The cold world of skimo & alpine climbing

The cold world of skimo & alpine climbing

Thursday, April 21, 2011


First time I went to Europe in '78 one of the things that really impressed me was how entrenched alpinism was in the society of France and Switzerland.  A Guide has the same respect in the community as a attorney or doctor here in the States.  Similar in Canada but even more so because the societies know more about them and are exposed to the professional guides even more than they are in NA.  Compare  that to the position a guide has in the US.

Here is a classic example.  Enjoy!  I did ;)   Your kids might as well ;)

Yes, the children gave a unanimous thumbs up to "Mark the Mountain Guide" and quite the teaser at the end. Guess we'll have to get the book. Thanks for posting!
