Highlights

 
     

    Zinal and Grimentz are two small hidden ski towns in the Val d’Anniviers. They belong to the canton of Valais in Switzerland. I invite you to join me on a 6-day backcountry snowboarding trip and discover the great possibilities they offer for a fantastic riding adventure.

    The pure air of the Alps and pristine white peaks await you in these two beautiful off the radar villages, together with amazing slopes, blue sky and sunshine!

    We will be able to access the great terrain in the area right from the lifts or after a short hike. I’m a passionate snowboarder, so I will choose the best spots and terrain for a great snowboarding experience. We will be one of the few groups to access the backcountry terrain, as this is how this place works!

    Zinal and Grimentz are not crowded, as the slopes around Verbier, Zermatt and Chamonix. Therefore, we are able to enjoy great runs on untracked powder all day long.

    During this trips we will stay in a hotel with its own micro brewerey, for the well deserved beer at the end of the day.

    Interested in discovering the backcountry possibilities in Zinal and Grimentz? Send me a request and we will start planning your next snowboarding trip! I also offer a 6-day splitboarding trip in Chamonix. Check it out!

    About the Guide

     
     

    - IFMGA / UIAGM mountain guide -
    I'm one of the off-piste snowboard specialists based in Chamonix at the foot of Mont Blanc. From powder virgins to extreme steep boarders, I aim to give you the ultimate snowboarding experience. Whether it be big drops, deep powder or tree runs, I will make sure your trip is an unforgettable one!

    My trips combine snowboard touring, freeriding, heli-boarding and avalanche awareness training. I will custom make your dream trip in some of the best terrain in the world.

    Chamonix is the ideal place for every level of off-piste adventure. The Chamonix valley boasts an abundance of legendary off-piste descents and a high lift system which makes for exceptional scenery and enough snow for all winter round. Experience the true wilderness and beauty of the Alps in a quest for powder and high adventure!

    Join me this winter, get away from the crowded piste and make your own tracks in an untouched powder field! Or feel the thrill of flying in a helicopter over snow covered peaks before experiencing effortless powder turns down a remote valley.

    I'm an Internationally qualified IFMGA Mountain Guide, who guides most of the mountaineering trips. Originally from Belgium, I'm have over 20 years of experience snowboarding in the Mont Blanc massif, the Alps and the greater ranges of the world. Having lived in Chamonix for over a decade I have enjoyed the unique and unlimited possibilities in and around the valley. I'm proficient in four languages; English, French, German and of course his mother tongue Dutch.

    I'm working with other IFMGA mountain guides (International Federation of Mountain Guides Associations), the highest possible qualification ensuring the best standards in safety, client care and enjoyment. They are selected on their personality and personal knowledge of the chosen objective and motivation to provide a safe but unforgettable experience.
