Chamonix-Zermatt Haute Route Ski Tour

Due to bad weather conditions, we could not do the Haute Route. Instead, the guide proposed an alternative route in Gran Paradiso

Chamonix-Zermatt Haute Route Ski Tour

Amazing trip, thoroughly enjoyed myself. Unfortunately, the Haute Route was cancelled due to incline weather, a safe decision by the guides, but they were able to create a new tour on the fly which was still spectacular. The Guides were very friendly and helpful, were able to pick me up from town as i didn't have a car, and transport me to the starting location. Both Elis and Claudio were very hospitable, knowledgable and friendly. Highly recommend PeakHunters for any guided needs!

The Haute Route, 7-day Ski tour from Chamonix to Zermatt

Kyriakos Rossidis is a fantastic touring and skiing guide. Our safety and well-being was his top concern. Extremely competent and helpful with equipment and all arrangements with huts, etc. Also great company — low-key, friendly, sense of humor. Could not ask for a better guide.

Grand Saint Bernard pass ski touring

I had really great days on my Splitboard trip with Elis and Ettore. Very good guiding- always open for the needs and wishes of their guests. We successfully did several peaks and the descends were premium!❄️😎🤩

Grand Saint Bernard pass ski touring

We were very happy about everything. The only thing a bit annoying was the fact that the price wasn't clear (or maybe I should have written all termes and conditions?) I have no problem with the price in itself, I just would have loved to know it clearly so that I could explain it to the team in advance. It did spoiled a bit my holidays to think about money, would have preferred to think about it only before or after...Thanks Arthur

Heliskiing Trip in Zermatt

We were group of 3 with Herbert to the Monte Rosa drop off location. Our group has done lots of heli-skiing, cat skiing, and hiked routes. What we look for in guides is 1) safety 2) matching route to technical ability 3) advice in complex sections 4) having a personality and making the day fun. On safety: Herbert did a good safety briefing and told us where to position ourselves relative to his tracks, that was the extent of his safety. One of our group members fell part-way into a crevasse and was dangling on the ice wall, and he leisurely pulled out his rope to throw it down even after being told there was a very far drop. He routinely skiied out-of-sight of the entire group even in more dangerous sections. If someone had fallen through again, there was no rescuing them as he was the only one with the safety gear. On matching the route the technical ability of the group he did fine, the only part that was an issue was the very long flat ski out (he warned us about this, so we knew it ahead of time, I wouldn't do this route again because of this). On advice/tips for complex routes, he had nothing to offer, and was annoyed when you asked him questions, the only thing he said was "lean forward on your skiis", and didn't try to help anyone who had challenges. On the last part, personality, this was the worst. He was extremely annoyed that he had to help the person out of the crevasse, and even more annoyed that a snowboarder in our group was slower in the flat section. He complained to other ski guides that passed by that he was late for his lunch. When we stopped to break and took pictures he asked us to stop wasting time with taking our phones out. When we asked him if we should bring water (for a 5 hour ski) he said it's no necessary, which was crazy. Overall, it really put a damper on the entire experience, we spent a lot of money and came from Canada to experience this, and he nearly ruined it. He's a really good technical skiier, but has no patience nor does he put an ounce of effort in to making it fun or making people feel safe.

Private Heliski in Verbier with a guide

Plus de temps doit être consacré à la familiarisation de l'équipement qu'on portait dans nos sacs, pelle, sonde. Quoi faire si le guide est emporté par une avalanche, une deuxième radio devrait être porté par un des clients, comment utiliser les émetteurs de détresse lors d'une recherche.

Chamonix-Zermatt Haute Route Ski Tour

Claudio is an excellent guide who takes safety seriously. He is extremely knowledgeable and was able to judge our capabilities and pace our trips perfectly. We hired Claudio for a small group trip on two occasions in 2018 and 2019 and will go with him again in 2021 if we can. Our attempts at the Haute Route both failed after 4-5 days due to bad weather, but sooner or later we will complete it!

My wife and I had an incredible day with Herbert in Zermatt. Our guide did an excellent job of adjusting the skiing to fit our ability. Would not hesitate to highly recommend Herbert.....thank you for an epic memory.

Les Portes du Soleil Guided Freeride Skiing

We had booked Ben for a single day and weather did not play nice: rain in the valley, snowfall and high winds on the summits. Hence, we were locked down to a single slope. Ben still made this an awesome day with lots of off-piste dives wherever possible, some avalanche training in between and good advice and powder exercises as he's simply an excellent skier. On top of that he is a great person and also available as guide in Chamonix and 4Vallee. Full recommendation!

Les Portes du Soleil Guided Freeride Skiing

Benjamin, jeune guide professionnel, confirme avec excellence que la valeur n’attend pas le nombre des années ! Nous avons pu, en sa discrète compagnie,  découvrir en toute sécurité une approche inédite et respectueuse de la montagne dans des randonnées en peau de phoque. Je me réjouis déjà de réitérer cette expérience l’année prochaine, si possible encore  avec le même guide, et avec même un degré de difficulté supérieur…

Les Portes du Soleil Guided Freeride Skiing

Malgré des conditions de neige médiocres notre guide Benjamin nous a permis de passer deux journées fantastiques à la découverte de sites vierges dans les Portes du Soleil.  La rando en peau de phoque fut pour nous une grande première à renouveler très rapidement.  Admirer la montagne avec un guide de qualité quoi de plus excitant dans la vie !!

Les Portes du Soleil Guided Freeride Skiing

Nous sommes partis 2 jours avec Benjamin. C’était fantastique de découvrir une autre façon de faire du ski. Benjamin est un gars super sympa et sécurisant. On a passé deux belles journées avec lui. Un regret : Que l’on ne découvre qu’à 54 balais la randonnée à ski. Qui sait !! On prendra peut-être goût à l’alpinisme à 70 ans. Merci à Explore-Share.com de nous avoir présenté Benjamin. Il est sûrement à conseiller à d’autres candidats.

Bonjour Anne-Françoise, La sortie de samedi dernier m’a entièrement ravi : excellente ambiance, baptême de l’air paisible, parcours de toute beauté sous l’œil attentif et encourageant de Peter, bref un grand moment de ski, en prime sous un ciel parfaitement dégagé ! Bravo pour l’organisation, en ce compris la navette de retour et la livraison sur place des packs de sécurité. Merci pour tout et….à la prochaine !!!

Backcountry skiing with a guide in Verbier

Hi Gilbert, I wanted to drop you and Cédric a thank you note. You have had a crazy patience with all my complicated wishes and you really helped making it happen. I really appreciated you help and it was a super great experience, something I will not forget. We felt extremely comfortable with your guidance and hopefully there will be a chance to go on another tour in the future. I am now officially addicted to the deep snow experience J. If you need a client statement from you on your website or anything, just let me know. Happy to do so. I can also post something on social media…. Cheers and thanks again!

Les Portes du Soleil Guided Freeride Skiing

Nous avons passé une excellente journée avec Benjamin sur le domaine des Portes du Soleil. Malgré des conditions d'enneigement difficiles, il est parvenu à nous trouver de belles descentes. Très pro et à l'écoute de nos envies, Benjamin nous a fait découvrir des recoins cachés dont il a le secret. De plus, ses conseils techniques en pente raide ont été très utiles. Entre des combes bien préservées, de la peau de phoque et une Via Ferrata avec les skis sur le dos, la journée a été remplie d'émotions. Je le recommande vivement !

Trient private guided heliski day

Some times u meet people you call "mentors" in your work, or in your life. Very proud of the book of my friend and free-ride instructor for the last 8 years! In the book marked the steepest couloir I ever ride in my life (couloir d'Arpette). Thank you Gilbert

Les Portes du Soleil Guided Freeride Skiing

Malgré le peu de neige et une station de Chamonix bien peuplée, Benjamin a réussi a nous trouver de chouettes itinéraires de rando, a l'écart des foules et au milieu d'une nature splendide. Ses bons conseils nous ont aussi été d'une grande aide lors de montées en peaux de phoques plus techniques. Très sympathique et posé, Ben est un guide de montagne que nous recommandons vivement! Harald et Gaspard
