I’m an independent mountain guide living in Chamonix.  I’ve been working on the Snoworks Backcountry programme for a number of seasons. It’s a unique set up where you ski with both mountain guides and instructors; skiers have the benefit of guides finding the best snow possible and instructors developing the off-piste skills, all in the same course.

There are some great destinations on the Snoworks programme including Gressoney, still relatively unknown which is great for us as you can still be skiing untracked snow weeks after a snowfall. It’s a magnificent area with helidrops on the Monterosa and off-piste descents into Zermatt.

I also work as a trainer for the off-piste training modules for the British Association of Snowsport Instructors. So you can rest assured safety is my number one priority.

I look forward to seeing you on the slopes.
