Jessy took good care of us. He contacted us in good time before our actual day. Super nice and skilled. We like to ski long days and so did Jessy. If we come back we will definetly contact Jessy again.

An amazing few days of skiing, ski touring and glacier exploring with Jessy. Jessy is a true professional, always alert, safety conscious and tailoring his trips to the ability of his clients - making for a great, memorable experience. (Photos included!). I have been ski-touring with guides for 16 years and would definitely choose Jessy again and recommend him to others.

Nous avons passé un bon moment avec Jessy dans les Trois Vallées. Nous avons fait du ski hors-piste et malgré la météo difficile, il nous a trouvé de belles décentes. Il est sympa, dynamique, prudent et il aime bien les nouvelles technologies dans le domaine du ski.

Deux journées top au milieu des 3 Vallées. Très attentif, Jessy s\'adapte au niveau du groupe et choisit les bonnes pentes. Il nous a fait découvrir de nouveaux coins loin des pistes et cela en toute sécurité. Merci Jessy, on s\'est éclaté et on a bien rigolé. Au fait, tes photos sont magnifiques.
