I’m from the French Alps and ski mountaineering was my introduction to the mountain world.
At the moment I live in Grenoble, and I work freelance as a veterinarian.
Between 2002 and 2008 I traveled along the Andean mountain range from Ecuador down
to the south of the continent, eventually I ended up spending more time in Chile and
Argentina in order to go ski touring.
During the subsequent two winter seasons from July to November, I toured
this region on skis.
I was always on the look-out for unusual itineraries, or routes which were not documented.
Faced with the complete lack of documentation on ski touring in this area,
I decided to describe all the peaks I had travelled to.
Through my handbook I hope to familiarise the reader with these important
skiing areas, thereby making it more accessible
and helping would-be travellers in the preparation of their trip.
