Stefan Palm - UIAGM mountainguide

I became a Swedish International mountainguide in 1994, UIAGM.  Since then I have guided year round all over the world. Rockclimbing, alpine climbing, trekking, skitouring, offpist lift-skiing, heliskiing and expeditions. I love my job and I always think of new places to take my clients. Safety is the first issue, then comes happy days with magic ski-descents and good company. Never too far away from a good laugh and a good meal:)  My interest for skiing /climbing and the nature started early. After I finished school I spent quite a few winters skibumming in Chamonix,  then I attended a Tourism and Sport school for two years in Kiruna, in the north of Sweden.  During the years 1991-94 I did my training to be a mountainguide, and got my badge 1994. Member of the Swedish Guide Association (SBO) training and examining team since 2002. I have enjoyed longdistance multisport-races in NZ and Argentina, a great way to see the country. Pia and I decided to travel and take our jobs everywhere. We love New Zealand. My favorite travels for skiing at the moment is Japan and Chile, and India.... and northern Sweden.... well, in fact, the world is magic. Today heliskiing in the north of Sweden and around the world is popular, and I like it too. THOUGH skitouring is life :)
