After more than 10 years in the fast-paced fashion business, Tilman decided that it was time for a change and founded awayfromital. Tilman is in charge of all awayfromitall marketing activities. Besides that, it is his passion to constantly develop and set-up ever new, unexpected experiences and events, that aim at re-defining the word "mountain experience". When ever he can, he loves joining his guests out there, even if it is only for a couple of hours.
Mountains are his passion. Frank started his career being a licensed UIAGM/IGMGA mountain guide and the Aosta Valley has become his home of choice over the last 8 years. Today, Frank is a partner at awayfromitall. Being an occasional desk person cannot be avoided in his life, but he much prefers being out there on the mountains with his guests. We like to keep it that way!

Partner and Sommeliere
Elisabetta is our 2C-expert. 2 C? Culture and Culinary experiences! She knows the Roman and medieval art of the valley and its architecture inside out. But of course that was not enough for Elisabetta: Her passion for the extraordinary wines and cheeses of the surrounding areas made her become a master sommeliere and fromagiere. She is able to open doors to off-the-mountain places and experiences, that usually remain off-limit to the public.
Rudi lives at the Eastern edge of the Aosta valley. His Alpine career is quite impressive, making him head of mountain guide education in the Aosta valley and a national mountain rescue instructor. When he is not busy with all that, he is taking our guests through the Twin Peak area. Apart from that he has a weakness for extreme rock- and ice climbing.
Since his childhood days, mountains always had a very special place in Francesco’s heart, even though he was not from Aosta. His carrier started as a temp for dish-washing on a refugio, but soon his passion made him train to become a licensed mountain-guide. In his spare time you will most likely find him climbing one of the most challenging peaks surrounding Courmayeur.
