I was born in Freilassing in Southern Germany, close to the mountains around Watzmann. Since 2010 I’ve been studying in Innsbruck (geology and materials- and nanosciences) and at the moment I’m making the mountain guide training in Germany.
What do you like about Blue Ice philosophy?
I really appreciate that the Blue Ice philosophy is not about gaining the highest possible profit, but about developing the best possible product for the athlete.
