All levels


* Feel the thrill of ice climbing in a breathtaking location.

* Participate in a custom-made trip for you.

* Enjoy the stunning Chamonix.


Come with me to enjoy a thrilling ice climbing adventure! This fun and exciting activity is perfect for lovers of rock climbing that don’t want to let the winter ruin their time outdoors. And the Chamonix Valley, France is a true paradise for all outdoor activities.

The Chamonix Valley is full of waterfalls that turn into stunning ice climbing spots during the winter. Especially the area close to Cogne Valley, Italy, a true waterfall Mecca. There’s tons of options to choose from for all ice climbing levels, and a variety of forms including columns, bosses, jellyfish, curtains, and free-standing. And, if you decide to stay for more than one day, there are many waterfalls to discover each day.

Ice climbing is an exciting sport but it needs to be taken seriously. It is very important that you follow the correct safety measures. Ice climbing is also my specialty and favorite sport. I’ll make sure to assess the safety of the places we choose before the trip and guide you on the way. 

Send your request and let me organize this wonderful trip just for you! Depending on your goals, skills and time available, I’ll make sure to plan the best itinerary possible.

Mountain Guide

Mountains are an important part of my life. All my interests in life are somehow connected with mountains. I have been working with people in the mountains since 2013. From the very beginning as a mountaineering and downhill skiing instructor, and since 2020 as a licensed mountain guide. I work on mountaineering, freeride and ski tourism programs. I live in Chamonix, and I work in different mountain regions, depending on the season.

What people are saying about Maksim



My name is Iain Court and I am currently residing in Singapore where sadly there is a real lack of mountains or alpine climbing opportunities. Having spent the last 15 years focused on my family I was looking for an opportunity to get off the beaten path and do some alpine climbing. Being a novice and not having done anything like this for so long, my friend and I engaged Maksim as our guide for 2 weeks in Ala Archa, Kyrgzstan in August 2023. We left it up to Maksim to assess our skill level and capabilities and then tailor us a program for the 2 weeks. Maksim nailed it - he was able to very quickly assess our fitness, endurance and skills and adjust the difficulty accordingly. We had an incredible 2 weeks of rock climbing - trad & sport, alpine climbing, ice climbing and did 6 very memorable technical peaks. Maksim pitched it perfectly so that we were learning and developing in a safe and fun way but also still able to push ourselves under his supervision. Maksim is also a great guy and a lot of fun. We had many evenings in our mountain hut sharing stories over dinner and a couple of drinks. I will stay in touch with Maksim and I plan on doing another trip - potentially also with my kids in the future. I would highly recommend Maksim as a mountain guide.



I spent 10 days in the Ala Archa Mountains in Kyrgyzstan with Maksim, to summarise, it was incredible. Maksim is a very professional guide, he tailored the trip to my wants and needs, and made sure I got everything I wanted from the trip. I felt very safe climbing with Maksim and we did some amazing summits together. Would highly recommend doing this trip if you’re looking at it! Thanks again Maksim
