We had a great time with Andrea! It’s quite cool to go in the mountains with someone your age. Andrea
is one of the youngest Italian guides but already has a lot of experience and you can tell it once up there. We felt very safe all the way, he took us to some really nice lines and we even enjoyed some powder. He was always adapting to the rhythm of the team. The views around Val d’Aoste are amazing and the great food and service in the huts made the trip very special. Andrea knows everyone so we even enjoyed special treatment… (that tiramisu was amazing…)We will come back! There is a lot more to discover around there.
Thomas de Dorlodot for Ski touring around Gran Paradiso
Le tour avec Andrea s’est très bien passé. Il est vraiment très sympa et détendu. Il adaptait bien les sorties
en fonction du niveau et de la forme groupe. C’était super de découvrir le Val d’Aoste avec lui car c’est sa région. On a donc pu en apprendre beaucoup au sujet du coin et il savait où aller chercher la bonne neige. Top recommandation merci ! Il nous a même invité chez lui en fin trip pour une pâte et un coup d’alcool d’Aravis. Du guide 6 étoiles, en somme 😉
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
We had a wonderful day with Elis in Courmayeur. Despite the bad weather and strong snow conditions, Elis bring us
freeriding during one day in the woods and found the perfect spots.Elis is a super enthusiastic, friendly and knowledgeable guide I would highly recommend for your upcoming trips in Courmayeur.
Andrea nous a guidé jusqu’à la pointe de la pierre surplombant Aoste. Nous avons tous été super satisfaits de ce
choix: le panorama sur les Alpes y est fantastique et Andrea nous a trouvé de la bonne neige malgré les conditions très sèches des jours précédents. En plus, Andrea a parfaitement géré les differences de niveau du groupe en donnant des bons conseils techniques. Pour finir, Andrea est très sympa et flexible et est un vrai passionné de sa région et de sa culture montagnarde. Merci a lui et a Explore-Share pour ce moment memorable!
Ces deux journées ont été incroyables! C’était génial ! Il y avait quelques différences de niveau au sein de notre groupe
(un skieur n’avait jamais mis de peaux avant ce trip) et Andrea s’est adapté au groupe. Hyper sympa, toujours à l’écoute, très pro..bref, je retournerai en montagne avec lui. D’autant plus qu’il connait ces vallées par coeur, ça se voit qu’il prend du plaisir à faire découvrir ce vrai coin de paradis. Un vrai ambassadeur du val d’Aoste! Il nous faisait rêver en nous expliquant les possibilités infinies de rando dans la région et j’ai déjà prévu de retourner explorer ces montagnes en sa compagnie.
Nous avons passé 4 jours en montagne à notre entière satisfaction et bénéficié des excellentes prestations d’Elis, guide que je
recommande sans réserve. La météo nous a perturbé le déroulement initial du tour mais des solutions de remplacement ont été trouvées. Avec mes salutations les meilleures. Raymond Jaquet
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.
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
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.
