Backcountry magic in the heart of Europe

Pristine wild territory with easy access

With its mountainous terrain and deep-rooted skiing culture, the Alpine region’s skiing history goes back centuries. The term “off-piste” itself is French, reflecting the Alps’ central role in the development of this skiing niche.

As you venture into the heart of this majestic mountain range, you’ll trace the footsteps of early pioneers who explored these landscapes in pursuit of adventure.

Today, modern ski touring in the Alps combines the spirit of exploration with cutting-edge infrastructure, offering an extraordinary blend of physical challenge and pristine natural beauty.

Discover uncharted territory and carve your path

Whether you’re drawn to the Swiss tradition of Haute Route, the famous Vallee Blanche in Chamonix, the dramatic Italian peaks, or the Austrian Tyrol, the Alps beckon with endless opportunities.

Traverse untouched slopes, find your way through alpine meadows, and descend into hidden valleys. Experience the breathtaking blend of mountain cultures that make the Alps a quintessential destination.

  • World-class skiing terrain

Skiing in the shadow of iconic peaks like Mont Blanc provides not just a skiing adventure but a visual feast of pristine snow-covered mountains, deep valleys, and stunning vistas

  • Altitude matters

The higher the altitude, the more reliable and abundant the snow; locations at higher elevations tend to have a longer ski season and better snow conditions

  • Apres-skis with a view

After a day on the slopes, unwind with a vibrant apres-ski scene in picturesque villages and enjoy in some of the most picturesque landscapes in the world

If you’re looking for a mountain guide to bring you out climbing, mountaineering, skiing or an all around alpine mentor, Jayson is the one. I’ve traveled the world with Jayson and other mountain guides and can confidently say he is the best in the business! A great teacher and a fun person to spend time with in the mountains.

Excellent guide service. From the moment of booking to the end of the course, the staff and guides were helpful, enthusiastic, patient, and very knowledgeable. Highly recommended.

Just back from a fantastic weekend in Chamonix. The first time ski touring and we are total converts! Mike was a fantastic guide, despite being beginners we had three full days of great touring/skiing in three different areas of the mountain. And all the while Mike was great at helping us learn about the equipment, the mountain and avalanche safety. If we go back to Chamonix I will definitely be getting in touch with Mike to guide us again.

Klemen is a great guy. He is a very patient, group-oriented, and knowledgeable guide that led us through different weather conditions. We always felt safe and the tours that he picked were just at the appropriate level for our skills and confidence. We\’re looking forward to new adventures with Klemen.
Vallee Blanche is a must-see for anyone visiting Chamonix. That was one of the routes we took and regardless of snow conditions, it was a fantastic experience.
