National Union of Mountain Guides
Alongside the guides, Lagoped is proud to be the official partner of the National Union of High Mountain Guides.
“I have deep admiration and immense respect for these mountain professionals who guide on the high altitude paths and show the way for change. I thank the SNGM for choosing Lagoped as a technical partner, it is an honor for our young company to share together the desire to put Nature back at the heart of humanity. We are fully united around mountain values: commitment, freedom and sharing." Christophe Cordonnier - co-founder of Lagoped.
Dorian Labaeye, president of the SNGM, tells us a little more:
“The Guide is by definition all day in the great outdoors. He must have blind confidence in his equipment. Like crampons or ice axes, clothing must be technical; they participate in the experiences, in the success of each summit, of each descent. They protect us. Today, we must adapt to the climate changes which impact our activity and this partnership is completely in line with our awareness-raising actions put in place. Favoring a young brand that acts for more environmental respect is a necessity for us.
With Lagoped, we rediscover the mountain values that drive us and that gave us the desire to pursue this profession. The SNGM is committed to the preservation of the territories in which the guides operate and whose rapid changes we see every day on the ground. Through our clothing, we are happy to carry our values and transmit them to our customers. »
