Porta Nera ski touring trip in Cervinia

Loved the day out, the guide (Nicholas) was knowledgeable and we felt very safe in his hands. It was our first time ski touring and overall it was a superb experience. We will certainly be doing more in the future! The communication was also excellent. Silvia was in contact with us through email and WhatsApp and it was very easy to ask questions.

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!

Monte Rosa, guided freeride ski

I just wanted to thank you very much for all the help in the difficult snow conditions.  The primary aim of teaching Digby and reminding me of avalanche protocols and about skinning have been fully achieved.  You made it all fund, clear and precise. Too bad we had poor conditions, but we still found some reasonable snow and mashed an awesome couloir, so we did really well considering. So thank you very much and only sorry that we could not make full use of you for the full five days.

Freeride skiing at Marmolada, Dolomites

We had a great day skiing off piste with Etienne on Marmolada. He is a superb off piste mountain guide and having grown up skiing on the mountain with his father who is also a mountain guide, he has a vast knowledge of the Mountain and the conditions, together with the local history. The communication and advice in advance of the trip was also excellent, particularly regarding the best places in the area to hire skis and avalanche equipment. In summary, I have no hesitation in recommending Gauthier and Etienne - we had a superb day and would very highly recommend this trip.

We had a fantastic day with Alesandro in La Thuile. It had not snowed much for over 3 weeks, so he recommended that we go Ski Touring, and we managed to find fresh tracks. Could not have gone better!

Mondeval Valley, Dolomites, Guided Splitboarding

The tour was amazing, the place is absolutely beautiful and Enrico was a great guide! The snow conditions were not the best (one cannot control the weather!) but Enrico guided us well through it and gave a lot of important tips on how to skin up on varying conditions, and always alerted of of what to expect ahead. He was very patient with our relatively slow pace and we still managed to do a lot in the day we had! I can definetly recomend this tour for those who are starting in splitboarding/skitouring - the right level of challenge without beeing too hard! And Enrico is a great guide, professional, patient and also a fun person to be around and chat! I hope to make another tour or maybe climb with him on the next time I'm in the Dolomites!

Our guide was Pietro and not marco like we initially thought. Pietro was awesome, it is all about his clients and most importantly safety. We did two runs and it was an incredible experience. Guide is a must to explore the hidden spots because Monterosa ski is massive.

Aosta Valley Guided Backcountry Skiing Trips

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

Freeride skiing at Marmolada, Dolomites

We chose Etienne because of his unusual qualities of being a qualified as a ski instructor as well as an IFMGA mountain guide, and we were not disappointed. The combination of his knowledge, experience and friendly enthusiasm enabled us to enjoy a variety of conditions in the Dolomites while improving our technique through fun and innovative approaches. I would have no doubt about hiring Etienne again and highly recommend him as an instructor and/or a guide.

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.

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.
