    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.

    More info

    - 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.

    We had booked Ben for a single day and weather did not play nice: rain in the valley, snowfall and high winds on the summits. Hence, we were locked down to a single slope. Ben still made this an awesome day with lots of off-piste dives wherever possible, some avalanche training in between and good advice and powder exercises as he\'s simply an excellent skier. On top of that he is a great person and also available as guide in Chamonix and 4Vallee. Full recommendation!
