Description

The Aosta Valley in northwest Italy is one of the most incredible places for ski touring in the Alps. It is a truly beautiful place that has more than earned its acclaim. And I know after one day here, you might never want to leave!

There is an incredible variety of different places in the Aosta Valey. Because of that, I can offer trips for just one day, or several days, that involve staying in mountain huts. It all depends on what you want, and where you want to go. Thus making this as open ended an adventure as you can get.

The only thing that all participants will have to have is prior off-piste skiing experience, and to be physically fit. Besides that, the only limits on this trip are those of the enormous Aosta valley and your own imagination.

Some of the most popular areas we can explore include the Monte Rosa mountain range, Courmayeur, the Gran Paradiso massif, Val di Rhemes, Valpelline, Gran San Bernardo, and so many more.

There are trips for every single of those aforementioned areas. And each one, from the 5 day Gran Paradiso tour to the 5 day Monte Rosa tour offers its own unique sights and experiences. However, regardless of which ever option you choose, from 1 day to 5 days, and any time in between, I know you will have the time of your life in a place that cannot be forgotten.

Please send me a trip request if you want to join me on an adventure in the gorgeous Aosta Valley. It will be my pleasure to guide you.

I also offer another ski touring adventure along the beautiful Periades route in Chamonix, France.

We had a great weekend skiing with Elis close to Valgrisenche. We stayed in a really nice mountain hotel from which lots of tours were accessible. Food and welcome was great. Elis is a great guide, kind and always cheerful, he makes sure you feel safe and have a great tour. Sun was out, snow wasn't amazing but then you're in Italy so ambiance makes up for it. Highly recommended!

We had a fantastic day with Elis doing ski touring in the Aosta Valley. He was easy-going, yet very professional, and had a good knowledge of the area. He made safe route choices on a day with considerable avalanche risk and shared some nice tips and tricks along the way. He was able to communicate well in both Italian, French and English. We would not hesitate with using him for future trips

Nous avons passé 4 jours en montagne à notre entière satisfaction et bénéficié des excellentes prestations d'Elis, guide que je recommande sans réserve. La météo nous a perturbé le déroulement initial du tour mais des solutions de remplacement ont été trouvées. Avec mes salutations les meilleures. Raymond Jaquet

We had a very exciting trip in Valle d’Aosta with Elis. A first day of free-riding for warming up, followed by three days of ski-touring in the beautiful valleys between Courmayeur and Aosta… Being also in contact with other guides, Elis has been able to find the best spots considering the changing weather and the quality of the snow. He is always keen to share his knowledge of the mountain and of the Valle d’Aosta’s back-country, where he grew up. Also therefore, we had a lot of pleasure in sharing with him well deserved meals at very nice places he would recommend… I would highly recommend him for discovering this region.

Val d'Aoste is such a fantastic destination for skitouring. Overlooked by many, it offers stunning valleys to explore as you pass one charming village after another up a mountain road. Elis was the perfect guide to explore his native backcountry: deep local knowledge allows him to make the best of any weather and snow conditions - and book the best table for a well-deserved recovery and some fine Italian pasta. He's a super nice, enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide I would highly recommend

Elis took us to various places around Aosta for four days. We had varying weather conditions and he was able to navigate those and get us to great snow every day even though there hadn't been a snow fall in 10 days. The routes were adjusted to the team's abilities and he took good care of us and the motivation of the troops, in particular in light of my fear of heights. Given his excellent knowledge of the region, Elis was spot on in his choices of places in terms of scenery, wilderness and isolation from any nuisance. He is also a fantastic companion with whom we enjoyed endless meals, espresso's and drinks. I'd highly recommend him.
