Please join me for one or more days of skiing off piste, away from the beaten tracks. Let’s go in search of beautiful landscapes, breathtaking panoramas, the silence of the nature, the idyllic powder snow. All of this in the Valais, in Switzerland.

Both in freeride and backcountry skiing, we can enjoy the best virgin snow!

We can meet together in one of these ski resorts of the Valais: Aletsch Arena, Anzère, Arolla, Belalp-Blatten-Naters, Bellwald, Bruson et Val de Bagnes, Burchen – Torbel, Champéry, Champex, Champoussin, Crans Montana, Eischoll, Evolène, Grachen, Grimentz-Zinal, La Fouly-Val Ferret, Les Crosets, Les Marécottes-Salvan, Leukerbad, Lotschental, Morgins, Nax/Mont Noble, Nendaz, Obergoms, Ovronnaz, Rosswald-Brig, Saas Almagell, Saas Fee, Saas Grund, Saint Luc Chandolin, Thyon 4 Vallées, Torgon, Unterbach, Verbier, Vercorin, Vichères-Liddes, Zermatt…

I want you to have fun and maximize your chance to have an unforgettable day. Therefore I recommend you to bring skis with binding allowing to ski tour and your skins. This allows us to enlarge the number of options for finding the best ski spots.

Are you in Valais looking for a different ski experience than the one we know in the ski resorts? Then I invite you to contact me! We will have the opportunity to discuss the different options we have. Of course we will choose based on the time you have, your location, your ski level… It will be my pleasure to let you discover some of my secret spots in the Valais. I will take you where nobody goes and where the snow is usually fantastic.

I also offer many other trip options in the Alps, check them out! And if you are looking for a more remote location, we can ski in Japan or Iceland!

About the Guide

 
 

Attracted by the mountains since childhood, I started with climbing and alpinism. I then discovered my passion for ski touring.
I started a Young&Sport instructor training to lead young people in the mountain, accompanied by guides. This experience inspired me to become a mountain guide, and I got certified in September 2015.
I work in a guide's office with other guides friends as Stéphane, Raphael, Christian and Jean-Luc, mountain leader.
What I love the most: make people enjoy, allow them to discover a region, laughing, everything in a safe way.
So if there's something you wish, if you dream of exploring a region or country, don't hesitate to contact me.
See you soon for new discoveries!
