If you ever visit Les 3V Philippe is the guy to meet. He knows every corner, has the most updated information and chances are he can get you to a few dream rides even in bad weather conditions. Also makes you feel secure up there. And he is also a fun guy! Seriously, top professional. Cheers Philippe! See you next time i make it to Europe in winter. Ah and thanks for teaching Ashley here how to ski so sometimes he can even follow me!

Philippe was my first ski touring guide. He made me discover in the best manner a new side of skiing. Pure days of powder in little known slopes of the 3 Vallées in France.

I've been skiing with Philippe since many years now mainly in the 3 Vallées in France near Albertville. He helped me in achieving one of my goals which was to climb the Mount Blanc. Philippe yet again many thanks.

I got the chance to leave several time with Philippe for one-day ski touring expeditions in the area of "Les 3 Vallées" in France. It's each time such a pleasure to be guided by him: very friendly, great humour, always looking for the nice itinerary where nobody goes, available whenever needed to help, super professional... Thanks Philippe for such great moments in the mountains. See you next winter!
