Born in Valle d'Aosta North West Italy Shanty has always had a passion for sliding on snow with skis. After some years dedicated to the activity of the ski club and after becoming a ski instructor, he approached the world of skicross first with the Italian national team, then with the Swiss Skicross Academy. With them he found his true love for Freeride skiing! He collects several podiums and several placements in the top 10 of the FWQ.
In the meantime, he decided to add another piece to his personal training and attend the course for a mountain guide. Shanty loves to travel and create videos exploring wild mountains around the world.
