Jonathan Bruchez, a certified mountain guide, leads you on this truly special, unique, thrilling and fun freeride skiing day on Grand Combin via a heli drop, from Verbier, a jaw-dropping and breath-taking way to ascend this famous mountain before descending via 3000m of wide open, blissful freeriding.
Mar, Apr, May
I will guide you on this completely unique, completely fascinating and brilliantly fun freeride skiing day on Grand Combin, from Verbier, as we go to the upper reaches of the mountain via helicopter before hiking our way to the summit, with the pay-off being a 3000m freeride descent that offers truly memorable and beautiful views back out over the landscape, scenery and terrain, as well as an epic and awesome sense of freedom.
Grand Combin is a mountain massif in the Swiss section of the Pennine Alps, with its peak of 4314m being one of the highest in the Alps. It remains an immensely popular climbing and skiing destination, with guaranteed fresh and deep powder every day.
We meet in the morning in the alpine village of Verbier, where all relevant safety gear and information will be dispensed.
From there we start the journey in the most spectacular way possible, as we hitch a ride in our own helicopter to make it up to Petit-Combin (3674m)!
After the thrill of the helicopter, we then steel ourselves for a 4-hour hike up to the mighty and majestic summit of Grand Combin, where we will be exposed to some of the most exquisite and lovely views in Western Europe, as you can look back out over the massive valleys and towering mountains beneath us. You will definitely want to bring your camera!
After admiring the epic views, we then begin the highlight of the trip for many, a 3000m freeride descent down the mountain. The skiing down the slopes is sublime and superb, with the lack of crowds and pure, untouched snow making for an absolutely delightful and magnificent experience.
We then finish the day back in Verbier, our adrenaline still pumping and our memories still fresh of the thrill-seeking and wonderful activities we have just experienced.
This is the funnest possible way to spend a day in the Swiss Alps – book now so you don’t miss out!

Originally from Bagnes, in the Swiss canton of Valais, I took an interest in skiing, rock climbing and the high mountain at a very young age. In an effort to turn my passion into my profession, I became a certified mountain guide in 2011. Later, in 2013, my interest in rescue efforts then led me to become an ambulance technician.
I'm always eager to share my passion with my clients and to take them off-the-beaten path in order for them to discover the mountains from a different perspective.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
