Description

In spite of what you may think, steep skiing isn’t solely reserved for the professionals. Come and experience some of the world’s best steep skiing in Chamonix with me!

As long as you have a solid off-piste skiing foundation, we will find the perfect spot to get your adrenaline pumping and enjoy the steep skiing experience of a lifetime!

Starting from the iconic ski touring hub of Chamonix, we will head straight out into the French Alps, taking on steep couloirs and racing through some fo the world’s highest quality powder.

Depending on your experience, we will find the perfect spot to make our descent. As we go, I will be more than happy to share some tips with you in order to improve you technique and skills.

By the end of our 1+ day together, you will be ready to head out on even more steep skiing adventures!

Among the spots we may opt to explore are the Argentiere glacier and the Couloir Gervasutti, both of which offer stunning views of the surrounding Alps and even better steep skiing action.

However, we aren’t limited to just these two spots and depending on your ability level and weather conditions may choose from a number of other options as well.

So what are you waiting for? Book now for this fun and action-packed 1+ day steep skiing in Chamonix expedition!

About the guide

guide profile img

I’m an Aspirant Guide and member of the British Mountain Guides (BMG) and I am currently working towards obtaining my IFMGA badge.
I was born in Arlington, Virginia, in the United States. Aged 11 I moved to Lewes, East Sussex with my family for a change of scenery. I began climbing on the major sandstone outcrops of Sussex aged 17, but only began to passionately pursue climbing while at university in Nottingham. My passion for climbing, adventure and the odd dose of suffering, led me to move to permanently to Chamonix in 2009.
In the UK I have climbed hundreds of routes up to E4 and Scottish VII.
I have also climbed around one hundred alpine routes, from PDs to EDs.
I first strapped on a pair of planks aged 13 on a school trip to Austria. Within two years, I had reached the rarefied level of Ecole du Ski Francais Deux Etoile, winning several prestigious ski school slalom competitions along the way. This provided a solid foundation upon which to build on, and since living full time in the Alps (fist Tignes, now Chamonix), I have spent an unhealthy amount of time on very steep snowy slopes. In addition to skiing extreme descents, I also very much enjoy lift served freeriding and exploratory backcountry tours.
Feel free to get in touch with me, I'll be happy to guide you and help you reaching your next 'mountain' project ;)
