Aosta Valley Guided Backcountry Skiing Trips

We had a great weekend skiing with Elis close to Valgrisenche. We stayed in a really nice mountain hotel from which lots of tours were accessible. Food and welcome was great. Elis is a great guide, kind and always cheerful, he makes sure you feel safe and have a great tour. Sun was out, snow wasn't amazing but then you're in Italy so ambiance makes up for it. Highly recommended!

La Vallée Blanche Guided Ski Tour

Our guide Paulo (PeaksHunter Guides) was absolutely brilliant. Highly professional throughout the day (especially when he rescued one of our party's snow boards out of a crevasse) and very knowledgeable about the area, but just as importantly a really pleasant and positive person. We had a thoroughly enjoyable trip. Thank you!

La Vallée Blanche Guided Ski Tour

This was, hands down, one of the coolest and most difficult outdoor experiences I have ever had. It was visually stunning. The ancient mountains that surround you on the Vallee Blanche are absolutely breathtaking, but there is good reason to be cautious. Do not ride the Vallee Blanche without a dedicated and experienced guide. You must be in very good physical condition to take this trip on a snowboard- skiing is a bit easier because you can traverse flat land better. You must be able to handle rugged terrain, and have pinpoint accuracy to cross ice bridges between crevices. Altitude, deep snow, unexpected weather and massive crevices are just a few serious hazards that require true alpine expertise. Our guide, Paulo, and his team were incredible. They were knowledgeable, friendly, and their communication skills were impeccable. The day that we were suppose to ride the valley turned out to be dangerously cold and windy but our guide was on top of the weather the entire time. We changed our original go-date to another one with safer conditions. As someone with a little bit of climbing experience, I truly appreciated our guides priority on safety & weather conditions; trust me, you wouldn’t want to be on Europe’s highest summit in the middle of a storm. We wound up going the next day after the storm. The powder was so deep that it was impassable on a snowboard at some points. The ski poles that we rented to traverse flat land, sunk all the way down into the powder, and there was no resistance to push yourself forward. On several occasions, our guide had to attach a rope to my harness and pull me out of a powder-jam. Paulo guided us safely down the mountain, taking breaks to rest and for water and food. At the bottom, we grabbed a few beers and nothing ever tasted so good. Hire these guys, you will be thankful that you did!!!

We had a fantastic day with Elis doing ski touring in the Aosta Valley. He was easy-going, yet very professional, and had a good knowledge of the area. He made safe route choices on a day with considerable avalanche risk and shared some nice tips and tricks along the way. He was able to communicate well in both Italian, French and English. We would not hesitate with using him for future trips

Aosta Valley Guided Backcountry Skiing Trips

We had a very exciting trip in Valle d’Aosta with Elis. A first day of free-riding for warming up, followed by three days of ski-touring in the beautiful valleys between Courmayeur and Aosta… Being also in contact with other guides, Elis has been able to find the best spots considering the changing weather and the quality of the snow. He is always keen to share his knowledge of the mountain and of the Valle d’Aosta’s back-country, where he grew up. Also therefore, we had a lot of pleasure in sharing with him well deserved meals at very nice places he would recommend… I would highly recommend him for discovering this region.

Aosta Valley Guided Backcountry Skiing Trips

Val d'Aoste is such a fantastic destination for skitouring. Overlooked by many, it offers stunning valleys to explore as you pass one charming village after another up a mountain road. Elis was the perfect guide to explore his native backcountry: deep local knowledge allows him to make the best of any weather and snow conditions - and book the best table for a well-deserved recovery and some fine Italian pasta. He's a super nice, enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide I would highly recommend

Aosta Valley Guided Backcountry Skiing Trips

Elis took us to various places around Aosta for four days. We had varying weather conditions and he was able to navigate those and get us to great snow every day even though there hadn't been a snow fall in 10 days. The routes were adjusted to the team's abilities and he took good care of us and the motivation of the troops, in particular in light of my fear of heights. Given his excellent knowledge of the region, Elis was spot on in his choices of places in terms of scenery, wilderness and isolation from any nuisance. He is also a fantastic companion with whom we enjoyed endless meals, espresso's and drinks. I'd highly recommend him.

La Vallée Blanche Guided Ski Tour

We spent a half day with Elis on the Vallée Blanche (from Courmayeur to Chamonix) where he guided us for a wonderful tour. I recommend Elis who was very keen on making us discover the breathtaking environment of La Vallée du Mont Blanc. Nice plus: Elis is taking pictures and send them to you afterwards.

La Vallée Blanche Guided Ski Tour

Superbe échappée aux pieds du Mont Blanc. Nous sommes partis du côté italien, ce qui évite la traversée d'une arête un peu périlleuse. Il fait du moins s'organiser pour le trajet jusqu'au départ de la cabine (sensationnelle) et le retour depuis Chamonix. Elis nous a guidé avec beaucoup de prudence et d'attention sur cette jolie balade. Nous avons été gâté par la météo qui nous a offert de faire une visite guidée avec Elis sur l'histoire de l'alpinisme de la région et découvrir la topographie des lieux. Magique !

Ski touring and freeride in Chamonix

De magnifiques journées, parfaitement organisées par Romain. Une parfaite connaissance des massifs de Chamonix pour trouver des itinéraires originaux, adaptés aux participants. Un vrai talent pour trouver les belles pentes et la bonne neige. Après la très belle expérience Alpinisme avec Romain quelques mois auparavant (Triangle du Tacul ), de nouveaux moments mémorables en ski free ride sur le versant italien et français de l'aiguille du midi et du Mont Blanc.

Heliskiing in Courmayeur is just amazing. The sceneries were stunning, the snow was perfect, we were along in the middle of nowhere. Organisation was impeccable, with Ode taking care of us right from the beginning. We did not wait at all and helicopter picked us up immediately for the first ride. Alessandro the pilot was super kind and helpful. We did two drops on two neighboring glaciers, 5 minutes helicopter ride. Only thing is that the downhill could have been longer, but that is due to the fact that wind conditions were extreme and hence only limited choice of dropping areas. I highly recommend this trip!
