Boris Textor was born and raised in the Netherlands and is now living in Innsbruck working as a fully certified IFMGA Mountain Guide. At the age of 13, Boris’ sports teacher introduced him to sport climbing, and that is when his passion for the outdoors first began. From sport climbing, he developed to an all-round alpinist and skier. These became his new passions and ever since, Boris combined mountaineering and skiing. He did the Royal Traverse from the Mount Blanc on skis. He also opened a new steep line in New Zealand Couloir Ademlos by Mount Cook Aera. Furthermore, he travelled to Iran, Japan, Kazachstan, Lebanon and Morocco. In the Alps, Boris skied various North faces, e.g. at Mönch, Lenzspitze, Presanella, Cima Tosa, Taschach, Petersenspitze and many more.
Boris’ favourite Khroma pick:
“I love the Khroma Freeride GTX Mitts! I always have trouble with finding the right gloves, but I was flabbergasted as I first tried this one.”
