- Winter mountaineering courses -

Our intermediate winter mountaineering course is for those who wish to advance their existing alpine climbing skills and become more independent mountaineers.

Educational course

Well structured curriculum covering wide range of mountaineering skills


Chamonix is the capitol of Alpinism, the best place to learn mountaineering

Small groups

Most of the course operates on a 1:2 guiding ratio to allow more personalised instruction

A progressional course for climbers with basic experience in winter mountaineering

Our Winter Mountaineering Level 2 Course is the perfect follow-up course from our Winter Mountaineering L1 or one of our Ice Climbing courses. You will advance your climbing techniques as well as the essential safety skills needed for independent climbing in the winter Alpine environment. 

The first day of the course will be a refresher of the skills you have learned on the Winter Mountaineering L1. We will go through the equipment, essential rope skills, basic ice climbing skills and we will check the overall level of the group to prepare the itinerary for the rest of the course. 

We reduced the guiding ratio to 1:2 on the last 3 days of the course to allow for more personalised instruction and increasingly technical climbing. 

Please let us know if you ski tour. While this is not necessary for the course, ski touring allows quick and fun access to climbs which are out of reach on foot. It opens more possibilities for climbing. We will use skis only when everyone in the group is happy to ski tour.
