Laura is a Mountain Leader and a Ebike Instructor.
Her immense passion for the mountains has led her to travel them by all means: on foot, on skis, on rock or icefalls. Every season and every terrain has its particular charm. After her studies as an Interior Designer, she matured the awareness of wanting to make her love for the mountains a lifestyle and, why not, a job: the possibility of passing on one's passions to others is a privilege that not everyone can afford!
