IFMGA Italian Mountain Guide
Born in NW Italy in a region surrounded by mountains, Paolo started to ski and trek as a kid, always wanting to explore 'beyond the next hill'.
He has travelled to ski and climb in Scotland, USA, Canada, Nepal, Chile, Morocco and Mali, but his preferred mountains are in his backyard - the Alps. From Mont Blanc to the Dolomites, a lifetime is not enough to know the whole range. As a Mountain Guide, Paolo is well known for his patient and easy-going attitude. He likes every mountain activity, following the seasons through the year - rock climbing in autumn and spring, ice-climbing and skiing in winter, alpinism in summer - and likes to share this passion. Paolo is proud to be part of the very experienced ISM team and enjoys the international atmosphere of ISM.
Testimonials For ISM
Summiting Mont Blanc was an important milestone for me which I am grateful to all at ISM. Particularly Terry, who is the ultimate professional never compromising on safety. Max is a pure gem with wonderful guidance and outstanding people skills in abundance.Altogether a brilliant week!
Mont Blanc Ascent
Good mixture of progressive instruction and learning, climbing and guiding. We climbed some very good mountains from good huts and made the best of the mixed weather conditions. The course also used a range of situations and locations to cover a wide range of skills and techniques.
Classic AlpinISM (Instructional Course)
Just a quick word of thanks for the course last week. Our guide Tom was excellent and covered a lot of miles to ensure we got the best conditions and great routes in and was always ready with a word or two of advice when needed - please pass my thanks on to him,
