AEGM* Mountain Guide

Miriam Marco

Miriam's story lies in her strength, courage, determination and comradeship, as well as in large doses of friendship and trust. "Thanks to my profession of guiding, I can get everyone to enjoy great moments in the mountain, in the snow, on rock, on ice... that sensation of feeling small in vastness of the mountains".

The story of Miriam Marco began when her parents gave here her first skis, when she still wore diapers. When every summer, she would discover different mountain likes in the Pyrenees and then began looking for ascents to the summits. When that was not enough, she found climbing and couldn't avoid getting hooked to the sensation of the void.

It continuous, when she chose her studies for the first name: Forest Engineering, in Lleida, of course, very close to the Pyrenees, always directing her sight towards the mountains. At the same time, she began to work as a skiing instructor at the weekends. So, year after year, journey after journey and turn after turn, took her to the first Spanish Young Alpinism Team and after to the National Alpinism Team. Some years later, with great experience behind her and despite her youth, she trained as a guide.

Expeditions, trips and prizes, but also very difficult moments in the mountains, along with her on going development always in the same direction, have made Miriam passionate to share her great little world, her great knowledge of the environment and good work.

David Sanabria

David is a discreet person, a lover of the mountains of the Val d'Aran. He is one of those people, who with few words say a lot. Once you are in the mountain with him, one can discover another side of his personality, the guide… A person with a passionate personality, willing to share his experience and make you discover the secret corners of the valley.

His parents, both mountain lovers, passed their passion to their kids. Growing up in the Val d'Aran was a privilege, there his father, also a mountain guide, would enjoy any chance he had to take David and his siblings to practice outdoor sports: skiing, climbing, hiking...

In his teens he started practicing kayak and spent a couple of seasons snowboarding. Then, came his first wide freeride skis and that was the revolution. Those skis would take him to freeride competition scene and after winning all national competitions; he was the first Spanish to compete in the Freeride World Tour and achieving much success.

Innate adventurer, he has pioneered numerous canal descents the Pyrenees. He has also fulfilled many of his dreams and goals such as skiing in Argentina, Chile, Bolivia, Peru, North America, Africa and climbing many of the most emblematic large walls of the planet.

Lionel Philippe

UIAGM* Mountain Guide/Ski Instructor graduated from ENSA*

Lionel Philippe

Lionel Philippe discovered the mountain for what it transmits. The pleasure or the discovery of what you breathe in, when you're in the mountains... From admiring a peak and trying to climb it, to living in a small town, where, day after day makes going to cut wood something normal.

He lived the same way in a small town in the French Cerdagne, Sauto, where his grandparents lived. This fuelled his passion for such life, and motivated him to earn his living and enjoy this life. There and then, his training began, first as a ski instructor in the ENSA (Ecole Nationale d'Alpinisme Ski Et), which he then completed with the High Mountain Guide Training in Chamonix.

Skiing has been a very important part of his life; he has worked in many countries, from the Alps to Russia, looking for places with perfect snow and distant mountains. After much traveling, he chose to stay in the Pyrenees. The reason is that today, these mountains continue to give him the sensation of wildness, probably, because these mountains have been better preserved and are not so well known as others.

In addition, the culture and exceptional cuisine experienced in the valley make him feel these mountains are his home.
