Highlights

 
     

    If you aim to do La Patrouille des Glaciers (PDG) during April, take the time to prepare yourself to enjoy the race to the maximum. Whether it is for the small or the large route, we will share one or more days to tackle this race better.

    We will meet in the morning to check the equipment. Then we will go to one of the passages of the race (Verbier or Arolla for example). We will have a short summary on managing avalanches. In addition, we’ll address different topics depending on your needs.

    We can do this preparation together during several days. In this way, we get acclimatized and tackle more specific topics.

    Do you want to train for La Patrouille des Glaciers? Then please contact me! I would love to coach you, advise you and share my experience. This a magnificent racing experience in Valais.

    About the Guide

     
     

    Attracted by the mountains since childhood, I started with climbing and alpinism. I then discovered my passion for ski touring.
    I started a Young&Sport instructor training to lead young people in the mountain, accompanied by guides. This experience inspired me to become a mountain guide, and I got certified in September 2015.
    I work in a guide's office with other guides friends as Stéphane, Raphael, Christian and Jean-Luc, mountain leader.
    What I love the most: make people enjoy, allow them to discover a region, laughing, everything in a safe way.
    So if there's something you wish, if you dream of exploring a region or country, don't hesitate to contact me.
    See you soon for new discoveries!

    Yann is a Young, Energetic and Experienced mountain guide. We have been Touring for 4 days in the Jungfrau Region with very mixed weather conditions. Yann showed me his abilities to lead under very tough weather conditions. Although always looking for Adventure and Challenges, even under the tough weather conditions, he proved his experienced as a guide and knowledge of the region. Safety is always first and from there we strive for our limits. We had an amazing 4-days and future adventures with Yann have already been discussed! Definitely the guide i want to rely on high up the mountains!

    We discovered a great and safe touring trip at back Montfort via a small ascent on the “Mont Calme” with our guide Yann. We had great powder and great fun and felt very safe thanks to the experience of our guide Yann. Do not hesitate to hire him!
