    Zermatt, at the foot of the Mont Rose and Matterhorn glaciers, is an alpinist’s dream. It is a massive ski resort with more than 360 slopes and an excellent place to explore off-piste, heliski, and ski touring. I’d like to propose a week trip of guided skiing around Zermatt’s spectacular powder slopes. 

    Free ride skiing in Zermatt is an incredible experience that you just can’t pass up. The snow quality is great year round due to the prevalence of high altitude glaciers. Plus there are over 38 towering mountains you can potentially explore. But with so many options you may find it hard to choose where to go! That’s where I come in. I am familiar with the best routes for all different skill levels and can ensure you a great experience at Zermatt.

    During the week-long tour, you’ll stay at a cozy 4-star hotel in Zermatt. From there, every day we’ll go out skiing in the area. Together we can organize an itinerary perfectly suited to your desires– off piste skiing, ski touring, and even heliskiing are all options. I can promise you amazing glacier runs surrounded by ice falls and crevasses. There are also beautiful tranquil tours on wide virgin slopes that open up onto the gorgeous alpine landscape.

    So join me for a week of magnificent glacier landscapes, spectacular runs on high quality snow, and comfort in a 4-star hotel. It would be my pleasure to guide you in this area and make your trip an unforgettable one.

    Contact me today for more details or to book your Zermat ski tour. I’m looking forward to discussing itineraries with you. 

    I am a highly experienced ski guide who works all over the world. Maybe you’d like to join me skiing in India or ski touring Argentina.

    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.
