About the guide

Former ski resort manager, my passion for mountain wilderness has led me to become a Guide 20 years ago. Since then, I have had the same pleasure guiding to iconic summits. As La Bérarde Guides' office President, Les Ecrins are among my favorite destinations for skiing, climbing and moutaineering all year around.

I will enjoy very much guiding you in a matter of discovery, pedagogy and security on the highest summits in the Alpes. Look forward to meeting you !
