    ChamonixChamonix-Mont Blanc, is the dream for all freeriders! This trip is a freeride ski touring version with some beautiful ascents, longer than in other trips that I offer. Change your week in Costa Brava for this experience. You will also come home with a tan, but it will be much more fun!

    In and around the Mont Blanc massif, going from hut to hut if possible. In fact, we may end up very far from where we started, and we’ll simply return by bus. We will go for example to Brévent, Flégère, Tour, Grands Montets, Aiguille du MidiVallée Blanche. We will sleep in comfortable refuges with great ambiance. Need I say more?

    I was disappointed. I was slower than the rest of the group reaching Tete Rousse, and the guide discouraged me from going to Gouter. I had a slight ankle sprain the day before which slowed my ascent. I recovered 95% the day after. My complaint: when I decided to go for a second guided attempt, at a slower pace, I received no help in securing a guide, or a reservation at Gouter. The online reservation showed fully booked both for Rousse and Gouter. But I know that there were lots of empty bunks at Rousse, and I suspect the same at Gouter. I received sympathy, but only as a formality. Initially I had sought a single dedicated guide, but I was encouraged to join a group. I did not get a choice.I should have known better, I knew my pace would be a bit slower, but I counted on your support and understanding. I got neither. I was on my own with no help.
