Karin Pizzinini

Karin was born and raised in the Dolomites and currently resides in Alta Badia. This has given her plentiful opportunities to pursue outdoor activities year-round: she telemark skis, ski tours, hikes, rock climbs, climbs glaciers; has cross-country skied, ski toured, and cycled competitively; and is a member of the mountain rescue team. Karin’s personal mission is to transmit knowledge. In 2007 she began guiding, which quickly became one of her favorite ways to do this. Through guiding, she is not only able to share her enthusiasm with her groups but also to provide them with a safe journey. And she doesn’t stop there! In 2021, Karin obtained her Bike Guide qualification. In addition to being a hiking guide in her beloved Dolomites, Karin is a science and chemistry teacher at the high school in Alta Badia and has guided her teenage students on countless local and international excursions. She also works as an art director, making documentaries about Ladin arts and culture. Her other passions? Travel and photography. She can be spotted around the globe, anywhere from Japan to Washington State, during the off-season!
