Type of Trip
The Argentiere Basin in the French Alps is a beautiful area that is perfect for great ski touring.
Located near Chamonix, which is the one of the most gorgeous areas in the French Alps, the Argentiere Basin is full of amazing sights. There is a huge array of amazing peaks you can see from this place. Just a few examples include Les Droites (4,000m), Aiguille Verte (4,122m), the Aiguille d’Argentiere (3,901m) and many, many more. You will also be able to see the majestic Argentiere glacier as well.
With so many spectacular things to see, it’s no wonder this area is so popular. However, while the sights may definitely bring you there, the skiing will most certainly keep you there!
There are a number of thrilling descents that can be enjoyed around the Argentiere Basin. And on this trip, I will help you enjoy as many of them as I can. I will keep into account your skill level, as well as weather and snow conditions to help find you the right spots.
And because this trip takes place near Chamonix, you will also have no problem finding a great place to rest and relax before and after this trip as well. Hence making it easy to have this day long ski touring adventure be part of a bigger, exciting vacation in the Alps of France.
If you would like to join me on this amazing day trip in the Argentiere Basin, all you have to do is send me a request. I will see to it that you have a great and memorable experience.
I also lead a ski touring day trip through La Thuile in the Italian Alps as well.

There are many comfortable accommodation options throughout Chamonix that I would be happy to recommend to you.
About the Guide
I am a native of Chamonix, France. It is there I developed a motivation to discover the various winter sports within the valley. After participating in snowboarding competitions, I enrolled in a mountain guide course, which I completed in 2013. On top of my passion for guiding, I am also passionate about audiovisual art, which I try to incorporate in the framework of my profession.
