Adam Pernikar


Adam was born in a city, but was destined for the mountains. At an early age he began seizing every opportunity to explore nature — in particular his native Czech mountain. Adam's passion for nature could only be matched by the challenge of sport. It all began with him and his cousins shredding on a local hill off a countryside home. It had one rope-lift and a 400m (120ft) long slope, but this was their haven, this was home. 

Soon, the feeling of two wooden boards gliding on snow became Adam's focus. He had a short stint ski racing, but a starting gate was too limiting and his desire to explore brought him to the backcountry. Groomed slopes to untouched powder, free-riding and ski touring become his every day routine. 

From those tiny Czech mountains and Austrian 3000m peaks to Switzerland’s tallest mountains in Europe, the outdoors is his life. Adam takes the mountain seriously and has developed his mountaineering skills and an intimate knowledge of this terrain, making him a well-equipped ski and ski touring instructor. 

Adam has a background in Sport Management and Photography and is currently part of our ski instructor and touring team.
