I have been interested in skiing, climbing and mounteineering since my high school study.
In 1990 I have begun my activity in mountains as a speleo-alpinist and latter (1992) as a climber and skimountaineer. In the year 1993 I descended at the bottom of the deepest cave of Poland - the Jaskinia Wielka Sniezna cave (depth 750 m, length 20 km).I have climbed a number mountaineering and ski descent in the Tatra Mountains, as well as in the Alps. Recently I have addicted myself to extreme skiing in the Vysoke Tatry Mountains and in the Alps. In May 2003 I have skied the Pallavicini couloir in the North Face of the Grossglockner.
In March 2006 I injured in a big avalanche (Bulgaria - Rila). However I started a new ski and climbing season in January 2008.
