    I invite you to discover the area of La Rosiere and La Thuile, from another angle and new approach. We will be in the northern part of the beautiful Vanoise National Park. 

    We can leave together for one or several days. This is a very flexible program, appreciated by those who want to ski alone, with family, with a group of friends or in private, with a guide.

    My goal is to build a custom program that will suit your wishes and adapt to your fitness level.

    You could ski off-piste by gravity from the ski lifts, use sealskins from the top of the slopes to reach beautiful descents in virgin snow, or undertake longer walks to climb the passes and peaks of our valley.

    Whether you want to discover the wide field of skiing, learn techniques to improve your style or discover the richness and the secret corners of the off-piste and ski touring in Haute Tarentaise, I am at your disposal to make your skiing stay as successful as possible.

    I can introduce you to La Rosiere and La Thuile but also other beautiful areas of our region. For example Sainte Foy, Les Arcs, La Plagne, Tignes and Val d’Isere. This also gives us some flexibility depending on the snow and weather conditions. Going ski touring on Mont Valezan could also be a great option!

    In addition, I offer you the possibility to combine this tailored program with some exciting heliski, for example from the Col du Petit Saint Bernard.

    I invite you to contact me if you want to book a day or more, or just for more information about the possibilities. It will be my pleasure to guide you down these slopes.

    What People are Saying about Jean-Marc Kaufmann


    Hello to all who like the intensity of amazing heights reached with sometimes a bit of sweat but so rewarding that the memories live in you year in or out. I travelled many times with Jean-Marc as guide. Heliskiing in Canada, Touring skiing (seals\' skin skiing) in Tromso, Spitzberg or more simply in ski resorts like France, Italy and Bulgaria. I recommend him for the complete trust in what he is sure I can do and his guiding ability on top of our sharing a good bear after the day\'s efforts (I am Belgian so ...). I even tried myself at 53 years\' old to a bit of climbing with \"Aiguille d\'Entrève\" and discovered a new ability. Great moments past and to come.

    Jean-Marc nous a guidé avec beaucoup de professionnalisme dans l\'ascension du Grand-Paradis cet été. Ce fut une très belle première expérience d\'alpinisme pour moi, en toute confiance. Les passionnantes discussions à bâtons-rompus comme le respect du silence (dans la longue descente) m\'ont paru précieux également.

    J’ai eu la chance de rencontrer Goulven et d’être guidé par lui sur le Grand Paradis en août 2014. C’est un super compagnon de cordée, un pro de la sécurité, un excellent leader, un défenseur de belles valeurs montagnardes et une personne très riche par le métier diversifié qu’il exerce, guide de haute montagne mais aussi copilote d’hélicoptère.
