    Join me at the beautiful French commune of Val d’Isere in the Tarentaise Valley for a day of ski touring or off-piste skiing.

    Val d’Isere is known for great skiing. It’s famous for it. And it has been famous for it for decades. So it’s only natural that people want to explore it. However, not everybody wants to stick to the normal routes. Some people want to tour beyond those routes. They want to ski in places where there are no tracks, no traces of past skiers. And that’s what makes this trip so special. Because this is a trip focused on ski touring for as far as you wish, and off-piste skiing that allows to ski off the beaten path.

    There is so much to see in the Tarentaise Valley. And with the freedom this trip offers, from morning only, to half-day, to full-day options, you will get to see as much of it as you have the energy to explore. Besides Val d’Isere, you can also venture into Tignes, Les Arcs, La Plagne, La Rosiere, even Chamonix and La Grave. You can even cross into Switzerland and Italy, with the gorgeous snowy peaks of the Alps looming above, watching, greeting you quietly. While you take in the silence and peace.

    Flexibility is the key to this trip. The option of where you ski, how you ski, and how long you ski is entirely up to you. If you only have a little skiing experience and want to expand your range. Or you are an expert who wants a quiet, open place to practice. If you are by yourself, or with your friends or family, this trip adapts to your needs, not the other way around.

    So come and join me for a free, open, ski-touring or off-piste, private or group trip, in Val d’Isere.

    I’ll be awaiting your message.

    If you are interested in a much more extensive French ski-touring expedition. You can also join me on this 8-day ski tour in the Queyras Valley.

    What People are Saying about Jean-Marc Kaufmann


    Hello to all who like the intensity of amazing heights reached with sometimes a bit of sweat but so rewarding that the memories live in you year in or out. I travelled many times with Jean-Marc as guide. Heliskiing in Canada, Touring skiing (seals\' skin skiing) in Tromso, Spitzberg or more simply in ski resorts like France, Italy and Bulgaria. I recommend him for the complete trust in what he is sure I can do and his guiding ability on top of our sharing a good bear after the day\'s efforts (I am Belgian so ...). I even tried myself at 53 years\' old to a bit of climbing with \"Aiguille d\'Entrève\" and discovered a new ability. Great moments past and to come.

    Jean-Marc nous a guidé avec beaucoup de professionnalisme dans l\'ascension du Grand-Paradis cet été. Ce fut une très belle première expérience d\'alpinisme pour moi, en toute confiance. Les passionnantes discussions à bâtons-rompus comme le respect du silence (dans la longue descente) m\'ont paru précieux également.

    J’ai eu la chance de rencontrer Goulven et d’être guidé par lui sur le Grand Paradis en août 2014. C’est un super compagnon de cordée, un pro de la sécurité, un excellent leader, un défenseur de belles valeurs montagnardes et une personne très riche par le métier diversifié qu’il exerce, guide de haute montagne mais aussi copilote d’hélicoptère.
