Philippe, Chamonix Mountain Guide
Few Words about your Guide
I started skiing at 3 behind my Grand'Pa house. Since i never stopped. Rock climbing came later, around 15. But all in all my steps were already leading toward the Mountains. I'm Guiding since 25 years, all over the world and on all kind of activities : rock, ice climbing, free ride, ski touring... i'm also Canyoning and paragliding instructor with my own paragliding company , Alpwind.
I love to share hidden gems with the clients who dare to trust my advices, who wants to avoid crowds and look for quiet climbs. I'm a big fan of ski touring trips, what we call "Raids" in french. Leaving the valley for 6 or 7 days, skiing from hut to hut, discovering amazing landscapes...it is why i always try to propose new stuff in the ski touring section, such as the Graubunden Haute Route for example.
RockClimbing is another passion. If I love to push in serious climbs, trad or sports, i'm also excited to lead more moderate but aesthetic climbs. And Ridges are on my top list. It is why you may see that i'm often in Switzerland, land of the best skylines.
So if you're looking for a mountain guide not that much in the hype, but curious and ready to share not only technics but also a vision , a mountaineering philosophy, you're at the right place.
So maybe see you soon !
