Getting the basics of ski touring in Chamonix. a 2-day trip with Sebastien, a IFMGA/UIAGM certified mountain guide
I invite you to come learn the basic ski touring techniques through this 2-day course that I organize in Chamonix, in the heart of the Mont Blanc massif.
At the end of this training, you will be ready to do ski touring expeditions over several days, like the Haute Route from Chamonix to to Zermatt, for example. This course also aims to help you understand the risks of ski touring and explain the use of avalanche equipment (detector, shovel and probe).
I advise participants to have some experience in off-piste skiing to be comfortable in the descents and for a best approach to glacier grounds.
The best time for ski touring in the Chamonix area runs from December to April. Several dates are open for those who wish to join a group. We will be a maximum of 8 people to promote optimal learning for everyone.
You will find the program I propose for this ski touring introductory course. This could be changed at the last minute depending on weather and snow conditions.
Saturday – Learning the basic techniques of ski touring and safety
Meeting at my partner’s store in Chamonix so you can rent the equipment you need. I will check that you have the required equipment. Then we will go to the Grands Montets to review skiing techniques and learn those of ski touring, all in a glacier field (Glacier d’Argentière). By late afternoon, we will do some exercises with the avalanche sensor, shovel and probe.
Sunday – Ski touring at Crochue Bérarde.
For our second day, we will put into practice the techniques learned during the previous day. We will take La Flégère lifts at 9am and at the top of the Index chairlift, we will go together for a beautiful hike to the Crochue Bérarde. The positive vertical drop will be of 735 meters and the negative vertical drop of 1795 meters. We’ll be back in the valley in Chamonix, at 5PM.
My daily guiding fee is 335€ so that would make 670€ for the 2 days.
I invite you to contact me if you are interested in this program. Of course, I also customize it for you.
