Peter Guyan


Married to Ursina, 2 Childern (Andri 3 and Nina 2) we are living in our new house in Trin Mulin, Graubuenden, Switzerland.

My profession:
Mountain Guide, Skiteacher, Irata Level 3, Para-Taxi Tandem Paragliding pilot, Canyoning guide

My obsession:
Nature, climbing and skiing!

Owner of the mountainguide schools Go Vertical, Bergsteigerschule Pontresina and Swiss Avalanche Academy.

"I love my family very much and seeing my children explore the World.
I like the differences; skiing and climbing on the same day, paragliding and kayaking.
I get my strength from nature by working and being out there!"

Peter was born in 1976, started skiing when he was 3 years old and climbing at age 10 with his brother on a Rock in Haldenstein, Chur, Switzerland.

His climbing/mountaineering/skiing achievements he's most proud of :

1997 Mount Mc Kinley Alaska USA with skis to the top
3 times Patrouille de Glacier: from Zermatt to Verbier in 9h on skis
Heckmeierroute (Klassik) Eiger Nord Wall Switzerland
2005 Grenztour Graubünden; 77 Days, 180000 hm and 1000km
Mount Ama Dablam Nepal
Nose El Capitan, Yosemite USA

Peter's favourite place for climbing is the Rätikon, CH. It's part of his home, because he takes care of 240 cows in the summer underneath the walls there and in the Winter his favorite Freeride spot is Klosters, Davos.

Peter's dream is to one day climb the Lotus Flower Tower with his son who just turned 3 years old.
