Pebax Powered video

In the fall I got involved in this cool video making for a commercial of Pebax, the plastic material that Scarpa is using to make some of my favorite boots, the Gea RS and the new Freedom RS.

It was a fun experience and another valuable project to connect with new professionals both in the mountains and in the video making field. Thanks to Scarpa and Arkema for the opportunity. Check my video segment or the entire commercial here.

Mountain Specialists


After years of teaching skiing in Verbier with Powder-Extreme, last winter I decided to move my base to Chamonix, only one hour away, but in a very different Country and mountain range.

I've always been in love with these mountains and since 2004 I've been skiing regularly here, made new ski partner and get after some of the best ski lines ever. The terrain is what made me the "ski-mountaineer" I am now and inspired me to start the Mountain Guide formation. If all goes well next summer I will be guiding as an aspirant guide, in Chamonix and Italy, and I will be starting to create my own list of favorite clients. With this idea in mind and few new ideas gather together with Paolo Belletti, we decided to start a group of independent ski instructors and mountain guides to work under the same name in Chamonix. Mountain Specialists was born. With the spirit of selling a high quality products, combining the values of a ski instructor and the knowledge of a guide, we think that we can take care of any skier, with different level and with different focus. Specific courses or classic private lessons, ski touring of heliskiing, at Mountain Specialist we offer the product that fulfill the desire of any person on that specific day!

So I'm proudly presenting you my new business website: Mountain Specialists

Black Diamond


After a couple of years of support with technical gear as ice axes crampons, and all the climbing tools that I generally need in the mountains I'm incredibly grateful and delighted to announce that Black Diamond has become my partner also for the apparel. I'm happy to wear their technical clothes in the harshed conditions, test them and give them my best feedback. On top of the apparel, backpacks, JetForce and all the most exciting climbing gear will be my best companion from now on. I'm really excited and proud of this change even if I will never forget the support and opportunity that The North Face has given me in the past. Thanks to all, for letting me live THE DREAM!

Cham Lines: Couloir S/O du Col du Diable

Cham Lines Hors Série



I've been using Pieps for many years now, and with every season, I notice how their products has been always on the top of the market in terms of reliability, innovation and performance, which are important qualities when we are talking about first aid avalanche kit. The safety in these years has been my number on e priority and avalanche risks has always been a big nightmare to deal with many days of the season. Having a trustworthy kit in my backpack and knowing well how to use it, has given me more piece and confidence, helping me to focus on the outside evaluation of the snow and slopes in order to have the best skiing experience. Skiing powder is the best feeling in the world! but coming back to tell your friends how was it, is even better!! Stay safe out there and be prepared! Pieps

Summer is gone...


With the first snow flakes on the ground i've got the inspiration to recap the summer passed and launch myself into the new coming winter!
Let me briefly tell u what happened in the last few months. From the spring on I had to switch my focus from snow to rock and get my climbing fitness in order to pass the climbing test to enter the guide course in Aosta Valley IT. Yes, u heard well..., I decided to get myself involved in a new adventure. I'm attending the formation to become UIAGM mountain guide, so i had to step up my level and technique in all the disciplines concerning that work. From rock climbing, to ski touring, to ice climbing, short roping etc...

INDIA Himachal Pradesh expedition


In the meanwhile, in the month of March i was in India where i was involved in a ski mountaineering The North Face expedition, in the Himachal Pradesh region.
The goal of this trip was to attempt a first ski descent of the White Sail (6451m), an insanely beautiful peak in the remote Himalayan range of the Parbati region, near the city of Manali. Here you can see the first blog about the trip wrote by the expedition leader Hilaree O'Neill. The other members of the trip were Jonny Collinson, Emilio Previtali and photographer Chris Figenshau. Plus we had 2 members of Sherpas Cinema with us shooting for Into the Mind ,the new 2 years project movie coming out in the fall 2013: Jay Trusler and Anjin Herndon.
Thank you all for a great adventure!

Even when the high pressure is bringing us only warm temperatures and sunny days we can still find some good snow, epic terrain and fun skiing to share with friends.
Here is an example of a NON powder day around Verbier with Geraldine and Julien!
Enjoy and happy 2013!!

Ice climbing warm up


Since this year I decided to dedicate the summer to the climbing, I also decided to not loose all the arms strength in the winter.
So what to do? Ice climbing! Beside the fact that is fun, and that I feel pretty confident with the tools, we get the chance to do it in some incredible environment! I love it!

Ski time!


The ski season is finally on and the good feeling are back! I feel that this year has never been easier to come back on skis, even after a long stop, and I was amazed how quickly I got back the right balance, the power and the right feelings under the feet. The smile was there already when I bough my lift pass!

Summer climbing


Summer has come and the skis are carefully waxed and store in my garage. This year i decided to take a break and not go in the South hemisphere to ski, since i want to focus on climbing. The Alps are still my favorite terrain to play, and without going far from home i have plenty of stuff to do that i've never thought of doing before.

Grand Teton National Park



This spring my plans of steep skiing in the Alps, never really happen, either for a reason or another, so, at the last minute, i decided to come to the US to attempt a classic steep ski-mountaineering descent: the Grand Teton.

Sport Week photo


Even the italian biggest sport newspaper "La Gazzetta dello Sport" had picked one of Christian Pondella's beautiful photos from Bolivia for their weekly magazine Sport Week!

La Gazzetta is the most red newspaper in Italy with about 4 million reader everyday. Sport Week comes out every saturday, and on the last issue of 03/03 my photo appeared in the Zoom section. Youppy! Thanks Christian and Dave for the great trip again!




January is Japan month. So many people in the last few years have decided to go skiing in Japan, driven by the nice images appeared in the recent ski movies and surely in search for soft powder. To NOT be original this year I decided to do the same.
