Description

Do you want to make the most out of your time skiing in the Alps? then don’t doubt about it, this Intensive freeride training weekend in Chamonix/Verbier area is what you’re looking for!

The Chamonix/Verbier area is one of the most exclusive places to ski in the world. This region between France and Switzerland has so many amazing spots with fresh powder and beautiful surroundings that it’s difficult to chose where to go in a simple visit.

That’s why in this intensive program I’ll take you through many different terrains, from high alpine glaciers to deep forest runs. It doesn’t matter if you ski or snowboard, this trip will make you push your off-piste limits. I’ll make sure you progress a lot in a short amount of time!

So, to make the most out of you stay you’ll be sleeping in the Bekker Chalet, my own ski lodge with wellness facilities, that is located in the border of Switzerland and France, and it’s very close to many great skiing spots in both countries like Chamonix, les Marécottes and Verbier.

So send me a request for this Intensive freeride training weekend and let me know your dates, number of participants, ski level, goals and wishes. Remember that kids are welcome and this could be an amazing family experience.

And if you have more time to enjoy this amazing area, you might also be interested in my Mont Blanc 6-day guided ski safari tour and my Haute Route, Chamonix – Zermatt, 8 Day Ski Tour.

About the guide

guide profile img

In 1987 I became a certified mountain guide after an intense four-year training program at the Technical University of Munich, thus becoming the first guide from the Netherlands to be IFMGA-certified and probably worldwide one of the first guides not originating from an alpine country. As a guide, I do everything from beginner courses in the Alps to worldwide climbing expeditions to the Seven Summits.

Based in Switzerland, just a few kilometers from the French town of Chamonix, I offer customized programs, tailor-made for each of my clients. As an alpinist and mountain guide, I’ve participated in many succesful expeditions, including Mt. Everest (north and south sides), Cho Oyu and Shisha Pangma (Tibet), Aconcagua (Argentina), Yerupaja South Face and Huascaran (Peru), Ojos del Salado (Chile), Mt Hunter and Denali (Alaska), Elbrus (Russia) Carstensz Pyramid (West Papoua) and Kilimanjaro (Tanzania). I’ve led two UIAA expeditions for talented young climbers: one in China and one in Pakistan. Both were very successful and led to the opening of some new (and sometimes difficult) routes. I’m always looking for new and challenging ski areas and, in recent years, have specialized in ski safaris and ski touring in the Alps, Morocco, Canada, Chile and Scandinavia. Adventure skiing is my passion since a long time and the challenge is to find the best snow and safe skiing and have fun with the group in a remote location. A father of 2, in my spare time, I like to go skiing, mountain biking and climbing with friends and family.
