Thomas Hallen

​Thomas grew up in Sweden but has lived, skied and climbed in the Alps for over 20 years. He began to ski aged 4 (!), and love of skiing inspired a move to the Alps where he became the first Scandinavian to qualify through the Swiss Mountain Guide scheme.

An outgoing personality and a deep knowledge of Switzerland and its mountains make Thomas great company, both on and off the mountain. He guides year-round, spending the winter ski-touring and off-piste skiing all over the Alps and, since 1998, the summer season working with ISM. Thomas feels that ISM is a unique set-up in the Alps because of the knowledge and experience of the ISM team coupled with the exchange of information between guides. His own skills as a linguist combined with great enthusiasm for guiding make Thomas a special person to climb with and a highly valued member of the ISM team.
