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!
Meet in Verbier in the morning, helicopter up to Petit-Combin (3674m), hike to summit (4314m), freeride ski down, finish back in Verbier.
Please bring with you: Touring skis, skins, crampons, ice-axe, harness, beeper, showel, probe.
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.

I had a very good experience booking the hike through Explore-Share. Communication with the team was prompt and clear and the booking process was seamless. The trip itself was also just perfect. Uroš was a fantastic guide, highly skilled and talented. The hike felt safe at all times, even on more exposed routes, thanks to him. He was always up to date on the weather forecast and planned the days around it, checked the conditions on the route ahead of me, if needed, discussed and adapted the routes to my level and always made sure I was safe and comfortable. I highly recommend him, as well as Explore-Share.

Explore Share is a really usefull website that has a great overview of reviewed guides for a (in our case) hiking/climbing trip. During the booking I got assigned an assistent for Explore Share that helped solve questions that I might have. Great customer service, and I will come back again.

Guide was very experienced and very patient with us. We learned a lot and he tried to fit in all the knowledge he could in one day, super awesome. A little tough going back and forth to get the trip set up hard to tell if the site is sketchy until you see reviews but all worked out. Ended up with an awesome day with an awesome guide. Overall pretty satisfied and thankful!

It's the 2nd time we have been booking with Explore-Share. The booking was super easy and both Explore-Share and the guide were fast in their responses. We did rafting as a family with 3 kids for the first time in Slovenia. The guide (José) was super nice. He was doing everything he could to make everyone at ease with rafting (he gave clear explanations), have a great team spirit (we were joined by 2 other girls) and have a good time. We had lots of fun and the nature there is so beautiful. Thank you Explore-share and Soca splash for the great afternoon! I would recommend this activity to anyone without a doubt. My kids immediately told me they want to do rafting again soon !"
