Alpenwild guide Sophie Nolan epitomizes versatility. As an Alpenwild guide in the summer you’ll find her leading in the Bernese Oberland, the Chamonix-Zermatt Haute Route, and the Tour du Mont Blanc. Then in the winter she’s in Finland—not just relaxing by the sauna—but she’s a sled dog musher on arctic expeditions.
But her coworkers and guests had no idea what a gifted graphic designer Sophie is. They’ll soon find out when Alpenwild introduces its 2019 TMB shirt—that’s right—the shirt every guided guest on the TMB will be wearing as they circumnavigate the highest peak in the Alps.
Sophie’s designs are fun and engaging. They spark questions and generate thought. For example, her TMB design features a circular arrow which loops Mont Blanc in a counter-clockwise direction. For anyone who has hiked the TMB, they know that symbolizes trekking around the Mont Blanc on a counter-clockwise route. The design also features the three countries you’ll experience on the TMB—France, Italy, and Switzerland.
So when you receive your TMB shirt one of this summer’s TMB trips, know that it’s a custom, limited edition design made with you in mind. And if you’re lucky enough to have Sophie Nolan as your guide, she might even sign it for you.
