We are Cristina and Marino, mountain professionals

With Mountainstudio20, we want to share our passion for biking with you

The idea of ​​creating a job from a great passion for the mountains began to take shape in 2020. Together we shared many adventures and trips in the mountains both in summer and winter, on rock, on snow and on two wheels.

United by this great passion for sport and the mountains, in 2020, we decided to get involved by creating MountainStudio20, a company aimed at offering a mountain bike guide service with daily mtb tours in the Dolomite  Mountains.

Today, a few years after its birth, we continue to engage in this project with passion and dedication. Searching for new mtb tours, new destinations to explore and new ideas to propose creates great opportunities and thanks to this our mtb tours take place in the most spectaluar area of the Dolomites.

The Mountain Bike Guide is a professional capable of knowing and making the most of mountain biking and in general the bicycle in all its aspects, with excellent knowledge of the territory, its culture and its hospitality: a sportsman capable to lead groups of people in complete safety. The Guide can operate, without limits and restrictions, throughout Italy, Europe and the rest of the world. The professional recognition (law n.4 of 14 January 2013 of the Ministry of Economic Development) makes the Mountain Bike Guide one of the main protagonists of cycle tourism and cycle excursions, in particular, but not exclusively, in the off-road discipline.


AMM is an Italian certification for “Accompagnatore di Media Montagna” (i.e., Mountain Leader). AMM guides are part of the professional register of the Italian alpine guides CONAGAI. Mountain leaders can guide clients in activities such as: Hiking Trekking Snowshoeing

An International Mountain Leader (IML) is a person that has been trained and assessed against the challenging requirements of UIMLA. These requirements are specified in a document called “A common platform standard” (UIMLA Standard).

The IML qualification lets the holder lead groups in different mountains all over the world, where the skills and equipment of alpinism are not required. IMLs cannot provide tours on glaciers and permanent snow, and where the planned use of a rope is necessary. However, IMLs can work with groups on high altitude treks as well as lead groups on snowshoes. IML’s, from every member country, have to maintain International Continuing Professional Development (ICPD) to ensure that members are kept up-to-date with the latest developments in mountain leadership.Only a qualified International Mountain Leader has the badge and  the carnet of The UIMLA organization

Mission and values

Passion and attention for the mountains and the territory, love for life in the open air and outdoor sports.

We know we are dealing with a “common good” and for this reason, we believe that the only real possibility is to create something that goes beyond tourism,

It’s about transmitting a lifestyle, sensitivity and attention toward the territory and nature, to understand its beauty and importance. The mountain is not just snow, cliffs, ridges, streams, lakes, paths, woods, and pastures.
The mountains are a way of living life. The mountain knows how to teach, transmit, and regenerate.

As the Tibetan philosopher Milarepa said, “In the deserted stony slopes of the mountains you will find a strange market: there you can exchange the vortex of life for boundless bliss.
