I grew up in flat Denmark far away from the mountains, and even if my parents took us skiing from early ages, it was not in cards that I would later graduate as perhaps the first ever Danish UIAGM/IFMGA mountain guide. Even less likely it was that I would end up living and working in the somewhat vertical world of the Mont Blanc range.

My passion is my family and the mountains. With friends and clients I live my dream, out exploring the Alps and always enjoy a good adventure further away.

Today I am an established guide in Chamonix and run my own little guide company. I am also a Helly Hansen ambassador helping out with the testing and product development in their outdoor line.

Inner Interview


What binding do you use?
Marker F12 touring

Why do you like this binding?
The Marker F12 is a close to the perfect touring "freeride" binding. Fits any skiers that need a solid binding with a good touring functionality.

How did you become involved in ski touring?
Ski-touring was a natural progression for me in my skiing and made it possible to search more secluded lines away from the normal ski-area and basically travel around in the mountains efficiently during winters, whether it was purely ski-orientated or in some mountaineering combination.

What is your all time favorite ski tour?
Some years ago I went to Greenland ski touring. We were away from all civilization, deep in a remote mountain range. That was an all-time adventure

In Chamonix the choice of day tours are endless and a few ones I have enjoyed:

-Col de la Terrasse - Descent by Tres-les-Eaux

This ski-tour takes you over the eastern parts of the Aig. Rouges chain. A fairly big uphill of 1300m takes you through pinewoods to the alpage of the Loriaz. From here a beautiful rise to the Col de la Terasse brings you up to 2600m. The descent down the incredible valley of the Tre-les-Eaux makes for a super nice loop. Away from all ski lifts and off the beaten track you are often on your own.

-Col du Passon- A super classic ski tour in Chamonix.

It's a fun ski tour that has a great skiing to climbing ratio. You ski about 2500m and only skins up 750m.
