Alexander RIML

Born in 1969 Alexander lives in Tumpen/Ötztal together with his wife Susanne and his three children.
Very soon his parents took him with them into the native mountains and he learned skiing at the age of five. This early confrontation with the different kinds of alpine sports certainly was the foundation for his future alpine education.
Today Alexander is a skilled and authorized raft-, canyoning, IVBV-canyoning-, mountain- and skiing guide and works as general authorized and certified court expert for alpinism, canyoning, mountain rescue, avalanche qualification and avalanche accidents for the domestic courts. Because of these professional qualifications he is often invited as instructor and teacher for the Tyrolean Mountain Rescue and the Mountain Guide Association. Since many years he organizes the Tyrolean canyoning education with great success.
In the 90ies Alexander was infected with the “canyoning-virus“ by his mountain guide friend Walter Wille during a guided trip with guests. Since then he has always been travelling to different countries and did some first descents with his friends from the adidas canyoning team. Today he offers nice experiences of nature in different alpine disciplines to his guests with his small company activsport alpin - the mountainguides for you. In his opinion it is the best to see this glitter in the eyes of a guest, after reaching his personal goal.
As Alexander is travelling in different areas and always is dependent on local information, he dreamed about creating a canyoning guide for Tyrol for a long time, to show the sports diversity in Tyrol and to offer an ideal source of information for others.
