About the guide

IFMGA/UIAGM Guide from Sarre, Valle d'Aosta. I enjoy rock and ice, and climbed important routes in the massif of Mont Blanc and Monte Rosa.

When guiding customers I like to discover less known routes, looking for the pleasure of adventure, trying to share with my clients the great passion I have for the high mountains.

First time for us backcountry with guide. Nicolas really made the best of it despite difficult spring conditions with only little snow left on the slopes. He even found some powder for us. He is really nice company too. Booking was smooth too with fast responses from both admin and our guide Nicolas.

Nicolas was a skilled and knowledgeable guide. We were disappointed that there were not told beforehand that we had to pay for the transport up and down the mountain. We were given the impression these coats were included in the trip. Be prepared to pay 150 Euros more than the quoted price for the tram and train tickets.
