Come join me on my next ski adventure! From Chamonix powder to remote expeditions, check out what I can offer. I specialize in guiding small groups of experienced skiers looking to gain additional skills and knowledge or to push themselves in more technical terrain.

Chamonix Freeride

Do you dream of powder filled couloirs, making fresh turns in a pristine glacial landscape or charging around the best and most secluded tree runs?

Then look no further. With a decade of local knowledge behind me, the Mont Blanc Massif is my backyard and playground year round. Almost everyday from November to May I’m either guiding or searching out the best snow and lines for my own enjoyment. This means I’m able to find the best conditions to suit your ability. No matter what your freeride level I can tailor an adventure to your requirements. Whether you want to cruise down the famous Vallee Blanche stopping for a relaxing lunch on the way down, or whether you are a pro skier or ex pro racer looking to be shown the best spots, I would love to show you my favorite local spots.

I place a strong emphasis on finding the best conditions while maintaining a very solid safety margin. Freeriding is full of potential hazards such as avalanche danger, crevasses and cliffs. First and foremost your safety is my priority.

Previous off-piste experience is required. Please email me for more details.

Prices start at 400 euros a day for 1:1 with an additional 50 euros per person per day, max group size 6. Group size also depends on the groups aspiration, to allow us to ski more technical terrain a maximum group size of 4 is recommended.

Heli drops are also available on demand.

Steep Skiing: Guided Descents and Coaching

Not for everyone, this is for already experienced off-piste skiers looking to get into steep skiing for the first time or to progress their steep skiing to the next level. From practicing your first steep turns on an easy couloir to skiing mythical Chamonix classics like the North Face of the Midi, I can match your skill level and ambitions, pushing you just enough while keeping you safe in a serious and dynamic environment. If you are already a strong independent steep skier but lack a strong partner for your dream objective, then I would love to hear from you and see what we can do together.

Prices start at 450 euros per day and depend on the objective.

Max group size 2.

Ski Mountaineering

Ski mountaineering is the pursuit of backcountry skiing where mountaineering techniques are also needed. This always us to scale high alpine peaks to access untouched descents and hidden couloirs. This could involve rappelling into lines, climbing with crampons and ice axes and using a rope to safeguard passages. I cater to a wide variety of skill levels and there are objectives throughout the Alps to suit many different tastes and skill levels. From Mont Blanc and Monterosa to many lesser known technical summits, let me take you to the rarefied heights of the Alps with skis strapped to your back.

Prices depend on the objective, please inquire directly. Previous off piste experience is needed and some mountaineering experience is useful but not essential. Maximum group size 2.

Personalized Coaching

I am first and foremost a dedicated and passionate skier. I pride myself in having a high technical ski level and there is nothing I love more than to coach my clients to become better skiers themselves. Whether you are after specific help with off-piste technique or want to develop your mountain skills such as rope-work, crevasses rescue and avalanche search and rescue, I can tailor a day’s or a week’s course to suit your needs.

Prices start at 400 euros per day for 1:1, 450 2:1, 500 3:1
