Ivan Irsara

Ivan was born in Alta Badia in 1969. At a young age he showed interest in art, and went to art college in the Dolomites, before continuing his studies at the prestigious art academy “Accademia di belle Arti” in Milan. Ivan is also a keen photographer. He studied professional photography in Santiago, Chile, and worked for the magazine Paula, an important women’s magazine in that country. In 2003, Ivan returned to the Dolomites, and decided to pursue a career in the mountains. Today he loves to explore and to share his passion for the Dolomites with his clients. In winter months, Ivan and his brother are often seen on the slopes, both ski instructors, excelling at every discipline: downhill, cross country, ski touring, and telemark skiing. Ivan currently lives in La Villa with his wife and family, including his brother Andreas who also guides for Dolomite Mountains.

I was born in the Dolomites, and still to this day I am deeply in love with my region, I cannot think of a better job for me to pass on my passion to a like minded being.”
