Private off-piste ski guiding

Whether you want to focus on a particular skiing technique or just maximise your time in the mountains, Chamonix Experience will prepare a programme tailored to your specific requirements.


Where possible, we will adapt the programme to your level, personal goals, & the current weather & snow conditions. Our aim is to maximise your time and experience in the mountains.


We work with fully qualified local mountain guides who are passionate about skiing, have extensive local knowledge, speak English and make for fun company.


Chamonix is a mecca for freeride and backcountry skiing offering easy access to amazing terrain for skiers of all levels.


Chamonix is the birthplace of off-piste skiing and is widely known as a mecca for freeride skiing. We offer tailor-made ski guiding and courses for all abilities, from those who want to improve their technique in the backcountry, to experienced powder hounds who want to challenge themselves on some of Chamonix’s famous steep skiing lines such as the Pas de Chèvre or the Rectiligne couloir. Whether you’d like to ski the Vallee Blanche, explore open backcountry bowls at the Grands Montets, or venture further afield to Courmayeur and the Toula glacier, our Chamonix mountain guides are on hand to ensure you get the most from your off-piste skiing experience with us.

Our UIAGM mountain ski guides are passionate about off-piste skiing and free ride. Whether you wish to do your first turns on the off-piste terrain or drop into some of the famous Chamonix steep runs, our ski guides will help you to achieve your goals. We work with a small group of Chamonix mountain guides who have extensive knowledge of local ski terrain and conditions in the Mont Blanc valley. We will take you to ski the best snow in the area while keeping you safe. Our goal is for you to get the most out of your ski holiday and to ski amazing snow without worrying about the weather or conditions.

All of the mountain guides that we employ are very active skiers. They have been living and guiding in and around Chamonix for many years. They will be delighted to share their experience, skills and passion for the mountains with you. We will make sure that we find the right guide for you.wartm
