Dani Arnold Pro Team Mountaineering

We had the biggest playground - the mountains - right outside our front door. Now I work in the mountains every day - a dream come true!"

DATE OF BIRTH February 22, 1984

RESIDENCE Bürglen (Switzerland)

WHAT GOT YOU INTO MOUNTAINEERING? I grew up in the mountains. Taking the cableway to get to school shaped my character and created this fascination for the mountains.
