A member of the Swiss Alpine Club (SAC), Nils comes from a strong mountaineering lineage. His father founded the Mountaineering School of Meiringen, and one of his three sons, Yannick, competes as a competition ice climber.

He holds a degree in Tourism and Travel Management from the University of St Gallen and possesses vast experience from his time working in an international environment for tourism associations and in the organisation and delivery of sport events, principally mountain-based ones.
