Description

Would you like to enjoy an amazing ski touring experience in the Alps? Then join me in Chamonix-Mont Blanc for one or several days and let me show you the way!

Chamonix-Mont-Blanc, commonly known as Chamonix, is a French winter sports resort town. Located in the southeastern part of the country, near the impressive peaks of Aiguilles Rouges and Aiguille du Midi, the area is a famous destination among skiing and mountaineering lovers.

On this ski touring trip, we will experience climbing and skiing on top quality terrain. We will use the lifts and then put on some skins to get away from the crowds. Stunning powder descents are guaranteed!

We will tailor the program to fit your wishes and your level (beginners are welcome!). Additionally, we will consider the snow and weather conditions. Furthermore, You can choose a one-day trip or spend several days in this beautiful area.

So, if you are looking for an unforgettable ski touring adventure, please get in touch with me. It will be my pleasure to guide you in the Chamonix valley and the Mont Blanc massif!

FAQs

I have never tried ski touring before. Is it accessible to beginners?

Chamonix is a great area to have a first ski touring experience. I always adapt the itinerary and program based on the experience of my clients, as well as the snow and weather conditions.

What’s included in the price I’ll pay here? What’s not?

My guiding service and the group equipment are included in the price you’ll pay here to book your tour. On top of that, you’ll need to pay for your lift ticket, your equipment rental, and the food/lunch.

Where will we meet?

We’ll meet based on the itinerary I’ll define for the day. The meeting point could be at the start of the cable car of one of the ski resorts of the Chamonix Vallée (Brevent, Flégère, Aiguille du Midi, Les Grands Montets, etc.). The exact itinerary will depend on your experience, your expectations, the conditions, and the weather forecast. About the last 2, we can only finalize them closer to the date. We have lots of options around the area for off-piste and ski touring.

I need to rent part of my backcountry skiing equipment. Where should I go?

You can go to Concept Pro Shop in Chamonix. It's not the cheapest option, but they have good quality gear, and you can get a 10% discount.

Can I join a group?

Unfortunately, not. I only guide private guided tours.

How long will we be skiing?

Since this will be a private and tailored trip for you, the duration depends on you, and on the snow and weather conditions of course.

Do I need to bring safety equipment?

You need to have a transceiver, a shovel, and a probe with you. If you don't have them, you can rent these at Concept Pro Shop in Chamonix.

Are you offering the ski descent of Vallée Blanche?

I guide Vallée Blanche as well. You’ll find the details here: https://www.explore-share.com/trip/vallee-blanche-off-piste-skiing/

Mountain Guide

I am an IFMGA mountain guide living in Cyprus. I have a passion for exploring the mountains since I was child. Kyperounda, the town where I was born and raised, was my first playground, the place where I started practising different outdoor activities.

First I learnt skiing. Then, I started training and taking part in races and competitions, traveling extensively in Europe. As I am very curious, I kept trying all kinds of sports until I discovered climbing and all its exciting possibilities.

I also developed both my academic and my practical skills in the university, where I studied Outdoor Studies and Sport Science. During that time, I obtained qualifications as a Mountain Leader and a Climber.

Teaching other people is one of the things I like the most. I find a deep joy in helping others to enjoy the mountains as much as I do.

The experience of all these years as well as my technical skills, have taken me closer to my goal: becoming an IFMGA mountain guide.

Kyriakos was an excellent guide for our descent of Vallee Blanche! He was accommodating toward what we were looking for in our tour. He was very knowledgeable about the surrounding alps area and enthusiastically shared that knowledge. He quickly assessed our abilities and let us go at an appropriate pace. I would recommend Kyriakos for any trip in the area.

Really happy with our guided off piste tour! Kyros took us places where other people hadn’t been skiing before, which was really nice.
