Born within the historical association in 2001, the school gathers / brings together some of the young mountain guides that they want to live of the mountain guide profession.
A choice without compromise to deal with passion and determination. For the moment the guides that are part of the school are 14. Young guides who have chosen to live this passion turning it into their profession.
Our main activities are those related to the accompaniment to the mountains: alpinism, climbing, trekking in the summer season; off-piste skiing, heli-skiing, ski touring and ice climbing in the winter.
How many people we accompanied to discover our mountains; with many of them now we have established a relationship that has lasted for years and every time we can involve them in something new and exciting. Every request that comes to us from them is the confirmation that we made the right choice!
Lately we have expanded our offerings with canyoning, team building workshops and a series of activities that bring people to the mountain, but that does not necessarily require a particular expertise or capacity.
In between seasons, when you can not go up in altitude we provide our familiarity with the void, rope maneuvers and our resourcefulness to so-called high exposure jobs; jobs for which the use of ropes and other alpinism equipment makes it much faster an emergency intervention in places difficult to reach: monuments, buildings, pylons, etc. … The winter sees us chase, with skis on our feet, between the valleys of Alagna and Gressoney in search of the best snow and the most exciting runs. Since our mountains had become a mecca of off-piste skiing, we had more and more requests from skiers from around the world to accompany them to discover the white folds of Monte Rosa. Indeed, to think of it, a bit ‘of merit for such fame is also our own and from the outset we have sought to enhance our mountains in the right way: by promoting it, making it known and making it a little’ more accessible to everyone, but always with an eye to its preservation, keeping always a bit ‘vague and mysterious that whoever comes after has the impression of advancing in a still very wild and protected environment.
In summer we are always ready to accompany novices or experienced climbers on the most beautiful and famous tracks of Monte Rosa; from classical and panoramic ascent to Margherita hut, the great crossings to collect many peaks of 4000 meters, up to the elegant ridges that have made so famous our massive.
Now, thanks to the will and passion of some of our associates, Valsesia begins to offer a lot to climbers on rock with cliffs and multi-pitch routes that have nothing to envy to those of the most famous and crowded.
We can therefore consider ourselves a school of true 360 ° professionals, able to meet all demands concerning the vertical world; conscious professional, enthusiastic about their mountains and their craft / profession … the best job in the world!
