Originally from Boston, Dan has always had a passion for the mountains and now calls Switzerland home. He climbed all around North America, but the Alps were calling. Hearing rumours of jagged peaks to climb he decided to make the pilgrimage to the Alps, fell in love and was determined to stay. His mission to find the best climbing in the Alps brought him to Andermatt where there was plenty to climb.
In 2004 Dan began to build and sell custom built freeride skis. "Experimenting with inverse shapes and rocker we were one of the first ski companies to offer truly progressive freeride skis. Every pair of skis we produced was also part of dream, a dream to live in the mountain and share our passion with others."
Dan's winter dream led him to begin the Guide Education, and after 3 intensive years he earned his diploma as an internationally certified mountain guide. Working as a guide allows him to explore the mountains with his guests, letting people experience something truly special.
