The Aosta valley is famous for some of the best off-piste skiing in the world, and for 6 days, IFMGA certified guide Edward wants to help you enjoy it.
As famous as it is stunning, there is nowhere quite like the Aosta Valley. This amazing area was seemingly build for incredible skiing. Surrounded by the gorgeous peaks of the Alps this place is heaven for anybody who loves skiing.
Since this trip lasts for 6 days, you will have ample time to enjoy an array of fantastic slopes. And considering the wide variety, don’t be surprised if you want to return to the valley just to enjoy some of the slopes you may have missed.
We will be based out of Courmayeur, which is where your comfortable hotel is also located. The location is perfect, as it will give you access to several different lifts that can take you to some of the best descents in the area. Along with the great descents, there are also several beautiful glaciers you can reach by lift as well, including the Toula glacier.
The real beauty of the Aosta valley is the variety it offers. From the Pointe Helbronner (3559m) you will have access to some truly amazing places, from the Vallee Blanche to the Col d’Entreves. There is also a great variety of different terrains to ski on as well, including forests, open terrain, or on descents that easily exceed 1000 metres!
Enjoying the Aosta valley is not difficult. However, In order to participate this trip, you should have some previous off-piste skiing, and be in good physical condition.
Full of amazing skiing, unforgettable views of the Alps, and some of the best freeride skiing in the world, the Aosta valley has it all. And if you want to enjoy it for 6 days, all you have to do is send us a request.
I can also lead you on this 6 day safari ski tour of Mont Blanc in France as well.
A lovely, comfortable hotel in Courmayeur.
In 1987 I became a certified mountain guide after an intense four-year training program at the Technical University of Munich, thus becoming the first guide from the Netherlands to be IFMGA-certified and probably worldwide one of the first guides not originating from an alpine country. As a guide, I do everything from beginner courses in the Alps to worldwide climbing expeditions to the Seven Summits.
Based in Switzerland, just a few kilometers from the French town of Chamonix, I offer customized programs, tailor-made for each of my clients. As an alpinist and mountain guide, I’ve participated in many succesful expeditions, including Mt. Everest (north and south sides), Cho Oyu and Shisha Pangma (Tibet), Aconcagua (Argentina), Yerupaja South Face and Huascaran (Peru), Ojos del Salado (Chile), Mt Hunter and Denali (Alaska), Elbrus (Russia) Carstensz Pyramid (West Papoua) and Kilimanjaro (Tanzania). I’ve led two UIAA expeditions for talented young climbers: one in China and one in Pakistan. Both were very successful and led to the opening of some new (and sometimes difficult) routes. I’m always looking for new and challenging ski areas and, in recent years, have specialized in ski safaris and ski touring in the Alps, Morocco, Canada, Chile and Scandinavia. Adventure skiing is my passion since a long time and the challenge is to find the best snow and safe skiing and have fun with the group in a remote location. A father of 2, in my spare time, I like to go skiing, mountain biking and climbing with friends and family.

Fantastic trip with a great group! Edward made the most of the spring conditions. We were blessed with sunny days - touring in shorts and t-shirts. Beautiful views, skiing over fjords, after great ascents! Long descents, all in all an amazing week!!
My first proper ski touring trip and I didn’t really know what to expect...it was amazing In every respect. The scenery was stunning and accommodation perfect at MIT FabLab. Haakon looked after us at FabLab and Edward out on the mountain. I felt safe and exhilarated at the same time. The group were diverse with a sense of fun and a common interest in being out on the mountains. It really was a privilege for me to share the week with them. I look forward to another trip next winter. Bob
Fantastic mountain guide with an incredible singing voice!
