Marion, an IFMGA-certified guide, takes you on this 2-day mountaineering women-only course around Chamonix. Join her for a fun weekend in the mountains.



2 Days

Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep




  • Improve your mountaineering skills with a women-only course
  • Enjoy the spectacular scenery around the beautiful village of Chamonix
  • Be led by a woman guide who loves to share her passion for the mountains!


If you are looking to take your mountaineering skills a step further, and you’d prefer to learn and experience the mountains along with other women, then I have the perfect course for you!

Bring your friends along and join me on this weekend mountaineering course in Chamonix, only for women, enjoying the special camaraderie of an all female group.

I am an experienced woman guide, passionate about the mountains and love to share this passion with other women. During this weekend, you will learn and improve your skills and techniques for a safe and enjoyable experience in the mountains.

We will meet in the charming and famous alpine town of Chamonix, in France. We will get together on the glacier and learn about crevasse rescue. On rock, we will learn how to place protection points, like friends and pitons. We will go over the basic mountaineering skills and techniques.

You will experience the thrill of climbing and hiking on glaciers in the beautiful mountains around Chamonix, as they will be our classroom for these 2 days. I will make sure you get a solid mountaineering base.

After spending a day out in the mountain, learning and putting our skills into practice, we will spend a night in a mountain refuge. On the next morning, we will enjoy a spectacular sunrise over the mountains and continue with our course.

Women-only courses are an empowering and enriching experience, offering a great environment to learn and to push ourselves out of our comfort zone.

So if you’d like to be part of this unique women-only course, just send me a request! Join me and come enjoy a fantastic experience in the mountains around Chamonix.



We'll stay either in a mountain hut either in a hostel in the village of Chamonix.

If you come with a large group, I'll ask one of my friends, IFMGA guide as well, to join us.

About the guide

I am a certified IFMGA Mountain Guide, ski instructor trainee and a Police Mountain Rescuer "CRS Montagne".

I’m based in the Chamonix valley and have had the chance to travel all around the world: India, Pakistan, China, Yosemite, Antarctica and Canada, among others.

I particularly enjoy rock climbing, introducing women to alpine environments and the diversity of the activities in which I’m involved in. I love sharing my passion, inspiring others to believe in themselves in order to move on and go further.

Feel free to contact me if you are looking for a guide to support you in a mountain project you have, in the Alps or anywhere else. I will be happy to guide you and share an unique moment together.

Je travaille avec Marion depuis 4ans sur l’encadrement du groupe d’alpinisme au féminin GAF74 du Comité départemental des clubs alpins et de montagne de Haute Savoie. Les membres du GAF74 sont toujours heureuse de pouvoir être encadré par une guide telle que Marion, une femme qui a su ouvrir les portes de certaines formation de la montagne aux femmes. Un vrai exemple qu’elles sont heureuses de suivre et dont elles sont fières de s’inspirer grâce à ces journées de formation.
