Hi, Salut, Ciao, Gruss Gott, Kiaora!
Welcome to my Website! I hope you enjoy looking through these pages and they can provide you with the information or inspiration that you are looking for.
Based in the world renowned Chamonix valley in France, I offer year round guiding throughout Europe and further afield. Since being taken up the central Trinity gully on Mt Snowdon in Wales (UK) as a sixteen year old, I have developed a lifelong addiction to the mountains. I would like to share that addiction with you.
I am a New Zealand trained IFMGA guide with 10 years experience guiding in the UK and European Alps. I have also guided and climbed in Nepal, India, North America, Africa, Australia and of course New Zealand!
So, whatever you want, be it instruction in Alpine climbing, to climb a particular dream Mountain, to ski from Chamonix to Zermatt, to learn how to navigate, to rock climb at any level, or perhaps check out the wine cellars at various Alpine huts, please get in contact with me. I’m looking forward to hearing from you!
What is an IFMGA Guide?
The International Federation of Mountain Guides Associations set the standard for the training and assessment of mountain guides worldwide. Each member country has its own association. I am a member of the British Mountain Guides (BMG) and the New Zealand Mountain Guides (NZMGA). This qualification allows the holder to operate on rock, snow, ice and glaciers anywhere in the world. It is the highest possible qualification available for operating in a mountain environment.
