Equally proficient on rock, snow, ice and skis, Tino spends the majority of each year climbing and skiing in the Greater Ranges of Asia, the European Alps, the Andes of South America and the St. Elias and Alaska Ranges in North America.
In his work as an professional mountain guide for Mountain Madness and Points North Heli-Adventures, Tino helps clients realize their dreams of standing atop far-flung summits and skiing epic lines, while teaching them the importance of making positive decisions in the most uncompromising of environments. He is a fully certified and licensed IFMGA mountain guide through the AMGA.
When not guiding clients, Tino scours the globe for unclimbed peaks and unskied lines to add to an ever-growing list of first climbing ascents and ski descents. In 2013, Tino and his climbing partner, Alan Rousseau, received the American Alpine Club's Lyman Spitzer Cutting-Edge Climbing Award. Their multiple first ascents in the Rolwaling Himalaya earned entries in the 2013 and 2015 editions of the American Alpine Journal, as well the Piolet d'Or's Notable Climbs for 2013 and 2015. He has also been a recipient of the Mugs Stump Award and Copp-Dash Inspire Award climbing grants.
Tino proudly serves as an Athlete/Ambassador for Helly Hansen, assisting in product development for the Odin line and providing testing and feedback from the field. Tino has also received generous support from CiloGear, Beal Ropes, Liberty Mountain, Backcountry Access, Black Diamond, Patagonia, La Sportiva and Mountain Hardwear.
