A Few Words: I have always been fascinated by high mountains. My first ski tour&summit was in 1966 to the Breithorn with the famous guide Ulrich Inderbinen. The attached photo of myself with Ulrich was taken in 4/2001: on that occasion Ulrich was 100 y/o. Ulrich was also known as " King of the Alps" because of the number of people that he guided on the Matterhorn and due to the fact that he had climbed that famous mountain more than 350 times, including his last climb at the age of 90. Ulrich died in 2004 at the age of 103.

In 1985 I completed the skiing tour Haute Route, and in 1998 my first "real" summit, Mt Blanc. Other peaks: Kilimanjaro (Umbwe route), Mt Rainier,Grand Teton, Monte Rosa, Castor, Pollux and Gran Paradiso. The peak that I always admired, and finally climbed in 2004, was the Matterhorn (at age 58 with my sons)[ see Trip Report for details].
