Description

How could you say no to one week of freeride skiing in the most famous resort in the Alps? This Chamonix freeride ski tour is a dream come true!

Located in the heart of the French Alps, Chamonix is without doubt Europe’s alpine mecca. With its impressive mountains, many higher than 4000 m, it is the perfect location for freeride skiing.

So I offer a combined program of cable cars and skins to look for the hidden places with the best powder. Indeed, my main objective is to reach the maximum amount of joy with the minimum possible effort.

First of all, we’ll meet at the Pyrenees from where we’ll drive to Chamonix. And we’ll spend the next day getting to know each other on skis and and practicing how to use the transceiver. This first day is important to be safe the rest of the way.

From then on, it will be a skiing paradise. I’ll guide you to the best hidden places in Chamonix. During the week we’ll try to get the most out of the runs with the smallest amount of hiking possible.

So let me know if you’re interested in this Chamonix freeride ski tour and reserve your dates well in advance!

And if you’re looking for trips somewhere else in Europe, check out these adventures: 5-day Carros de Foc and 4-day Northern Carros de Foc.
