You will need to manage controlled descents in variable conditions. All participants should feel comfortable on challenging blue or black-level resort runs.

This adventure is envisaged as a combination of on-piste and off-piste skiing. The tour’s flexibility ensures that the skiing locations are customized based on your group’s preferences and skill levels, as well as practical considerations like weather conditions.

    If you’ve never backcountry skied before, heading out with a guide is your best bet. They’ll take care of the planning, introduce you to the basics, like skinning uphill, and teach you how to manage the terrain. They also have the experience and avalanche training to keep you safe.

      • Alpine touring skis, telemark skis with skins (can be rented)
      • Touring boots and poles (can be rented)

      • Camera — optional (but recommended!)

    You’ll get a chance to discuss your packing list and technical equipment with your guide prior to the adventure. Since you’re going to tackle both on-piste and off-ski runs, the equipment for each day may vary slightly depending on the location and your skiing objectives (for example, riding on skis with or without skins).

  • All the technical alpine skiing and ski touring equipment can be rented with the help of your guiding service. They usually rent from the Sanglard Sports gear shop and they can arrange a discount. Keep in mind that your guide will provide avalanche safety equipment as necessary. Contact us prior to booking to make arrangements.

  • Accommodation during your skiing trip in Chamonix offers two possibilities. You can stay in a hotel, with flexible options like half board or dining in Chamonix restaurants. Alternatively, you can opt for an apartment rental, which is both convenient and cost-effective. Your guiding service can assist you in coordinating either of these options. Simply inform them of your preference, and they’ll connect you with their accommodation partners for a smooth arrangement.

  • Group sizes and prices:

      • This is a private tour—just you and your people. It takes a minimum of 2 participants for this tour to operate. Due to wanting to avoid groups who do not match in skill or fitness level, your guides believe it’s best to have private groups only for this trip.

      • The cost is per person and doesn’t decrease as the group grows.

    Backcountry skiing around Chamonix can be arranged for larger and for private groups (with a minimum of 2 participants). Contact us to make arrangements.

Looking to make airport transfers hassle-free? Check out Mountain Drop Offs—they provide door-to-door service in their comfy and spacious shuttles. Use the code 57HCHX to get a 5% discount!

    You will meet your guide in Chamonix on Day 1 some time in the late afternoon—the exact time and location will be given to you once your trip has been confirmed. Skiing is not planned on Day 1, so you needn’t arrive before, but if you’re traveling from afar, it is recommended.

  • We highly recommend that you cover all your bases with both emergency medical and travel insurance. With medical insurance, if you have an accident or medical emergency on or off the mountain, you’ll avoid paying out of pocket for costly expenses. This covers everything from hospital treatments to emergency air transportation and more.

    Travel insurance covers canceled flights, natural disasters and other scenarios that may interrupt your travel plans.

    We also expect you to respect local regulations and take measures to protect yourselves, your guides, and the communities you’re traveling to.
