Marko Prezelj's Ambassador Profile

IAN PARNELL
Marko Prezelj
Alpine Climbing Ambassador

Hometown

Kamnik, Slovenia

Resides

Križ, Slovenia
Within a month, Marko completed his chemical engineering study at the Ljubljana University, married his wife, Katja, and became a father. That whirlwind of events only confirmed what Marko had learned over the years as an alpine climber: His limits were all in his head. Marko feels drawn to mountains because the outcome of every day is a mystery.
