Alpinism

Alpinism is the heart of the guiding activity. At the begining of the XIXth century, the first alpine guides offered to the traveler of that time to ascent peaks that they had the oportunity to discover from their activity of peasants, minerals hunters, smugglers... The word "guide" had its basic meaning : the one who shows the way. Sometimes they did not know more than that, sometimes the traveler was better from a technical point of view. Of course many guides were great climbers, like Michel Croz, Christian Almer, Jean-Antoine Carrel...

Since then, the profession has changed a lot ! Now the guide also shares all its knowledge about the mountain : techniques, safety, history, natural history... Apart from reaching together the summit, my goal is to help you to get better in your practise of alpinisme, physically as well as mentaly, and to make of you a real fan of mountains !
