Tony Lamiche is a high-level climber, mountain guide and steep skier.
"I could have been good at soccer, but the soccer spirit didn't suit me. But you don't know that when you are young, you do what you can do ... One day, I went to see the coach, I told him 'I'm quitting!'. And that's when I started to climb, to do waterfalls and mountains."
When he was one of the top climbers in the world, skiing attracted him. In his committed skiing videos, the educational dimension always remains central.
“We try to explain what we do, what we feel and what we live, but also why we don't act recklessly on extreme terrain. We always keep control by our level, by trust and collective decisions."
Tony uses his XDURO AllMtn 8.0 to load his mountain equipment, skis, shoes, helmet, backpack and poles and to climb the first hundred meters of ascents until finding snow.
Today, Tony is more famous for skiing than climbing. Though that's how it all started.
"The XDURO AllMtn 8.0 has become my best companion on the first hundred meters of ascents."
