The guides

Our guides

The three of us are good friends who live in the Queyras. Climbing, mountaineering, and skiing have been passions of ours since we were little kids. It was only natural that we became high mountain guides to enjoy and share our passion day-in and day-out.

My name is Seb.

I was lucky enough to grow up in the Queyras, a wonderful playground as a kid and still now as an adult.

When I was a kid, I threw all of my energy into cross-country skiing, racing for the local club and then at a national level as a high school student. Towards the end of my cross-country racing days, I started ski-mountaineering competitively as well as spending most of my time in the high mountains.

That is of course when I caught the travel bug. I spent several years experiencing adventure all across the globe, from Canada, to India, Pakistan, China, Afghanistan, as well as all over the Andes in South America (where I scaled several 6000m peaks on my own) to name just a few places.

At one point I decided to return to my native Alps to train to become a high-mountain guide. The four-year program allowed me to travel even more and climb in such incredible locations as the USA, Jordan, Morocco, Sardinia, Corsica, and of course all over the French Alps.

Today I am lucky to work in a profession where I continue to travel. Every ascent, every outing is an adventure. Perhaps we can share the next one together? On skis? On a climb? On ice?
