Highlights

 
     

    Finhaut is a beautiful mountain town that faces the Trient Glacier in the Alps. One of its many attractive features is that it is quieter than other destinations in the area. However, it is also very close to, for example, Valais or Chamonix. Consequently, it offers the best of the Alps, i.e. skiing opportunities, but with less tourism. Of course, this also means that you need someone who knows the area to show you around. On these ski touring excursions in Finhaut, I propose to do just that.

    Options in the area are varied. We can tour to the stunning Emosson Dam. This is a beautiful reservoir close to Martigny. Other alternatives include taking a short train ride to Vallorcine and exploring the Mont Blanc range, or the Les Marecottes ski resort. Whichever path we decide upon, the focus will be on catering to your interests and also revealing some of the hidden gems of this beautiful location. 

    Skiing in the Alps usually involves some previous experience and a good level of fitness. However, as we can arrange ski tours to fit your abilities and needs, all levels are welcome. Whichever route we decide to take, I will of course at all times be there to assist and guide you.

    Are you ready to explore a stunning off the beaten path location in the beautiful Alps? Then book your place now and join me on a ski tour in the Finhaut area!

    About the Guide

     
     

    I was born in a small ski village in the Swiss Alps and was immersed in the climbing culture through my parents at a young age. After three years competing in the ice climbing world cup and after graduating from law school, I decided to pursue climbing professionally, both as a guide and as a professional alpinist.

    My passion for everything relating to the mountains - alpine climbing, ice climbing, skiing, skimo races, rock climbing, etc. - has taken me all over the world, doing first ascents and repeated beautiful climbs in places such as Canada, Ethiopia, Norway, Jordan, Iceland, Antarctica, Morocco, Thailand and more. But some of my greatest climbs have been here in the Alps, climbing the north faces of the Eiger, Matterhorn, Grandes Jorasses and Drus, or Beyond Good and Evil in Chamonix. What I love most though is climbing big frozen waterfalls.

    Through guiding, I get to share my love for the mountains, as well as my skills and knowledge with guests around the world, in the alpine, on ice, rock or on skis. What I love about my job in the Alps is that I get to speak so many different languages - English, French, Italian, German - as the mountains sit on or close to borders.

    The mountains are my passion and have been my way of life for most of my life. It is a community I am proud to belong to. And on this journey, I have met my husband and fellow mountain guide, Adam. We love working together. We live in Finhaut - a small Swiss village right the French-Swiss border between Chamonix and Verbier - with our lovely daughter Olivia. We have access to beautiful climbing and ski touring right from our doorstep and are close to world class terrain in France, Switzerland and Italy in a matter of minutes!

    When I am not guiding, I play for myself in the mountains, work on translations, blog and love to rediscover the wonders of the world through the eyes of my daughter.
