Luca Rolli

The mountain guide

I was born in flatlands in 1978. The first part of my life had nothing to share with mountains. Only later, I realized clearly what I was really searching: the everyday adventure in the mountains. I lived my last 15 years between the Dolomites, Sweden, Chamonix and Courmayeur. In 2008 I got into steep skiing and it was love at first sight. Later on I became certified UIAGM Mountain Guide.
Following the tracks of a famous italian skier, Stefano de Benedetti, I left the tracks of my skis on North and East Face of Aig Blanche, North Couloir of Col Armand Charlet, North Face of Pain de Sucre and Couloir Whymper at Aig. Verte. My desire of new experiences leads me in mountains with clients, giving me the possibility to share with passionate people incredible moments of pain, joy and happiness.

Davide Capozzi

The Snowboard Master

I started skiing at the age of 6, and only at 18 with snowboard. In 2000 I became snowboard instructor, becaming one of the first certificated snowboard instructor of Valle d’Aosta. I always loved snowboarding on untouched slopes, both in the forest or in high mountains. In 2002 I started with the beloved game of steep snowboarding in the mountains: over the years I spent more and more time on the Mont Blanc massif, till the point I decided to transform it my home.
I invested my last 10 winters on my passions – freeride and steep skiing -, succesfully skiing many committing lines like: East Face of Aiguille Blanche de Peuterey, Couloir Nord of Col Armand Charlet, North Face of Pain de Sucre and West Face of Mont Blanc. In the last years, thanks to evolution of splitboards, I spend most of the winter searching for new ridable lines and finding quiet spot away from the crowds of snow stations.
