    I offer this wonderful ski program from La Rosiere or La Thuile in the beautiful virgin and scarcely descending slopes of Valgrisenche, Italy.

    This program is given as an indication. We can of course adapt it, both in terms of duration and location. I know the region very well .

    DAY 1

    We start from La Rosiere by mechanical lifts and descent to the Petit Saint Bernard pass. From there we take the helicopter which will take us to the top of Mont Miravidi or Ouiller (depending on the snow quality ). Then we descend to La Thuile Valley to go by helicopter to the Ruitor glacier.

    We will descend to the village of Bonne in the Valgrisenche valley , where we’ll spend the night at the Hotel Perret (boutique hotel at 100 meters from the DZ helicopter. Simple but very nice and authentic, excellent Italian food !!)

    DAY 2:

    After breakfast, we will go up by helicopter from the Valgrisenche base (100 meters from the hotel Perret). It will drop us off on the Giasson glacier, to descent to Valgrisenche valley. Then the helicopter will pick us up and drop us off at the Archeboc summit, which we will descend skiing to get to Sainte Foy Tarentaise.

    These helicopter drop off proposals are indicative and may be different depending on weather and “snow” safety conditions.

    We can also do only off-piste skiing from the ski lifts or ski touring, to try something different.

    If this kind of little ski adventure interests you, I invite you to contact me. I’d be happy to help you to discover this region that I know so well and lead you to my little ‘secret’ places

    What People are Saying about Jean-Marc Kaufmann


    Hello to all who like the intensity of amazing heights reached with sometimes a bit of sweat but so rewarding that the memories live in you year in or out. I travelled many times with Jean-Marc as guide. Heliskiing in Canada, Touring skiing (seals\' skin skiing) in Tromso, Spitzberg or more simply in ski resorts like France, Italy and Bulgaria. I recommend him for the complete trust in what he is sure I can do and his guiding ability on top of our sharing a good bear after the day\'s efforts (I am Belgian so ...). I even tried myself at 53 years\' old to a bit of climbing with \"Aiguille d\'Entrève\" and discovered a new ability. Great moments past and to come.

    Jean-Marc nous a guidé avec beaucoup de professionnalisme dans l\'ascension du Grand-Paradis cet été. Ce fut une très belle première expérience d\'alpinisme pour moi, en toute confiance. Les passionnantes discussions à bâtons-rompus comme le respect du silence (dans la longue descente) m\'ont paru précieux également.

    J’ai eu la chance de rencontrer Goulven et d’être guidé par lui sur le Grand Paradis en août 2014. C’est un super compagnon de cordée, un pro de la sécurité, un excellent leader, un défenseur de belles valeurs montagnardes et une personne très riche par le métier diversifié qu’il exerce, guide de haute montagne mais aussi copilote d’hélicoptère.
