Pablo Santiago Mata
Certified mountain guide member of the AEGM (Spanish Association of Mountain Guides) and computer engineer.
Born in 1982, at the young age of three I had my first contact with the mountains when my family took me skiing at the ski resort near my home, Alto Campoo.
Ever since then, I practiced consistently, developing an interest in climbing, skiing, trekking, learning and practising all modes. I had always felt a special curiosity and attraction for alpinism and winter mountaineering and from that day on up until today, I enjoy the continuous learning process, the everyday difficulties, climbing up some of the most emblematic mountains of Spain and abroad (France, Italy, Switzerland, Norway, USA, Morocco, Patagonia…)
After a few years working as a computer engineer where I felt that every day at office was “a wasted day” in my life, I decided to leave everything and go for what really made me happy, to continue my mountain guide education and to head into the direction where I really wanted to be rather than just dreaming about it, looking at the the pictures of my computer wallpaper. I wanted everyday to count and being able to share and transmit everything that it means.
