A native of the Dolomites, Richard hails from Alta Badia. He began his career working for the forest service, where he did trail maintenance, repairing trails with new steps made of stone and wood, cutting trees to clear the way for new forest roads, and planting trees to serve as avalanche barriers. But the expression of his love for the outdoors shifted to working with people, and he began guiding. In the summer Richard guides hiking and biking trips. He loves to road bike, hike, and trail run, but his true passion lies in mountain biking – he is always looking for new trails to explore, and pushing the limits of what hiking trails can actually be cycled! In the winter he is an alpine ski, telemark, and snowboard instructor. His outdoor forays turn to the trails he cycles in summer, now covered with snow, in search of untracked turns.
Enjoy every day in your life, especially those in the unique Dolomites.”
