Description

Come follow me on this ski mountaineering adrenaline-pumped three-day adventure in the stunning Mount Olympus, Greece!

Get ready for a unique experience in Mount Olympus.  Our trip will include a wide variety of activities. We’ll climb with skis on our backs, head up to the 40th slope, try night skiing, climb and then ski downhill, and learn to find the best snow quality!

This trip is perfect for advanced skiers with off-piste experience, in good physical shape, that have done ski mountaineering before and know how to use crampons. I have a lot of experience in the mountains and I will teach you all the basic mountain safety techniques, such as how to recognize possible avalanches, find victims with ARVA, use of rope and piolet, and more. This is a trip that will challenge your skills and familiarize you with dangerous fields and abrupt downhill crashes.

Keep in mind that we may vary the location of the trip to find better snow conditions.  Tymphi is another possible spot for this program.

If you are an experienced skier and are looking to take your skills to the next level, then this is the trip for you. Furthermore, the stunning location will take your breath away! Book your trip now and I’ll take care of all the rest!

Mountain Guide

I have been climbing with passion since the age of 14 when I started rock climbing, and (in my 20's) I became a full-time mountain guide. Even though climbing first began only as a hobby, it later led me to a professional Mountain Guide title.

I am a Greek certified Mountain Guide HFMC, and an IFMGA/UIAGM/IVBV Mountain Guide, which is the highest internationally recognized mountain guiding certification. I am also a board member of the Hellenic Mountain Guide Association and a member of the Austria Guides Association (section Vorarlberg).

I work together with a group of certified guides, so If I am not available to guide you, one of the experienced guides in my team will be your guide.

In the last 20 years, I have accomplished many expeditions all over the world from Denali in Alaska to Damavand Iran, climbing or guiding and skitouring.

I love the mountains as well as the sea. I'm a passionate sailor and a skipper, also organizing climbing and sailing trips in the Aegean Sea.

Now I am currently studying Marketing and Management at EAP University.
I live between my birthplace Litochoro, the village at the foot of Mt. Olympus Greece, and Chamonix France.
You can find me guiding between Mt. Olympus and Chamonix Mont-Blanc, ski touring the Haute Route in the Alps, to summiting Mt Elbrus in Caucasus or sailing and climbing on the Greek islands.

I love to work with groups in new destinations and make great pictures along the way.

Two day trip on Mt. Olympus on October 20/21, 2023, with Babis. Babis was an excellent guide. Local person, and very experienced and knowledgeable. Careful about assessing and managing any risks, and working to meet my expectations. Very well organized and fun to spend time with. Had a great time. Thanks!!

Climbing a mountain is far from being an easy thing to do. I fell extremely lucky to choose Babis Marinidis as my guide to hide the mount of Olympus. Babis gathers all the qualities of a professional international mountain guide. Not only he motivates you to encounter your physical difficulties, but also your mental challenges in order to drive you to the edge. He is very clear with an analytic brief which summarizes what will happen, what to expect, verifying the trail conditions and forecast, respecting your pace. I trust him and I had the best experience of my life, hence I can highly recommend him.

The trip up Mt Olympus was even better than we imagined it would be, and that was partly due to Babis being a great guide. He knows the mountain so well, it's almost as if he built it.
