” Luca is a native Italian but an adpoted Chamoniard at heart.
Embodying the spirit of Chamonix through a combination of extreme feats on a snowboard and living a life in the mountains that is both tranquil and free.
He divides his time in Chamonix making steep breathtaking descents snowboarding and seeking out new adventures on the wildest mountain in the world, from the Himalayas to the Andes, from Caucasus to the Zagros.
Luca has developed his style both technically and asthetically whilst tackling some of the most extreme routes in the Alps.” – MONTAGNARD
My name is Luca, I’m born on Christmas day of 1973 in Asti, a small town near Torino, in the north west of Italy, in a beautiful landscape made of hills and surrounded by mountains.
After few years of freestyle, was inevitable for me to follow my nature and my desire for adventure and exploring, 2 words, those, that for me mean “Freeride” and “Big Mountain Riding”.
After few years spent in Gressoney (Monte Rosa) and Verbier, in 2006 I moved to Chamonix where I found my perfect playground.
Chamonix is a place where everything is allowed and everyone can push and search for his limits.
It’s a place where I feel completely free; free to dream, free to ride big lines, free to live the moment and share it with good friends.
Riding in the Mont Blanc Range I trained to pursue bigger dreams in the Himalayas, the Andes, the Caucasus, the Zagros and all those wild mountain ranges my eyes have laid on.
This website borns with the idea of sharing my passion with everyone…enjoy it!
