About the guide

I have been a mountain guide for almost 20 years. But I'm not only a guide...
The mountain is the thread of my life. I am a member of the Chamonix Guides Company, ski instructor and teacher for many years at ENSA (National School of Ski and Alpinism), I am very experienced in the mountains. My experience is multifaceted since I partake in varied projects, as a trainer and first aider at the Chamoniarde de Secours (an association that contributes to the development of mountain safety and to promote alpine environment knowledge), technical supervisor of the freeride competitions organization, or safety advisor and rider in several freeride videos.
My favorite?... The Kamchatka, heliski's promised land. In 2005 I created a heliski agency in Russia, to share my passion organizing exceptional ski journeys.

Le meilleur trip ski de ma vie dans un endroit sur lequel je fantasmais depuis des années. Un voyage complet, exotique à souhait dans une ambiance top! De vrais mordus de ski, passionnés de grands espaces qui partagent une semaine de passion commune. Des guides pros, internationaux et qui connaissent l'endroit comme leur poche. Ils sauront s'adapter au profil du groupe et à ses envies. Toujours à la recherche de la meilleure neige, de la plus belle trace et du spot le plus photogénique... Un service irréprochable, une vraie découverte de la Russie et une ambiance détendue. L'hôtel qui sert de Camp de base est parfaitement équipé et les débriefings au sauna en fin de journée valent le coup! Une note sur 10? 9,5!
