What people are saying about Backcountry Skiing | Chamonix-Mont-Blanc


Kyros was a great guide and did a wonderful job over two days. I highly recommend him and think he's a great guide.



Kyros was excellent and professional! I had some delays getting my equipment in the morning, and he was more than flexible and capable of making sure I got what I needed. I would recommend him to anyone.



We very much appreciated Kyros’ professionalism and knowledge of the area. We’re fairly adept skiers but were not all that familiar with the mountaineering gear or protocol - Kyros was very thorough with his directions and making sure we were all safe. I had a 12 and 13 year old with me and he gave me a lot of confidence with his skills without being patronizing. ( Plus...he found us the goods!) We all had a great day. Happy to recommend him for or offer other intel.


Kyriakos was awesome! Very knowledgeable but didn’t push or feel like a lesson. If we asked a question he’d answer but we never felt like he was trying to teach. I was extremely happy with how we saw every other “group” going down more or less the same route and he brought us over to a spot that was untouched.



My Son and I we're absolutely delighted with our day out skiing the Vallee Blanche. Our guide Kyriakos was friendly, helpful and extremely professional. We really felt that we were being looked after by one of the best. Kyriakos also shared his knowledge of the route, the mountains and he even gave us some tips to improve our skiing. An absolutely fantastic experience that we will never forget.
