Description

Les Crosets is a very small and charming resort located in the Swiss Alps. With an altitude of 1,670 meters, it has a microclimate and allows great ski opportunities. During this trip, I will guide you to a unique experience focusing on freeride or ski touring.

If you prefer freeride skiing, we will use skins only for short walks from the lifts. We will reach stunning off-piste runs with exceptional snow. But if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of mechanized lifts and crowded slopes, we should focus on ski touring. After walking and climbing uphill, we will discover amazing untracked terrain.

Furthermore, Les Crostes offers splendid views of some unique alpine landscapes. It is located at the foot of Dents Du Midi, a multi-summit mountain of the Chablais Alps. The highest of its seven peaks reaches 3,257 meters.  

Les Crosets is part of Les Portes du Soleil (“Gates of the sun”, in French), a major winter destination with more than ten ski resorts, on the border between France and Switzerland. Les Crosets is right in the middle of this enormous ski area, so it has the best access to all the different circuits.

If you arrange for more days we can visit Avoriaz, Morzine and Châtel in the French area, and Morgins and Champéry in the Swiss side.

So, if you are up for this exciting winter adventure, get in touch with me! We will have an unforgettable freeride and ski touring experience in the Alps!

And if you prefer to explore one of the French ski resorts of Les Portes du Soleil, you should check out my Châtel ski touring and freeride day trips.

Mountain 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.

An excellent guide, who planned an amazing route and combined technical instruction with local knowledge to provide a very enjoyable day of skiing that improved my off-piste skills and gave me confidence to try lines that I would never consider alone.

Nous sommes partis 2 jours avec Benjamin. C’était fantastique de découvrir une autre façon de faire du ski. Benjamin est un gars super sympa et sécurisant. On a passé deux belles journées avec lui. Un regret : Que l’on ne découvre qu’à 54 balais la randonnée à ski. Qui sait !! On prendra peut-être goût à l’alpinisme à 70 ans. Merci à Explore-Share.com de nous avoir présenté Benjamin. Il est sûrement à conseiller à d’autres candidats.

I am really, really happy with both Explore-share.com’s service and their recommendation of guide Benjamin Souflot. Benjamin was extremely personable, and more importantly knowledgeable. Benjamin recommended where to rent ski gear and the proper gear for the day. He had crampons for my boots, ropes and other safety gear needed. I showed up at the meeting spot early, and Benjamin was already there waiting. On the gondola ride up to Aiguille du Midi, he talked safety and what to expect. When we got up to the top, it was very windy and intimidating. As Benjamin prepared the gear for our descent, he talked safety, strategy and was reassuring that it would be a fun, safe adventure. As I look down the face of the Ridgeline, I became nervous and anxious. Benjamin was very reassuring that it was going to be OK, that I was safe with him and we would make it down. Sure enough, Benjamin literally “talked me off the ledge” and we proceeded down. Benjamin was focused & guided me the entire time. Once we started skiing, Benjamin gave great instructions as to where to ski, what to expect ahead, etc. He was very knowledgeable about the mountain. When we took breaks, Benjamin shared with me interesting facts about where we were, in the mountains France, Italy, Mount Blanc, the crevasses, various peaks, history of the glacier, etc. I had a great experience! I would definitely do this trip again with Benjamin. I would also recommend this trip to anyone else with Benjamin and your company, Explore-share.com. Thank you again! -John
