When we talk about freeride or off-piste skiing, Chamonix is a place that always comes to mind. During this trip, we will go the the beautiful Grands Montets, a large ski area near Chamonix with extraordinary landscapes.

In particular, this trip is great for beginners in off-piste skiing. An ideal initiation to this fantastic practice!

During this trip, we will cover how to:
– Progress off-piste
– Assess and manage the risks associated with this practice
– Use the transceiver, shovel and probe

Even though the minimum number of participants is 4, don't hesitate to register if you are alone. I will put groups together.

I had a great time climbing with Sebastien. He modified the trip because of the weather and was able to find dry rock on a wet day. Throughout the trip Sebastien not only provided plenty of climbing but also helped me on skills that I wanted to improve on.

Unforgettable experience, thanks to our guide Sebastien we reached the summit, he prepared us not only with the required skills also with the psychological strength for such an emblematic summit. Also we want to thank Gauthier (from Explore-Share) for his help preparing this expedition.

It was my first ski touring experience in high montainous areas: it was just unique thanks notably to the way Sébastien managed us in a very professional way. He inspired confidence in our group while this was the very first time for three among us. Congrats.
