Discover the mountains off the beaten trail, no pistes, no limits, amid the majestic surroundings with numerous possibilities.
As natural as walking, ski touring is just as simple, gliding forward on the skis, adapting a regular rhythm and discover the wide open spaces and the cherry on the cake, that delicious descent, the ultimate reward at the end of the effort.
The choice of the descent will be decided by the current snow conditions. Sometimes 30 minutes is enough to reach untouched valleys and fantastic slopes covered on fresh snow.
Ski touring is synonymous of freedom, no piste to follow, making your own way and being at one with the mountain, combining the effort of ascending and the pure joy of descending.
By hiring the services of a private guide, you will be able to organize and custom your itinerary as you like along the most beautiful sites of the Mont Blanc valley.
The strategic location of Chamonix allows you to choose the best places of the moment across 3 different countries: Italy, Switzerland and France. We will also be able to reach the desired altitude and the glaciers by using the resort’s ski lifts.
This private service allows you to organize and custom your day, making the most of the backcountry environment and snow conditions of the valley.
