Ski Touring in the Alps. 1-day trip w/ a IFMGA/UIAGM certified mountain guide

Not specified

Alps

1 Day

Jan, Feb, Mar, Apr, Dec


Description

Skiing where no one goes, away from the crowds of the stations, it is possible, it’s ski touring.

A system of movable bindings and seal skin under the skis opens up vast powder fields and majestic landscapes. Every Alpine massif offers numerous ski touring courses. For example: Belledonne, Ecrins or Aiguilles Rouges massifs.

Concretely:

– 1 to 6 people per guide (depending on the difficulty of the race).

– Activity for the day or for a raid (night in mountain hut).

– Good fitness required and enough technical skiing to be at ease in all kind of snow.

– Equipment not provided. Many rental opportunities in all resorts and mountain towns.

I invite you to contact me if a good and extraordinary outing tempts you, whether beginner or experienced. I’d be happy to take you to beautiful places and make you live a unique experience.

Accommodation

More info

Price: The classic price of a guide day in winter is 350 euros (to be divided between the number of participants). Some longer more difficult stunts have a specific rate. I will base my price on currently practiced rates. Feel free to ask me a price estimate.

Equipment may be loaned, subject to availability.

Insurance: My professional liability insurance covers my civil responsability on the terrain and the costs of research and potential relief for me and my clients. However, you must have too a "civil liability" insurance, research fees, rescue and medical expenses for the activities concerned.

Booking: For any reservation, a deposit of 20% of the total sum of guide services are demanded. It will be paid no later than 30 days before the start of the course. The rest of the sum will be paid at the end of the course.

About the guide

UIAGM / IFMGA High Mountain Guide
As a Belgian who moved to Grenoble in 2005, I don't get tired of living in the heart of the mountains.
Nothing tied me to the mountain... I was born on March 27th 1983 near Brussels. As many Belgian kids, I played football and judo. I wanted to practice climbing but my mother didn't want me to. "Too far!", she used to say, "you can do it when you are in college". And so I did (we have to listen to our mothers!). When I was 18, I started studying History and I joined the climbing room in Louvain-la-Neuve. Two disciplines that came into my live and stayed forever. Climbing, I did my first 5a, then 6a. I started going to cliffs in a small Belgian rock (Yvoir), my first large climb was in l'Offre at Verdon, and then my first mountain course was the unforgettable epic Snow Dome in the Ecrins.
I barely knew how to put on crampons or how to tie a knot, but I had decided to become a high mountain guide. In 2005 I finished my History studies, left Belgium and started my adventure in the mountain. Training, mountain courses, skiing... In 2007, I was a member of the National Excellence Alpinism Team of the French Alpine Club. That's when I met many people in my wavelength, a great feeling that encouraged us to go on a thousand adventures in the Alps, the Himalaya and elsewhere.
In 2009, I started studying to be a high mountain guide in the National Ski and Alpinism School at Chamonix (ENSA). My dream has come true!
I always keep dreaming of summits, edges, expeditions... There is enough to fill 10 lifes, so let's start now! Either with my friends or as your guide, the mountain is always a pleasure.
