Description

Invest in your climbing career and gain crucial experience on some of the world’s most prestigious peaks in the Alps! Enjoy an exciting mountaineering program in and around Chamonix that is catered just for you and discover what makes this region the “Birthplace of Alpinism!”

In the southeast of France, on the border with Italy and Switzerland, Chamonix operates as a beacon for adventurers and world travelers. Beckoning sports enthusiasts from every corner of the globe, it sits in a valley below the notorious peaks that meet at the intersection of these three Alpine countries. The Chamonix region has access, snow quality, geological works of art, and the climbing culture to accompany these qualities to make it the pinnacle of mountaineering.

There is an abundance of thrilling and fascinating routes up and down the mountains, enough for more than a lifetime of dedicated mountaineering. Placed in the center of this mountain masterpiece, you will benefit from a flexible program that wants nothing more than to make your dream climbing program a reality. The endless supply of remarkable routes will satisfy every level of alpinist – even children – and the overall aesthetics of the Alps will leave you breathless.

Ascending Mont Blanc and the Matterhorn are top priorities to many climbers and we can carve out a program for a day or more on a plethora of snow, ice, and rock. Your adventure can focus on a specific climbing objective or it can include a wide array of techniques and landscapes to give you access to the entire region.

Remote areas are well within reach from the steep valley. Wonderful alpine scenery accompanies the approaches and the climbs, including pristine lakes and peaceful meadows. You will dig in to mountain villages, like Les Gailland, and learn the ropes of glacier travel along immaculate terrain such as the Bosson Glacier and Vallee Blanche. The more experience and technique you bring to the rock, the more options you have.

Mixed climbing destinations like Cosmiques Arete and the indomitable Pyramid Du Tacul are fan favorites, while seasoned climbers can expect the challenging Entreves and Chere Couloir as heart-pumping objectives. Other possible mountaineering trips include Aig’ Du Midi, Dent de Geant, and so much more.

This area is world renowned for a reason and I would be honored to share it with you. I can ensure you have a safe and satisfying program that will help you progress as a climber and cross the Alps off your bucket list.

There are great climbs for everyone, so all levels are welcome. A general level of fitness and fortitude will help you get the most out of this trip.

Book this epic mountaineering program in the Alps NOW and head to Chamonix to conquer the region’s most formidable and fun peaks!

We can always switch gears and try a rock climbing program off the Las Vegas Strip at Red Rock Canyon! Or we can take our mountaineering skills state-side and discover the incomparable beauty of the Cascade Mountains in Washington State!

About the guide

I am the owner of Lotus Alpine Adventures and have a long career in the guiding industry. I started out working in Outdoor Education in Colorado, where I also received a degree in Outdoor Education from Ithaca College.

From 2007 to 2014, I owned and operated Crested Butte Mountain Guides. Throughout those years, I also worked through the AMGA training curriculum and eventually became the 95th American to obtain IFMGA certification, the most rigorous international certification available in the industry.

Throughout my career, I have worked for and built partnerships with many of the main mountain guiding agencies in the US and it is thanks to these partnerships that Lotus Alpine Adventures can now offer programs in very varied spots across the US, including: Crested Butte, Boulder and Eldorado Canyon in Colorado; Moab and Castle Valley in Utah; Red Rocks in Nevada; Valdez in Alaska; Jackson Hole in Wyoming; and the Cascades of Washington.

All of my experience and expertise ultimately results in a truly professional guiding service and a great trip experience for you and your group, regardless of your level or activity.
