Description

The Chamonix valley is an ideal base camp for an off-piste week or weekend, and includes some of the most mythical places of the Alps, including Les Grands Montets, above Argentière.

Les Grands Montets offer numerous descent possibilities, all accessible through cablecar. We reach the valley by different routes (including the famous Pas de Chèvre).

La Vallée Blanche is the most famous descent of the massif for the beauty of its landscapes and the amplitude of the itinerary. We can also go to the beautiful off-piste slopes in Brévent and Flégère. They tend to be less frequented than the Grands Montets when it has just snowed.

Courmayeur, in the Italian side of Mont Blanc, offers a good fallback in case of bad weather on the French side.

The Swiss Verbier station isn't far either. It offers fantastic freeride options.

In short, all of these options allow us to easily fill a fun off-piste skiing week in Chamonix.  We will discover the freedom of skiing in wild spaces leaving from the ski lifts. We will also enjoy the best snow away from the crowds.

Once in Chamonix, you can certainly include an off-piste day in your skiing holiday week. You can also plan a weekend or week fully dedicated to off-piste. It can either be in one resort, or exploring different areas. The choice is yours!

It is important for all participants to be in good physical shape, and be comfortable skiing off-piste. Snow conditions vary at each outing. Each participant will have an AVD and a harness for glacier skiing.

Don't hesitate to send me a request if you are planning to come to Chamonix next winter. I can guide you in the discovery of new places, far from the crowds, with the best snow!

 I also offer a ski tour of the gorgeous Vallee Blanche.

About the guide

I grew up far from the mountains, and I didn't imagine what was waiting for me...
When I was 17, I had the first symptoms: I left without second guessing it my foreign tongues studies and I settled at Briançon, in the Hautes-Alpes, to satiate my passion for snowboarding. I practiced non-stop for some winters, spending the "summers" in the southern hemisphere.
The virus started spreading: my love for large spaces led me to get certified as a mountain leader.
During 10 years, I spent my summers taking groups to discover the most beautiful hikes around the Ecrins massif.
During this time, I discovered alpinism and a there was a new spark in my eyes. The diagnostic came fast: I was severely passionate about the mountains. Since then I never stopped dreaming of every kind of ascent, and I organised my everyday life to try to achieve many of them.
I learned to appreciate equally the end of the mountain journey and the friend or rope parter with whom I share my trips. After 10 years going through paths with hiking groups and with a fierce desire to go higher, I started studying to become a High Mountain Guide. I became IFMGA-certified in August, 2017.
Today I propose to travel this path, leading us sometimes to a summit, to admire the vastness of the horizon, taking us to something simple, pure and essential.
My head is filled with memories and projects, and I would be thrilled to share one with you. But I'm also here to help you turn your own project into a reality.
