Discover the best spots in the mythical Grand Saint Bernard pass and improve your ski touring skills with Sébastien, IFMGA certified mountain guide.
Feb, Mar, Apr
Please join me for this unique 4-day ski touring program to the Grand Saint Bernard pass at the border of Switzerland and Italy. This place is cut off from the world more than 7 months a year.
We will be staying 2 nights at the Hospice du Grand Saint Bernard. It’s a magic and confortable place with a very welcoming management. We will finish the cross-country ski tour with a night in the Plan du Jeu refuge. In addition, we will ascend to the Hannibal pass.
This great adventure at Saint Bernard is dedicated to people who already have a fairly good level of off-piste skiing. You also need to have at lease some ski touring experience.
Please find below the program I usually propose. I can of course adapt it based on your time here and on your wishes. The snow and weather conditions might also force us to change it a little.
During this 4-day tour, I will give you the necessary explanations and trainings in order for you to:
– improve your ski touring level;
– assess and manage risks linked to off-piste skiing;
– use efficiently the ARVA (Appareil de Recherche de Victime en Avalanche), the shovel and the probe.
If you are interested by this program, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me. I will guide you there with much pleasure.

Super semaine avec Sébastien et Guillaume. Très partant pour refaire un stage!!!
Unforgettable experience, thanks to our guide Sebastien we reached the summit, he prepared us not only with the required skills also with the psychological strength for such an emblematic summit. Also we want to thank Gauthier (from Explore-Share) for his help preparing this expedition.
It was my first ski touring experience in high montainous areas: it was just unique thanks notably to the way Sébastien managed us in a very professional way. He inspired confidence in our group while this was the very first time for three among us. Congrats.
Nous avons passé trois jours entre Chamonix et La Clusaz, quelques classiques dans les aiguilles rouges et une belle journée au début du massif des Aravis. Nous avons particulièrement apprecié Sébastien pour ces choix en rapport avec notre niveau, sa patience, sa pédagogie juste quand il faut, pro et sympathique,de très bons moments en montagne, sportifs et conviviaux.
Thanks a lot Sebastien for helping us in getting ready to ascent the Mont Blanc and for letting us discover the incredible Vallée Blanche. It has been an unique experience that we will probably never forget. I hope we can climb an other mountain soon together. Take care. Gauthier
Sebastien was very professional in guiding us to the top of Mont Blanc! Great atmosphere within the group thanks to his great character. I highly recommend him for anyone wanting to clim the Mont Blanc, no matter his level. Thanks again, Sebastien!
Sébastien taught us all the bases of glacier climbing. We spent nice days with him in the Vallée Blanche and Mont-Blanc area. He was very patient and pedagogue. Thanks to him we could discover great little summit close to Aiguille du Midi!
