About Chamonix Experience

Chamonix Experience is an international mountain guide company based in the centre of Chamonix Mont-Blanc. Available all year round we specialise in off-piste ski guiding, mountaineering, trekking, rock climbing, ice climbing and, of course, climbing Mont Blanc and all the 4000’s in the Alps.

Our mountain guides are all fully UIAGM / IFMGA qualified and have years of experience in guiding all around the world. We are happy to take individuals or private groups, tailoring your experience to meet your expectations and achieve your goals. We also run a number of mountaineering and climbing courses throughout the year, teaching invaluable mountain techniques to take your alpine skills to the next level. Please feel free to contact us if there is anything that you would like to do that you can not find on our website – we offer a truly flexible service.

We run mountain guiding services all around the Alps; being based in Chamonix is a great gateway into the mountains of France, Switzerland and Italy. As well as Mont Blanc we also have the iconic peaks of the Matterhorn, the Eiger and Gran Paradiso on our doorstep – giving us plenty of opportunities to summit whatever the weather conditions.

CHAMEX also has years of experience in leading expeditions worldwide in places such as Nepal, Argentina, Kenya, North Pole, Kamchatka, Jordan and Peru. Contact us to find out how we can take you with us.

About Chamonix Experience

Our owner & Director

Director and owner of Chamonix Experience, Sébastien is a UIAGM mountain guide, ski guide, French qualified ski instructor and an active climber.

He started his professional career as a PGHM mountain rescuer in Chamonix, before making the decision to become a full-time mountain guide. At the age of 42, Sébastien has over 27 years’ experience in the mountains and has led several expeditions worldwide.

A few years ago Sébastien launched his own company, World Wide Guiding (WWG). The company specialises in expeditions and has been several times to Nepal, Argentina, Kenya, North Pole, Kamchatcka, Jordan, Peru, Norway, Island, Canada.

While guiding, Sébastien has summited several peaks worldwide, such as Mount Everest in May 2011, and he continues to climb wherever clients want to go with him.

In 2011, during his expedition to Nepal with Kenton Cool, Sébastien met Russell Brice at EBC. The pair got on straight away, Sébastien’s energy and enthusiasm to mountain guiding and his love of Chamonix reminding Russell of himself at Sébastien’s age. Keen to ensure that Chamonix Experience had a bright future, Russell handed over the reins of the company to Sébastien later that year.

Aside from managing his companies, Sébastien continues to enjoy climbing new mountains and exploring. His passion for mountaineering has become the essence of Chamonix Experience. He channels all his time and energy into the company to ensure that it provides excellent courses, focusing on the best possible climbing and skiing adventures in the mountains.
