First, we will ascend to the Grands Montets glacier in Argentiere on one of the cable cars. Then, on the high glacier we will go over the essentials: how to put on crampons, use an ice exe and arrest a fall. After, we will ski down to the Argentiere glacier and put on our skins to climb towards the Refuge d’Argentière hut (2769 m).

I am in the mountains all year-round, either guiding a trip or exploring on my own. Mountain guiding is not only my profession and passion but also my inner calling. I am a qualified IFMGA mountain and ski guide.
In 2012, I established my mountaineering school "Mountains" with the motto: Quality guiding on snow, rock and ice. You can count on a low client to guide ratio, reliable gear and high quality programs led by our talented team of guides. We are not adrenaline junkies - we put safety first and strive to meet and exceed all of our clients' needs.
We take great pride in having more than 30% returning clients and would be thrilled to welcome you to our "Mountains" family during your next rock, snow or ice adventure!
