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!

About the guide

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.
