Hansjorg Auer



Hansjörg has always believed that mountains are not just places of mesmerizing beauty but also gateways to excitement and new experiences. As a young boy growing up in Austria, beneath the jagged pinnacles of the Dolomites, he and his brothers would guide sheep from the family farm into the mountains every summer and the thrill which accompanied those special moments of independence still follows him on his mountain adventures today.
