Between the 28 to the 30th of November of 2018, in Schruns, Austria, the IFMGA (International Federation of Mountain Guides Associations) held its General Assembly. This institution, certifies and regulates the mountain guide profession of more than 25 country members worldwide, building reciprocity and job opportunities all throughout the world. The Haus des Gastes was the “base camp” for these days, where several board meetings and technical and political workshops took place.
During this three day event, besides the members meetings, as is it a tradition, the IFMGA Climbing Cup was held in which several members participated joining local and international guides. At the same time, various CPD programs for mountain guides also where developed, as part of the plan to have not only the delegates joining the meeting in Schruns but also many mountain guides from around the world, transforming this event in an social international meeting for mountain guides.
