Achievements & future projects
When I was 15 years old, I participated in my first ski-touring race: since than my dream is to win ski alpine classic races like the Pierra Menta or the Patrouille des Glaciers. With willpower, technique, ambition, consistent training and professional coaches, I try to reach my goal.

I participate in ski alpine competition for 10 years now. Currently I’m on my third year in the elite class. My projects, now, are the ISMF World Cup, the Pierra Menta, the Tour du Rutor, the Patrouille des Glaciers. Then, I would like to do focus more on mountaineering.
