Enjoy off the beaten tracks slopes and powder snow during your next stay in Val d'Isère or Tignes together with Goulven, local IFMGA mountain guide
The ski area around Val d’Isère and Tignes – Espace Killy – bids immense possibilities for off-piste skiing at all levels, from your first steps outside the groomed slopes to steep and deep couloirs for the more adventurous experts.
All around Val d’Isère, the Vanoise National Parc has preserved vast patches of wilderness, giving the area its unique character. These magnificent and preserved valleys are nevertheless easily accessible from the lifts, and from Val d’Isère one can also ski to the neighbouring areas of la Plagne, Les Arcs or the Maurienne valley for day trips.
So for one or several days, from our base in Val d’Isère or from where you are staying, I can share with you the pleasure of skiing the local off-piste classics :
Before venturing further on skins (ski touring), or on the neighbouring areas of Sainte Foy, La Plagne, Les Arcs, or the 3 Vallées.
By yourself, with family (big kids and teenagers welcome !) or friends, I will adapt the day’s program to your wishes and technical ability. I will provide you with all the necessary safety equipment (airbag, shovel, probe, DVA beeper, harness when on glaciers) and advise you on the suitable ski gear if necessary.
Should you wish to join a group of like minded skiers to go off-piste, every morning TopSki organises off-piste groups of different levels to discover all that Val d’Isere offers. 6 people max.
My daily guiding fee is 410€ and this includes the above mentioned equipment for the members of the group.
One or more days of freeride skiing can be combined with backcountry skiing / ski touring and even heliskiing. Feel free to contact me for a personalised program that will enable you to make the most of your holidays while discovering the unspoiled wilderness of the Tarentaise and the Maurienne, far from the crowded resorts.
With my name I can’t make you believe that I am mountaineer of origin! I am a breton migrant worker who was stranded in the Pyrénées and later in the Alps…
What I like most of my job is the incredible mountain’s support to weave the real relationships in a short time and often the quality with people whom I guide to these beautiful summits. It is with a great pleasure that I put at your disposal my 25 years of experience in the climbing, mountaineering and skiing playgrounds to guide you in your adventure projects. I am also ski instructor and mountain rescuer. See you soon!
Overall the experience was great - Xavier really knew the local area catered to everyones abilities in the group and offered some great advice. I would love to book another day trip (or maybe even a multi day trip!) with Xavier so I could experience some of the peace and quiet you get away from the piestes in the remote areas of the mountains. Would recommend to anyone that wants to explore the mountains away from the crowds.
