Ski guides in Chamonix
During the winter, ski guides take individuals and groups off piste skiing and ski touring in and around the Chamonix Valley. Popular trips include the Vallee Blanche accessed from the Aiguille du Midi, Col du Passon and Pas de Chevre, both reached via the top of the Grand Montets. Due to the glaciated nature of the region, crevasses are a real threat when going off piste. Combined with the extreme terrain, avalanche awareness and crevasses rescue knowledge is a must so to be safe, and if if in any doubt, hire a Chamonix ski guide.
Private guiding in Chamonix
Often guides or agencies run a few popular trips where you can join a guided group in Chamonix. The benefit is that you don’t have to persuade all your friends to hire a guide to get the benefits. Payment is made on a per person basis. If you can afford it or you have a small group of your own, it can be most cost effective to hire a private guide, getting the benefit of a local guide to yourself and the enjoyment factor of spending the day with your friends.
