    Are you an adrenaline-junkie who’s always looking for the next big thrill? Then this steep skiing and couloirs course was especially designed for you!

    Come ski down the most exciting slopes in the Alps with a local guide who knows all the secret spots. We can arrange a 1 or 2-day program in the Ecrins, my favorite white playground! If you prefer, I could also take you to the Chamonix backcountry terrain, another one of my favorite ski areas in France.

    Two or three people can take this course together, mainly for safety reasons. Above all, participants should have a very good technical level.

    You need significant experience to be able to ski down steep slopes and couloirs: no improvisation is possible on this course! For this reason, depending on your skiing ability, we might start with easier runs and gradually increase difficulty.

    We’ll find the best conditions from January to May, so make sure to plan ahead and reserve your spot. This magical experience skiing the best steep slopes and couloirs in the Ecrins will stay engraved in your memory forever. Price will depend on your wishes so please contact me to request a quote!

    I also offer freeride skiing day trips in La Grave, so make sure you check it out as well!

    Contact me and I’ll be happy to answer all your questions regarding this course. The Ecrins’ slopes are waiting for you. This adrenaline-filled experience will be just what you were hoping for!

    About the Guide

     
     

    I was born in 1990 and I am based in Toulon. I am a high mountain guide and photographer. I started loving climbing during my youth, and I later discovered alpinism. This took me to visit many paths in the Alps, as well as expeditions. At the same time, I became a high mountain guide when I was 24 because I loved it and wanted to share my passion.
    I like to travel and I offer my services in the French massifs (Mercantour, Hautes Alpes, Chamonix) and abroad (Switzerland, Italy) all year long. I will do my best to enrich your journey with my experience and to guide you to reach you dream summit.

     
     
     

     

    What People are Saying about Robin Revest

     

    Climbing w Robin in the Gorges Verdon area was a dream come true. Robin is a fun guide to be with. He\'s very knowledgeable of the routes very safe in his practice and a very strong climber who makes it look easy. We did 2 long multi pitch routes that make me want to come back again and bring my friends.

    Avec Robin, j\'ai eu la chance de faire l\'ascension du Mont-Blanc depuis le Nid d\'Aigle. Il a su s\'adapter à ma demande qui était de faire l\'AR en une journée. Chose parfaitement exécutée. De plus il propose le prêt du matériel. Je recommande vivement, en plus d\'être professionnel et pédagogue il est super sympa !

    The trip with Robin was awesome! I didn\'t have a car, so he provided transportation to and back from the climbing spots, which is really nice. The weather in Verdon was not good during the trip, so we ended up climbing some beautiful routes in les Calanques and Cap Canaille. Robin knows the area and the routes well, so he selected the ones that was within my ability but also felt challenging. Robin also took a lot of nice photos along the way, introduced and explained the routes/backgrounds, and helped me feel more comfortable climbing multi-pitch routes (this was my first time). I highly recommend this trip to anyone that wants to experience the beauty of south of France from a couple hundreds meters up.

    The climb with Robin was amazing. We were a group of 3 and he picked us up at the bus station since we didn\'t have a car. He took us on the route de Cretes which is beautiful, and then climbed les Calanques. The day was perfect and the view was mesmerizing. At the end, he dropped us off at the city center of Cassis since we luckily had the time to visit it. I would definitely recommend the guide, who watched over us and is friendly, and the route which was so beautiful!
