The history of the Cortina Mountain Guides

The history of the Cortina Mountain Guides began when Paul Grohmann, pioneering explorer of the Dolomites and founder of the Austrian Alpine Club, handed over the first Guidebook to Francesco Lacedelli in 1864.

Paul Grohmann, in fact, lived in Cortina from 1862 to 1865 and relied completely on local mountaineers to explore the Dolomites of Cortina and reach its inviolate peaks. Thus, together with valiant Ampezzo mountaineers, many feats were accomplished, including: the ascent of Mount Pelmo along the Grohmann ledge, the ascent of Tofana di Rozes and Mount Cristallo.

Meanwhile, the echo of Cortina’s beauty spread throughout Europe, thanks in part to the book published in 1877 by Paul Grohmann dedicated to the beauty of the Dolomites, entitled Wanderungen in den Dolomiten, officially kicking off tourism in the Ampezzo Valley.

The Cortina Mountain Guides have been carrying on a tradition ever since: to live and to exploring the area, in each wall or valley with passion, dedication and curiosity.
