off-piste -  freeride skiing

I have been freeride skiing for 25 years and the Alps have the best combination of terrain and lift access served terrain anywhere in the world.
It's all about riding the best lines, finding the best snow and playing with the terrain. Check out these programs

My adventure skiing courses are all about skiing the steep and the deep in some very exotic locations.
My steep skiing courses are a total hands on learning experience where you get in the nitty gritty.

ski touring | ski mountaineering

Ski mountaineering or ski touring got it’s start here in the European Alps with reason. The mind blowing itineraries, welcoming huts and exquisite food are all reasons to ski here. I offer several tours including the famous Haute Route Chamonix to Zermatt as well as many under the radar tours to places such as the Austrian Stubai and the Italian tour of the Gran Paradiso.

heliskiing

Massive scenery, massive vertical drop. Once you’ve experienced the thrill of heli supported adventures, you’ll have a hard time not getting addicted.
Offers include flying just about anywhere in the Alps – including the highest summits of the Alps – Mont Blanc and Monte Rosa – as well as the incredible journey to Kamchatka, Russia.

 
 

SUMMER 2019

From climbing the highest peak of the Alps - Mont Blanc to a traverse of the Matterhorn to sea cliff climbing above the Mediterranean sea in Finale Ligure - you are sure to find a healthy dose of adrenaline here.

major summits of the Alps

I regularly guide many of the major summits of the Alps and offer courses to the most well know peaks. These custom courses allow for ample time to practice skills and acclimate prior to a major ascent. Consequently, these programs offer a very high success rate. I also offer a la carte guiding to a particular peak or project that you may have in mind.

In addition to guiding the major peaks of the Alps, I also take things a bit further with my combined programs. For a select few, you have the opportunity to climb several alpine giants in a relatively small time frame. I also have a few interesting alpine programs worth looking at.

The sport of mountain biking is exploding - it's an incredibly fun sport for all ages and abilities. Modern bikes allow for an easy, yet relatively quick learning curve. 
Check out the fun from the cool flow trails of hand selected spots to e-biking and hut to hut trips
