Type of Trip
Discover the winter mountain practicing a fun and playful activity in Chamonix.
When the cold winter comes, the water turns to ice, and it is possible to climb these ephemeral lines.
In Chamonix, each ice climbing is different for its formation. Therefore, we can find a large the variety of forms (columns, bosses, jellyfish, curtains, free-standing …).
This is what makes ice climbing so rich and always brings new sensations.
I invite you to come with me to the escalation which will surely not leave you indifferent! Please contact me for more information. Another way to enjoy what the winter offers us is this Freeride ski trip at Les Portes du Soleil.

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.
- For ice climbing, it is useful to have several layers of clothing to be always dry, so it is imperative to take two pairs of gloves.
- For more advanced trips I will take only up to 2 people.
About the Guide
The Jura massif is an ideal place to learn and grow your experience in alpine techniques. I practice mountaineering, ski touring and ice climbing in the winter. I am also located very close to the Swiss and French alpine massifs.
First, I started as a ski rescuer. My passion for skiing and climbing helped me discover the classic routes in the mythical summits of the Alps. The first mountain courses I went on with friends as a guide - which I did with a lot of effort, doubts and perseverance - were much needed to build my experience. Still, they also gave me a lot of joy, and I was able to pursue them while laughing and creating beautiful moments shared.
My experience and terrain knowledge will allow you to move safely and enjoy your time, without a promise of the summit but of sharing a privileged and unique moment in the mountains.
Finally, I'm a fully certified IFMGA mountain guide.
