    The country of powder. The country where skis are essential. The country where everything is immense: the mountains, the trucks, the roads, the burgers. Welcome to Yukon Territory, at the northwest of Canada.

    I invite you to join me on a week-long trip surrounded by the purest air and the best powder snow. We will sleep at mountain cabins and do our own cooking in wood-burning stoves. We will also spend three days at the Tatshenshini-Alsek Park, exploring infinite routes and sleeping in a hut at night.

    At White Pass, we will ski down from the summits that border the valley, and enjoy the most amazing views. And we will set up our base in a magic place, just at the edge of a frozen lake.

    The tour demands a good ski and fitness level, though extensive ski touring experience is not required. Everyday, we will climb between 800 and 1,500 meters. But as the massif is vast, it is always possible to ski an extra slope, even up to 2,500 meters.

    So, if you’d like to enjoy great ski in the Trappers territory, please contact me and book your spot.

    About the Guide

     
     

    I have been a mountain guide since I was 25 years old. My passion for discovering the mountains of the world has led me to the four corners of the earth. Currently, I am also an instructor at the National School of Skiing and Mountaineering (ENSA).

    Each year, I organize different trips. I'm in charge of each trip's organization and I'm sometimes also the guide who leads the group. It could either be me or one of my 4 guide friends, who I have been working with for years.

    I have been organizing trips around the world for the past 26 years: Alaska, Antractica, Nepal, Mongolia...Over the years, I have organized trips in more than 30 countries.

    In recent years I have had the opportunity to discover:
    - Ski traverse in Greenland
    - Ski touring in Iran, Lebanon, Mongolia, Argentina, Canada
    - Climbing in the Yukon at the Lotus Flower, Jordan, Oman
    - The high summits of Sichuan, Kula Kangri in Tibet, Langtang Ri in Nepal

    I am currently based in Chamonix and the other 3 guides who work with me live nearby as well. If you are interested in traveling far away or discovering the Mont Blanc massif and other places in the Alps, for climbing, ski touring or ice climbing, please contact me. It will be a pleasure for me to organise a trip that meets your expectations.
