Highlights

 
     

    Courmayeur, in the Aosta Valley, is a perfect starting point for your first experience in ski touring. This corner of the Alps in northwestern Italy has countless options for all ski levels, which is why I planned a 1-day intro to ski touring here. 

    We can decide the exact destination of the trip together and taking into account your skiing level, but the starting point will be charming Courmayeur.

    Even though you do not need to have any prior experience ski touring, you do need to be in good physical shape and have some off-piste ski experience. It is extremely important to initiate in ski touring with a certified mountain guide, as in this way you will learn the techniques and progress in all safety. It is the ideal way to prepare you for further ski touring adventures, whether you continue with a guide or independently.

    During the day, we will cover the basics of ski touring, including how to use ski bindings and sealskins, avalanche awareness, some route planning and more. And of course, we will actually go ski touring!

    Don’t hesitate to send me a request if you are interested in this intro to ski touring! It will be my pleasure to teach you the basics and guide you on your first day practising this wonderful discipline. And after you have gained more experience, we can do the mythical Haute Route from Chamonix to Zermatt!

    What People are Saying about Peaks Hunter Mountain Guide Team

     

    I want to post my review on Peaks Hunter Mountain Guides ( see below).I climbed Mont Blanc in September 2019 with Peak Hunter Mountain Guides. The service I received was excellent. They provided me with all the information I requested and more. Scheduling was clear and everything went as it was planned. My guide, Luigi Gagliardi, is a highly skilled professional. He did a great job taking me to the summit, providing me with all instructions and taking a great care of me. I learnt a lot from him. He is also a great person.

    We were guided by PeaksHunter in a Gran Paradiso ascent, and it was memorable! We just would like to thank Silvia and Elis for the wonderful trip we\'ve experienced with their guidance. The communication and organization before and during the trip was clear and detailed. We felt completely supported and safe accompanied by Silvia and Elis. Thanks for clarify all our questions and help us very kindly mainly considering our lack of experience in trips like that. At supermarket, the ride to the park, the lunch before we start, during the trail, at meals in the mountain, at all these moments we had great company and support. This was our first ascent in this altitude and Silvia and Elis demonstrated be professionals very experienced and high skilled. We appreciate the way they enjoy the nature in a respectful and safe manner. They were attentive to the minor details regarding our security and also our experience. We are lucky to have had you as our guides. The best photo we took it is not enough to express how good is the feeling to be at this point in the mountains and appreciate pure nature. We saw landscapes completely new for our eyes in a memorable experience. Silvia and Elis, thank you very much. We really appreciate our time in Gran Paradiso and we feel lucky to be guided by you.
