Highlights

 
     
    I’m organizing this one-day ski tour to Mait d’Aimunt for experienced and fit skiers who want to spend an amazing time in one of the wildest area of the Queyras valley.

    Mait d’Aimunt (2804 m) is located at the border of France and Italy, at the end of the Queyras mountain range. I enjoy very much guiding my friends and clients there because…

    • This ski itinerary is very wild and deserted from the other skiers due to its location and its level of difficulty (1200 meters of positive gain in one day);
    • The snow is very often of high quality because of the location of the area being covered of powder by the winds coming from the East;
    • The landscape is breathtaking. When reaching the summit of Mait d’Aimunt, you’ll enjoy on one side the view on Mount Viso and its alpine environment and on the other side, the Pô Plain.

    I’m organizing many different programs and itineraries for 1-day ski tours in the Queyras valley. This one is dedicated to advanced skiers having a good level of fitness. In some parts, we will ski down slopes of more than 35°.

    In order to maximize the safety, we will go there only if the snow conditions are stable. If they are not, we will choose from the several other ski touring itineraries that the area offers.

    Doing this one-day ski tour can be a very good option for the ones doing a ski week in the resorts of the region such as Abriès, Saint-Véran, Ceillac, Arvieux, Risoul, Vars… Get out of the crowd for one day and connect with deep wild nature !

    If you are interested to come with me for the Mait d’Aimunt ski tour or any other in the Queyras, for one or several days, don’t hesitate to get in touch with me. We can discuss about your wishes, your ski level and the different options we have to spend an unique time here together.

    It will be a great pleasure for me to guide you in this valley that I know very well and share with you my passion and experience as a local guide.

    About the Guide

     
     

    I'm a fully certified IFMGA mountain guide from Les Hautes Alpes. I'm based very close to the National Park of Queyras.
    I was born in a farm in Haute Savoie. I grew up with cows and when I was 1 1/2 years old, I climbed my first mountain...Nooo, I'm just kidding !
    I come from Paris and I actually started sailing before mountaineering. I studied in a business school and I realized few years later that actually, my passion was not to sit behind a computer all day but to guide friends and clients in the mountains.
    I now live in Les Hautes Alpes and I'll be happy to bring you up there and let you live an unique time. So please contact me and let's start planning a mountain trip you would like to do, during the winter or the summer, for 1/2 or several days !

    Mon fils Maxime est revenu enchanté de sa journée hors-pistes avec Damien : « Trop Cooooool » furent ses premiers mots en rentrant au chalet J ! Cette journée fut une totale découverte pour lui, puisqu’il n’avait jamais expérimenté le vrai hors-piste. Très belle expérience pour lui, et malgré la fatigue au retour, il en redemandera, c’est certain. Merci à Damien pour cette journée que Maxime n’est pas prêt d’oublier !

    Petite journée de ski rando dans le vallon du Crachet, puis Col du Crachet (col de Vars). Temps magnifique, 20cm de poudreuse tombée la veille. Bref des conditions idéales. Damien s’est parfaitement adapté au groupe (certains ayant déjà fait des raids à ski, d’autres étant débutants). Une montée à allure modérée mais constante. Tout au long de la progression, Damien nous parle des sommets avoisinants, des vallées adjacentes,... Des tours & autres raids possibles dans des endroits plus sauvages, moins fréquentés, ... Je suis maintenant incollable sur la Barre de la Pisse ou des sommets de l’Eyssina, qui avoisinent tous les 3000m d’altitude. Nous avons aussi fait des exercices pour détecter des victimes en cas d’avalanche. Des petits rappels toujours très utiles... Damien est vraiment quelqu’un d’ouvert, gentil et toujours à l’écoute des membres du groupe. Je n’hésiterai pas à refaire appel à ses services !
