A great opportunity to ski backcountry off the beaten tracks in the best ski spots around Chamonix: Le Brévent, La Flégère, Le Tour, Les Grands Montets and La Vallée Blanche, with Isa, IFMGA guide.
Join me for this 5-day ski touring / backcountry skiing trip in the best spots around Chamonix such as Le Brévent, La Flégère, Le Tour, Les Grands Montets and La Vallée Blanche.
Our objective will be to reach the wild places around Chamonix using first the lifts of the different resorts and going then further up using our skins.
Being from Chamonix, I enjoy very much bringing my friends and clients in these places that I know very well, in order to let them discover my secret spots, far from the crowd.
It’s ideal for the ones who don’t know Chamonix very well and who wants to try the different ski places in one trip.
We will come back every evening in Chamonix to have diner and sleep. I will recommend you some accommodations. Lunches will be taken in the wild, up there.
Besides good skiing in untracked snow and in a great alpine atmosphere… you will enjoy spectacular views on some of the most beautiful mountains of the Alps: Mont Blanc range, Les Aiguilles Rouges…
The best period to do this 5-day ski tour is from January till beginning of April, depending on the snow conditions.
I will take up to 6 clients with me. If you would be a larger group, I will ask a friend of mine, IFMGA mountain guide as well, to join us.
If you have less than 5 days, we will adapt the planning accordingly.
Please get in touch with me if you are interested to come with me for this ski program. We can then discuss the details and arrange the trip of you life 😉 For this season, I still have availabilities in March, 7th to 11th and 12th to 16th

As a French Canadian, I grew up in the extreme winters of Quebec. It wasn't until I came to Switzerland, 20 years ago as a teacher, that I discovered the high mountains. Since those first steps, my life has taken a dramatic change. Whilst finishing a Masters degree in Adult Education in Geneva, I found myself drawn ever closer to the rock walls and snows of the European Alps.
My extensive adventures around the world include: traversing the Alps on telemarks, experiencing the high altitude of Aconcagua, Denali and Ama Dablam, battling spin drifts in Alaska and exploring the mountainous regions of Peru and Bolivia. This motivated me to pursue my passion as a career. I'm now one of 16 women in France to have made the mountains my home as a professional mountain guide and member of the UIAGM. I'm based in the Chamonix valley. I can point out most summits and tell you a story about a climb I have done or a North Face on which I have shivered on.
Being the proud mum of 2 young children, I have to adapt my mountaineering aspirations. I continue to live in the constant search for perfect balance enabling others to achieve their alpine dreams safely and spending time with my family. Climbing, mountaineering and skiing remain a source of inspiration to me. Whether on rock or ice, in the mountains or sports climbing, I relishe these forms of creative expression. I need daily challenges, the search for a solution to the seemingly impossible.
I love to share this vertical world I'm privileged to live in. My goals are to encourage others to experience the same and to go beyond their own perceived physical and mental limits.
Isabelle guided the classic Chamonix - Zermatt ski haute route for myself and my friends, who travelled all the way from Japan, and had an absolutely amazing 6 days in the Alps with the stunning backdrop of Mont Blanc and Matterhorn! She was a skilful guide weaving us safely through crevassed fields, taught us crevasse rescue techniques and spoke immaculate English easily understood by non-native speakers (actually a surprisingly uncommon skill to be found!). But what actually made our trip special was that she brightened up the whole trip with her infectious smile, positive energy and drive, and pushed us in a motherly way where it was needed. At the end of the trip, she also sent us beautiful photos that she took of us throughout the trip!!
