ABOUT ME

Based in the Aosta Valley of Italy and operating in the greater Mont Blanc Massif, Mike has been coming to Europe since 2011 and living in the EU since 2017.

Of the 138 IFMGA Mountain Guides in the U.S., 33-year-old American ex-pat Mike Arnold is among the youngest. Only five years after his first ski guide course, the Northern Maine native passed all three exams (rock, ski, alpine) within seven months, and all on the first try. In 2014, at the age of 27, he became the 96th American to earn his IFMGA credential. 

  

As a former ski racer, Mike spent his formative mountain years in Colorado.  He chased rarely skied lines and first repeats around the state, as well as guiding in Aspen, Alaska and Europe. The last decade was filled with more than a dozen expeditions to Alaska, South America and Nepal.

Mike lives in Aosta, Italy with his wife, Elena and Australian Shepard “Buddy”.
