Description

Verbier in the Valais, is worldwide known for its freeride and off piste skiing. There are lift-assisted runs for skiers of just about any level: together with a IFMGA mountain guide, try the Mt Fort “backside”, Mt Gelé, Stairways to heaven… And who knows? You may just find yourself nailing the Bec des Rosses like those «extreme» guys on TV!

I’m a local mountain guide and I have lots of knowledge and expertise to help you enjoy the best powder snow.

If you aren’t ready for steep and deep powder, start slowly and learn off-piste skiing at your pace with our patient but fun mountain guides.

If you come in the Valais next winter and if you want to try skiing off the beaten tracks, please get in touch with me. I will arrange for you one or several days of guided off piste / freeride skiing in Verbier, with myself or with a mountain guide from our team.

You can also combine freeride with a bit of ski touring / backcountry skiing going into places were very few skiers go and enjoy great moments in the wilderness of the Valais region.

Heliskiing could also be an option and go together in some of the best skiing spots of the area like Trient, Petit Combin, Rosablanche or Pigne d’Arolla.

About the guide

I have been the owner of the mountain guide office since 2004. My father was a mountain guide and I grew up in the Val d’ Hérens. I live now for many years in Verbier. I graduated from the l'école hôtelière de Lausanne in 1993 and then began my mountain guide training. Well travelled I have guided through the mountains of the Andes, the Himalayas, Alaska, Turkey and Greenland. I'm also a Swiss Snow Sports graduate and a dual paragliding pilot.

Cher Gilbert, Juste un petit mot pour vous remercier au nom de mon fils Axel pour cette merveilleuse journée que vous lui avez fait passer dans nos belles montagnes valaisannes. En plus avec un groupe sympathique, c’est une journée qui restera gravé dans sa mémoire avant qu’il ne reparte hier soir pour reprendre le cours de ses études. En vous réitérant mes remerciements, Meilleures salutations,

Hi Gilbert, I wanted to drop you and Cédric a thank you note. You have had a crazy patience with all my complicated wishes and you really helped making it happen. I really appreciated you help and it was a super great experience, something I will not forget. We felt extremely comfortable with your guidance and hopefully there will be a chance to go on another tour in the future. I am now officially addicted to the deep snow experience J. If you need a client statement from you on your website or anything, just let me know. Happy to do so. I can also post something on social media…. Cheers and thanks again!
