it really reflects my person.
With experience and reflecting, I’ve learned that giving up is not an act of cowardice.
Fortunately, I did not have to make too many sacrifices. Unfortunately I chose to leave school early to dedicate myself to the mountains. If I were able to return to the choice, I would not do it again.
My current performance is related to safety. I don’t let myself be influenced by others. I try to maintain a safety threshold that is always high.
I climb a lot and I’ve done a lot of road cycling in the last few years.
I think a lot about the possible consequences of the choices I have to make, and I choose those where security is the greatest.
