    Why not including one or more days off-piste in your next ski holiday week in the Hautes Alpes? Serre Chevalier is located just on the other side of the Lautaret pass. This large ski resort also offers many descent itineraries far from the pistes.

    The weather in the Hautes Alpes is often sunny, but the snow is worthy of the Northern Alps. Our starting places are usually Briançon or La Grave.

    Off-piste or freeride skiing gives you the freedom to ski in wild spaces from ski lifts. We go in search of the best snow far from the crowds. It’a a true pleasure to draw our ephemeral trace on the mountain.

    Off-piste skiing also consists of getting to know and trying to minimize the risks of the mountains in the winter. It may be an opportunity for training in the use of safety equipment (AVD).

    It may also be interesting to enjoy a week off-piste to have one or two days of ski touring (initiation or longer route)…

    From Serre Chevalier or La Grave, it’s possible to combine off-piste ski and ski touring accessible from the lifts. Some examples: Dômes de Monétier crossing, north couloir of Rocher Bouchard, touring Râteau by Enfetchores

    Off-piste skiing is for all levels. However, it’s ideally for skiers that are comfortable on red pistes and are in good physical shape. You don’t need to have off-piste experience.

    We can leave for a day, a weekend or a week.

    The best period for off-piste skiing in the Hautes Alpes runs from December to April. Of course, it will depend on the snow!

    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.

    Julia was great! She let me explore myself and challenged me at the same time. She helped me to develop my mountaineering skills at my level. She respected my wishes and selected the best projects. I really enjoyed 3 days of mountaineering with Julia 👍.

    We thought Julia was wonderful.  Supportive, fun, and knew all the right places to take us despite the weather and being later in the day. We would use Julia again when we have the opportunity to come back and do our dream tour, Vallee Blanche
