Highlights

 
     

    If you are visiting the Chamonix valley this winter you cannot miss skiing at the Vallee Blanche.

    The world famous Vallee Blanche needs a little introduction for having the finest off-spite runs in the Chamonix Valley. It is accessible from the top of Aiguille du Midi going over a 20km route that offers a vertical drop of about 300 meters.

    The Chamonix Valley receives visitants all year round but I strongly recommend the spring season which is the best when it comes to weather conditions.

    But the delight of this destination does not only rely on the altitude and good snow. There are many other highlights that makes this place unique:

    • The well known starting point from the summit (Aiguille du Midi) of the 3842m high;
    • The numerous glaciers that lead to the Mer de Glace or Sea of Ice;
    • The Vallee Blanche and it’s 23km of snow ice and rock;
    • The cableway offering perfect views of the most majestic sceneries of its natural beauties;
    • Numerous options for any levels of skier;
    • The best powder snow of the area.

    Although there are options for any level of skiers I have planned this trip for expert skiers and split boarders with some previous backcountry, off-piste or heliskiing experience. Previous mountaineering experience is a plus but not obligatory. Good physical condition it is mandatory.

    Both the cost and the dates are customized depending on the itinerary that you choose. So if you are interested in visiting the most demanded off-piste runs of the world, do not hesitate and get in contact with me. It would be my pleasure to go on this adventure with you!

    Please note that this is a private program. Unfortunately, for the time being, I don’t have any group departures planned.

    About the Guide

     
     

    IFMGA/UIAGM Mountain Guide

    I am a professional mountain & ski guide. I have been guiding now since 1994. I have always been into the mountains – skiing at age 4 and secretly sneaking away for overnight bivouacs in the mountains behind my parents house. At age 13, I decided to pursue my airy scrambles for something that looked a bit more fun. I went to work as an assistant bringing out other young teenagers on exciting hiking and more importantly to me, climbing outings. One thing led to another and before I knew it my world revolved around the mountains.

    At the age of 18 I moved to France to pursue my passions, later becoming actively involved with the French Alpine Club in Dijon and organizing outings and putting up climbing routes here and there in Burgundy.

    In 1992, I entered the infamous ENSA or French guides school in Chamonix and became the first American to receive international certification (UIAGM/IFMGA) through this prestigious school.

    Since then I have been making my living as a full time professional guide, climbing and skiing in many of the worlds great mountain ranges. I speak fluent French, some Italian and I am now learning German.

    Previously I have worked as a technical consultant for Petzl, and Grivel.

    If you are looking for a great adventure, skiing or climbing, please get in touch with and let's discuss about it.
