I invite you to join me for some ice climbing in the best spots of the Alps and enjoy a good time in the nature while learning new technics and progress together. 

I like to climb on this ephemeral element that is ice, climbing on an ice line, different each season depending on the conditions, following a route imposed by the shape of the structure… beautiful sensations that are not found in any other practice…

I invite you to contact me if you are looking for a guide to accompany you in ice climbing, whether to teach you the basics or help you to improving your skills. It will be my great pleasure to share with you my experience as a guide and allow you to enjoy unique ice falls in safe conditions.

We can leave together for one or several days.

Here are the places where I like to take my friends and clients in the Alps:

Haute Tarentaise: Val d’Isère, Tignes, Courchevel, Chapieux…

Haute Maurienne: Bonneval, Bessans, Bramans, Termignon, Val Cenis, Val Frejus, Orelle, Modane…

Haute Savoie: Chamonix, Argentière, Vallée Giffre, Massif Bornes / Aravis, Chablais…

For 2 or more days:

Ecrins mountain range: big potential

– In Italy, Cogne: renown site and often in very good conditions

– In Switzerland, Kandersteg: You need some practice because there are rather large difficult stunts.

And for longer stays, there are really beautiful places, like Norway, Canada, Sweden

The best time in the Alps is between January and late February.

My daily guiding fee is 400€. You will need to add on top of that the potantial expenses we might have (transportation, accommodation, food..).

Please contact me to discuss about your wishes and what you would like to do. I will be happy to guide you and give you the necessary insides in order for you to progress and gain autonomy in ice climbing.

What happens if I need to cancel the trip?
If you decide to cancel, you’ll get a 100% refund (minus fees) if the cancellation is notified up to 60 days before the start of the tour, a 75% refund (minus fees) if you cancel between 59 and 30 days before the start of the tour, and a 50% refund if you cancel between 29 and 21 days before the start of the tour. If you cancel less than 21 days before the first day of the tour, you won’t receive a refund. Take into account, however, that if accommodation, flights or transfers were included in the trip you booked, then a different policy may apply as the guide will be bound by the provider’s cancellation policy.

What happens if the guide cancels the trip because of bad weather/unsuitable conditions?
If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).

What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.
