Hi, my name is Stefano Angelini, and I live in Mori in the Province of Trento. I have been working as a full time professional Mountain Guide for 9 years, and three years ago, together with a group of colleagues and friends, started a new venture by forming the MOUNTiME group.
I discovered climbing at 14 and began my first of many experiences in vertical exploration. Starting from the crag near my home, and then the Sarca Valley, the desire to discover and explore new horizons grew ever stronger. After the rock shoes and chalkbag came mountain boots, crampons, ice axe, and skis, all of which became my companions on unforgettable adventures.
My love for this sector and the appeal of the figure of the Mountain Guide led me to follow the training courses to achieve a professional qualification. I live the mountains to the full, and everything from trekking in Patagonia and Peru to ice climbing in Norway has constantly fuelled my enthusiasm and desire for exploration, an enthusiasm that I feel privileged to pass on to the people who want to transform their dreams into real life adventures.
Arco and the Rock Master climbing centre, where we have our Guides’ Office, is our operative base where we meet our clients and where so many projects are born. If you don’t find me there, I am probably hanging from a rope somewhere checking out some new project!

My name is Simone, and I live in Ranzo, a village immersed in the beauty of the Sarca Valley. Ever since I was a boy I have been keen on sports, but when at 16 I discovered sport climbing, my life was transformed because nothing before had ever inspired me so much.
Through climbing I discovered the mountains, and the big Dolomite walls provided the setting for countless adventures. The captivating rock walls and sharp ridge climbs of the summer season alternated with the fantastic ski tours or icefall climbing of the winter.
This enthusiasm led me to specialize as an Aspirant Mountain Guide and then complete the UIAGM Mountain Guide and Mountaineering Instructors Certificate, a profession in which I feel completely fulfilled, with the enjoyment of helping others to realize their dreams.
After working in Arco for a few years as a Mountain Guide, I sat around a table with 5 of my best and most respected friends and the idea of MounTime emerged and our group was born! We soon transformed the idea into a working reality, founded on our total commitment to Mountain Guiding.

It was probably the good fortune of being born in an area dominated by mountains that kindled the passion for mountaineering inside me. My name is Fabrizio, and ever since I was a boy I have always loved mountains, first as a playground, and then later as the setting for personal challenges and emotions.
A long succession of experiences in the mountains, with my first Alpine routes, ice climbs, and finally ski mountaineering, led me to transform this enthusiasm into something more than just a hobby.
As a result, in 2006 I passed through the selection process for Aspirant Guides and in 2010 completed qualification as a Mountain Guide.
Today I work full time as a guide and dedicate my free time to improving my own mountaineering experience. When I can dedicate some time to my own climbing, I particularly enjoy big walls, and rarely frequented areas, where I can put my physical and psychological stamina to the test.

I was born in Trento, a small Alpine city located in a strategic central position for quickly reaching the most famous Dolomite peaks as well as the sunny crags of Arco, and I have always appreciated the wonderful natural scenario that surrounds my home where I was fortunate enough to grow up.
Already as a young boy I was naturally curious and strongly attracted to everything that offered a flavor of adventure, savoring my first journeys on sun kissed pinnacles and snowy peaks, seeking on every trip to get into closer contact with these rock giants that permit you to test yourself not only physically, but also (and above all) from a human perspective, offering the rare opportunity to gain great insight into yourself and your climbing companions.
My great passion for living the mountains every day drew me inevitably towards my present profession: I became first a Mountain Guide and then a ski instructor.

My name is Jiri Leskovjan and I come from the Czech Republic, class of 1967. I started to frequent my local mountains as a child, skiing and walking with my father, later discovering rock climbing with friends and new places to visit.
After graduating in geology I started traveling the world to climb and ski, in particular in the USA, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, South America, Nepal, India, and various others. After wandering and living abroad for a number of years, I returned to Europe to collaborate with an adventure travel agency, accompanying groups to the places that I had visited myself all around the world.
Since 2004 I have lived in Arco near Lake Garda, at the foot of the Dolomites, and since 2006 I have worked full time as a Mounting Guide. In 2011 I became a member of the MounTime group based at the Rock Master Climbing Stadium. I accompany people in the mountains for climbing, skiing, and I also organize trips abroad to uncover fresh adventure opportunities.
In my free time I enjoy myself with friends putting up new climbs and striving the live the mountain experience in all its different facets.
