Introducing Pietro Simonetti

Pietro’s no stranger to performing extreme stunts to raise money for good causes. In 2001, he found himself standing on top of Aconcagua—at 23,000 feet, the highest mountain in the Western Hemisphere. In March of 2002, Pietro and four other Across the Atlas teammates set a Guinness World Record by skiing all 28 Colorado resorts in a frenetic 80 hours and 41 minutes. Pietro was one of two skiers on a 2003 Kilimanjaro expedition who made a descent down Kili’s Heim Glacier. In 2005 Pietro skied on both the snow and Sahara sand of Morocco.
