Dive deep into the world of Vuarnet’s Fellowship Alpine Emissary Program through A Fellow’s Tale: Mountain Stories, a collection of alpine vignettes.
« It has always been considered that the mountains are the cathedrals of the earth. We have an almost divine image of what the Earth gives us. »
Anselme Baud, alpinist and pioneer of extreme skiing, born in Morzine in 1948, defined his exploits with one motto: "All that's white can be skied down". Anselme Baud has the mountains in his family. His father, Jacques Baud, developed Avoriaz, and his father-in-law, James Couttet, was a downhill world champion. An instructor at the legendary Ecole Nationale de Ski et d’Alpinisme, he has trained guides in France, Nepal and Bolivia. Anselme has skied many mythical peaks and led his clients across every continent.
A Fellow’s Tale: Mountain Stories is a collection of vignettes from the Vuarnet Fellowship Alpine Emissary Program. Vuarnet Fellows are relentless explorers and athletes, just as Vuarnet is relentless in our dedication to craftsmanship and quality protection. The Fellowship is an inclusive space that fosters an extraordinary sense of community in celebration of our inherent quest to commune with the mountains. A Fellow’s Tale explores the human side of experience, the desire to transcend ourselves and our Fellows’ essential need to pursue their particular paths in life.
