    Hoping to explore the best spots in Espace Killy in the French Alps? Looking to improve your skills or refine your style? Skiing with a guide allows you to make the most of your time skiing in the Haute Tarentaise region. I or another instructor that works with me can create a program to perfectly suit your needs and wishes.

    I live in Sainte Foy, so I know Haute Tarentaise very well. And I really enjoy guiding my friends and clients here. My favorite thing to do is show them around my secret ski spots where we can connect with real nature and be far away from popular areas.

    You can come alone, with your friends and/or with your family to enjoy a good time, experience something new, and learn new things. It will be my pleasure to have you here and show you around. But because I lead many other mountain trips around the world, I might not be available to guide you during the dates you request. In that case another expert guide at the ski school will take my place.

    The program will be defined based on your ski level, your wishes and the snow / weather conditions.

    Contact me and let’s plan your next guided ski day here!

    In addition, you can check out some of my other amazing trips, like ski tours in Norway and Morocco.

    What People are Saying about Jean-Marc Kaufmann


    Hello to all who like the intensity of amazing heights reached with sometimes a bit of sweat but so rewarding that the memories live in you year in or out. I travelled many times with Jean-Marc as guide. Heliskiing in Canada, Touring skiing (seals\' skin skiing) in Tromso, Spitzberg or more simply in ski resorts like France, Italy and Bulgaria. I recommend him for the complete trust in what he is sure I can do and his guiding ability on top of our sharing a good bear after the day\'s efforts (I am Belgian so ...). I even tried myself at 53 years\' old to a bit of climbing with \"Aiguille d\'Entrève\" and discovered a new ability. Great moments past and to come.

    Jean-Marc nous a guidé avec beaucoup de professionnalisme dans l\'ascension du Grand-Paradis cet été. Ce fut une très belle première expérience d\'alpinisme pour moi, en toute confiance. Les passionnantes discussions à bâtons-rompus comme le respect du silence (dans la longue descente) m\'ont paru précieux également.

    J’ai eu la chance de rencontrer Goulven et d’être guidé par lui sur le Grand Paradis en août 2014. C’est un super compagnon de cordée, un pro de la sécurité, un excellent leader, un défenseur de belles valeurs montagnardes et une personne très riche par le métier diversifié qu’il exerce, guide de haute montagne mais aussi copilote d’hélicoptère.
