Chartreuse powder skiing with a guide

chartreuse 2
chartreuse 3

Ski down the best powder and the most varied terrain in the Chartreuse mountains with IFMGA-certified mountain guide Olivier.


+1 Day

Jan - Apr, Dec


Come explore the wild Chartreuse mountains with this great ski touring program! You'll enjoy the most amazing powder in completely off-the-beaten-track terrain.

The Chartreuse is one of the French massifs that receives the most annual rainfall. The winter is quite cold here, so rain turns into snow and transforms this area into a magnificent powder reservoir!

There are some very interesting itineraries to explore in the area. Many of them offer great landscape and ski variety and will make you feel like if you were lost in the middle of nowhere. So crowds will feel ages away! Ski down fun forests and make turns on amazing open slopes. The Chartreuse offers the widest variety to satisfy everyone!

Depending on your availability, we can go for a 1-day or a multi-day program. Therefore, contact me with any questions you may have and we'll put together a program that is right for you.

Furthermore, if you'd like to check out some of my other programs, you can take a look at my 4-day ski touring program in the Queyras!

Come enjoy an exciting powder day in the Chartreuse! I can pick you up at the Grenoble train station if it works for you. So don't hesitate to contact me, even at the last minute.

About the guide

Mountain Leader

I have always loved just being outside, taking my time to be there and observe, to grasp the instants of simple and essential happiness.
In 2006, my thirst for large spaces led me for a year to a corner of the world which sings mystery and breathes history: the Kerguelen islands. As a scientist, I discovered there a greatly wild universe. I had the chance to live in the rhythm of an overflowing Nature, observing throughout the day the relentless progress of the life cycle of many animal and vegetal species in the island. A big human adventure that has forged ties of strong friendships. Mocking the passing time and the usual flow of activity. As a visitor I took with me warm and beautiful memories of these desolated islands.
Returning, I finished my engineering studies and I started a PhD. This period was marked in parallel by an intense mountain practice and by some rough travels (India, Madagascar, crossing the Alps by bike...).
I have always loved making my friends discover this mountain universe, and each time it's an immense happiness to share these moments. The mountain often arouses big and beautiful emotions, a mixture of awe and wonder that result sometimes in the birth of true passions. Currently organised between science and the mountain, I hope to continue with you this beautiful sharing through my guide profession.
Feet on the ground and head in the stars... Or the other way around?

What people are saying about Olivier



We spent 6 days in full sun touring in the Queyras around Monte Viso. Olivier guided us from hut to hut expertly, efficiently and sympathetically - given our ages and blisters. Route selection kept us challenged but always created opportunities for enjoying fabulous vistas, appreciating the solitude and, of course, excellent descents. Olivier was able to keep us going in a friendly and thoroughly professional manner and it was a real pleasure to ski with him.
