Two SCARPA team members earn IFMGA climbing and skiing certification

Nov. 22nd 2010

Last week, two of SCARPA’s team members received the highest recognition one can achieve in the world of mountain guides – they were certified in rock, alpine and snow by the International Federation of Mountain Guides Associations.

Huge congrats to both Caroline George and Angela Hawse, shown in this photo receiving their IFMGA pins last week from Herman Biner, President of the IFMGA.

Achieving certification at this level is daunting and committing, but it speaks to their love of the mountains and of mountain sports. As its says on the American Mountain Guides Association (AMGA is the U.S. counterpart) list of folks who have received this certification, these people “can guide on any climbing and skiing terrain without limitation.”

That pretty much says it all.
