Located in Andermatt, Switzerland, we are local guides. Having skied and climbed here year after year, we know Central Switzerland like the inside of our pockets!  Our goal is to share our passion, knowledge, and skills with you. Located less than 2 hours from Zurich, Luzern, Lugano, and easily accessible by train, Andermatt is a perfect mountain destination! We prefer small group sizes to provide a personal service and the most enjoyment possible. And at the end of the day we want to send you home with a big smile on your face!


Join us for an unforgettable day in the mountains!




Passion for the mountains is what brought me to Andermatt in 2003. With a pair of hand built skis and everything I needed in my backpack, I traveled to the Alps in search of adventure.


Arriving in Andermatt I found endless snow, steep lines to ski and jagged peaks to climb... Immediately I fell in love with Central Switzerland, and determined to find a way to stay, I founded Birdos Freeride Skis.


In 2004 we began to build and sell custom built freeride skis.  Experimenting with inverse shapes and rocker we were one of the first ski companies to offer truly progressive freeride skis.  Every pair of skis we produced was also part of dream, a dream to live in the mountain and share our passion with others.


This dream led me to begin the Swiss Mountain Guide Education, and after 3 intensive years I earned my diploma as an internationally certified mountain guide.  Working as a guide allows me to explore the mountains with my guests, letting people experience something truly special.
