Private ski touring

Private mountain guiding tailored to meet your specific requirements, we will work with you towards your skiing objectives or simply help you discover the amazing Chamonix backcountry.


We can organise customised itineraries for skiers of all levels anywhere in Europe and for groups of any size.


Discover our local mountains with us. Ski tours for all levels, from one day trips to multi days expeditions.


Customised courses with structured and personalised tuition for beginners as well as expert skiers. Off piste ski skills, ski touring basics or ski mountaineering skills.


Ski touring gives you the freedom to escape the lifts and crowded resorts and unlocks the gateway to the magical Alpine backcountry. Discover with us the calm, beauty, freedom and adventure of ski touring.

Our UIAGM ski guides will share their passion for ski touring with you and take you riding through untracked valleys and snow covered forests. Our ski touring courses are designed to improve your ski touring techniques and your off-piste skiing as well as help you to discover the backcountry ski runs around the Chamonix Valley.

We would be delighted to organise single day, multi day or hut-to-hut private ski touring trips for all levels from beginners to expert skiers. We’ll take care of all the logistics and planning to allow you to enjoy your ski holiday without stress or worries. Chamonix offers some fantastic ski tour itineraries for all abilities and our ski guides are waiting to share them with you.

Let us know your ski touring level and previous experience and we will build a customised program based on your wishes and abilities. CHAMEX mountain guides can be booked for groups or individuals of all abilities and experience – just tell us what you want and we’ll take care of the rest.

Our mountain guides and office staff will communicate with you prior to your trip to make sure that you have the right equipment and advise on any specific preparation needed for your chosen objectives. We have a mountain guide office in Chamonix where you can speak with us in person, and where we can meet before your guided activity to ensure that you have everything you need.

We are also happy to help you with other arrangements such as mountain rescue insurance, mountain hut and hotel bookings, lift passes and airport transfers. If you are unsure of anything just ask us and we will advise based on our many years of living and working in Chamonix.
