Born in Alta Badia in the Dolomites, Andrè wasn’t always a mountain guide. In fact, his first profession was as an electrician, something he still does during the off-season. But the call of nature was so strong, he became a ski and snowboard instructor in 1993. Andrè is especially passionate about skiing off-piste on the beautiful mountains of the Dolomites. The warmer months find him cycling the breathtaking trails and passes that weave through the forests and the mountains here. If he’s not cycling, he’s hiking or climbing a via ferrata, especially on his favorites Tomaselli, Piz da Lech, and Mesules. A world traveler, Andrè’s has visited Thailand, Australia, and the Caribbean, and biked throughout Italy and the Alps. At home in the Dolomites, he enjoys dining on traditional Dolomites dishes like turtres, spetzle, and gnoch da zigher, and enjoying the excellent wines from Alto Adige – Gewuerztraminer and Lagrein.
My favorite things about the Dolomites are the many possibilities I have to do the outdoor activities, cycling, biking, hiking in summer, skiing in winter, and the excellent food I get around in huts and restaurants.”
