AboutFrom an early age, Marco Confortola discovered a passion for the mountains, thanks to his father, Alfonso. It is a passion that has never left him, but rather it has taken him to climb eight of the Eight Thousanders to date. On 17 September 1990, at just 19, he became an Italy’s youngest Aspirant Alpine Guide for 5 years. On 28 June 1993 he became an International Alpine Guide, the youngest in Europe, for 4 years, and since 14 September 1995, he has also been an Alpine ski instructor. As well as this, he is part of the National Alpine Rescue Corps, from 1994 -1998 as an instructor, since 1995 as a helicopter 118 rescue service technician from the Caiolo base (Sondrio) and from 1990 to 2003, he was deputy station head at S. Caterina Valfurva.
To be able to continue to live in the mountains as a guide, ski instructor and helicopter rescue worker. I would like to be able to manage a mountain refuge one day, with my wife. I would like to keep climbing the Eight Thousanders as long as I am physically and mentally able to do so, and as long as my sponsors will let me. I think about getting old, with my love by my side and I can picture myself together with my customers, who will have also grown older together beside me.
