chamonix experience


Chamonix Experience is a mountain guide, ski guide and adventure company based in the Chamonix Valley, at the foot of the Mont Blanc Massif. Established in 1996, we have been organising guided trips and adventures for over 20 years. We work in close relationship with more than 20 highly qualified UIAGM / IFMGA mountain guides, each with many years of experience guiding worldwide and actively climbing and skiing themselves.

Chamex offers a wide range of courses and private guiding in Chamonix, Verbier, and Courmayeur. We also venture further away guiding clients on ascents of the Matterhorn, Eiger, Gran Paradiso and other 4000m peaks in the Alps. Our activities include off-piste ski clinics, guided ski touring, mountaineering courses, rock climbing and ice climbing. We organise private guiding for individuals as well as groups – from one day trips to week long expeditions.

A match made in heaven.
