Erik Borggren

1979. Our Managing Director from the West Coast of Sweden. This dedicated young man is the envy of his friends, not only because of his beautiful wife but that he can ski all day and call it a job. But we all know he is a hard working office guru. Swedish herring or Italian carpaccio, this gourmet guy knows how to enjoy it all.

Henrik Hultberg

1968. Our Creative Tour Producer lives in Champoluc, Italy, where he runs the Ski Lodge Sherpa Prasec. His strongest mountain memory is the peak climb of Kilimanjaro.
