About Jany:

Although I have a master's degree in Social Politics and Social Work I have been always attracted to the mountains and rocks and the only way how to spend more time in this environment doing what I love was to turn my passion into a job. This is the base idea and motivation for setting up Rockbusters and Snowbusters. Of course, sharing all my experiences and helping people to climb BETTER, HARDER & MORE, and actually being part of their progress stands right next to it.

I have been guiding and coaching climbing and skiing since I was 20 years old more than 20 years. There have been many people who went through my hands and I believe all of them become better skiers or climbers, some both. Of course, not all of them love my style but with most of them, we have become friends.

If you let me expect nothing less than to be pushed to your personal physical and mental limits as it is my personal goal to find them and help you to destroy them. The way may be a bit painful and frustrating but with my technical and mental coaching skills, no goal is hanging too high!
