Per left Gothenburg in Sweden for Chamonix, and his first full ski season, at the age of 18. That was 32 years ago and he’s never left the mountains. In the early 90s, he heard of a wild place called La Grave in the southern French Alps. He has been living there ever since.
Per is an IFMGA mountain guide and has guided people in skiing and climbing, all over the world, for 25 years. For many years, Per has been involved in the training programme for future Swedish IFMGA mountain guides and still works as an instructor and examiner.
”I am very fortunate to be able to travel to a lot of remote places for skiing. Ski touring is a great excuse to see new and beautiful places, and to meet interesting people. Every time I skin up towards a col or a summit, it gives me that very special, curious need to look over the other side. I just love that.
Although travel is exciting, I do love to explore the areas and valleys around where we live, and - for obvious reasons - even more so now.”
