A ski athlete, Sebastian Beltrame Muschietti was born in Ushuaia, the southernmost city in the world! Skiing since he was 2 years old, Sebastian became a ski athlete competing for alpine world ski championships when he was 10.
At 18 he became a professional biathlon athlete (country cross skiing shooting a .22 rifle). Competing as biathlon professional athlete for 7 years, he won national and South American competitions. Sebastian participated in several world championships in many European countries including the Winter Olympic Games in Torino in 2006.
In 2007 he decided to retire from professional competitions to then focus on the guiding career. Sebastian worked on his rock, ice, and mixed climbing skills as well as guiding techniques to graduate as a mountain guide in 2011 at the Argentinean Mountaineering Guides Association (AAGM). He works as a professional mountain guide since then. Sebastian’s next mission is to become a UIAA Mountain Ski Guide.
