Description

Easily one of the most famous and popular skiing destinations in the French Alps, the Mont Blanc Massif is nothing short of incredible. And on this 4 day adventure, you will get to enjoy descents in several different areas on the great massif.

The skiing options on the Mont Blanc massif are as diverse as they are exciting. Just a few examples include the following.

  • Glacier de la Brenva

  • The Argentiere basin

  • Breche Puiseux

  • Grandes Jorasses

Along with the fantastic skiing, the views you will get of the Alps during this trip are unbelievable. You will get to see a number of wonderful peaks, including Las Verte, Les Droites, Drus and many more.

due to the enormity and unpredictable nature of the Mont Blanc massif, our itinerary will be decided shortly before the trip begins. The reason being I like to consider weather conditions, snow conditions as well as your skiing level, preferences and other factors as long as I possibly can. Thus ensuring the best and most enjoyable and safest trip possible. There is even a chance we will cross borders and ski in Switzerland and Italy!

In the evenings, there are a number of comfortable mountain huts we can choose from. Each one of these huts will provide you with the perfect place to get some much needed rest for the following day’s fun.

Ski Touring on the Mont Blanc massif is an experience you will never forget. So if you would like to join me on this 4 day adventure, which can be reduced to a single day if you like, just send me a request. I look forward to guiding you.

I also offer a 4 day ski touring adventure in the Aosta valley, which you can enjoy here.

About the guide

I have been a mountain guide since I was 25 years old. My passion for discovering the mountains of the world has led me to the four corners of the earth. Currently, I am also an instructor at the National School of Skiing and Mountaineering (ENSA).

Each year, I organize different trips. I'm in charge of each trip's organization and I'm sometimes also the guide who leads the group. It could either be me or one of my 4 guide friends, who I have been working with for years.

I have been organizing trips around the world for the past 26 years: Alaska, Antractica, Nepal, Mongolia...Over the years, I have organized trips in more than 30 countries.

In recent years I have had the opportunity to discover:
- Ski traverse in Greenland
- Ski touring in Iran, Lebanon, Mongolia, Argentina, Canada
- Climbing in the Yukon at the Lotus Flower, Jordan, Oman
- The high summits of Sichuan, Kula Kangri in Tibet, Langtang Ri in Nepal

I am currently based in Chamonix and the other 3 guides who work with me live nearby as well. If you are interested in traveling far away or discovering the Mont Blanc massif and other places in the Alps, for climbing, ski touring or ice climbing, please contact me. It will be a pleasure for me to organise a trip that meets your expectations.
