    Beyond the many available off-piste descents, the area around Val d’Isère is rich in magnificent back country skiing itineraries only open to the skiers equipped with skins and ski touring gear. 

    A little effort and a short walk of under an hour already leaves the vast majority of skiers behind, and opens the way to wide virgin slopes for unforgettable mornings of skiing pleasure. Ski touring does not require extraordinary skiing ability nor physical fitness; after some technical coaching on the use of the equipment, the average skier can already enjoy superb touring.

    I would be delighted to initiate you to the delights of ski touring, and share the joys of the mountains far from the ski lifts. Bigger children and teenagers welcome !

    For the more experienced, we can choose longer day tours, as well as hut-to-hut tours sleeping in refuges. There are many refuges around Val d’Isère  (Prariond, Carro, Sevettes, Averole..) from which we can also ski to the Italian valleys of the Val d’Aoste.

    I will provide you with all the necessary safety material (airbag, shovel, probe, DVA beeper, harness when on glaciers) and advise you on the suitable ski gear if necessary.

    My daily guiding fee is 410€ and it includes the above mentioned equipment.

    I will take maximum 6 skiers with me in order to maximise the safety of the group. If you would come with more than 6 people, my colleague Xavier, IFMGA mountain guide as well, will join us.

    One or more days of ski touring in Val d’Isère can be combined with off-piste / freeride skiing days and even heliskiing. Please contact me to discuss your projects and aspirations, and we can define together an ad-hoc program.

    About the Guide


    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!

    Goulven a une lecture époustouflante de la montagne. Son histoire personnelle est passionnante et en dit long sur son expertise. Etant guide à travers le monde et co-pilote d’hélicoptère de secours dans les Alpes, on se sent rassuré de le suivre hors des sentiers battus. Je recommande vivement d’être guidé par Goulven, surtout pour des randonnées techniques.
