Shams comes straight from the Grenoble region and developed a passion for mountain sports at an early age, thanks to the hikes he took with his father. After graduating as an osteopath, he decided to follow his passion and qualified as an aspiring mountain guide in 2015.
His second passion is travelling. Whether he's skiing in Lebanon, mountaineering in China or bike-skiing in Mongolia, Shams is a veritable guide-adventurer, with one expedition after another. A great fan of ski touring, Shams has written a book on the most beautiful unguarded refuges from Mont Blanc to the Mediterranean.
