Ski With The Pros – Kicking Horse Powder Tours and Action Outdoors has teamed up to create a special week in Chamonix during January to explore the off-piste terrain in the area and ski with Jérémie Heitz, one of the world’s top freeride and big mountain skiers, star of La Liste.
The week-long trip will be led by a qualified mountain guide and Jérémie will join the group for two days and accompany the skiers in the Chamonix Valley where he competed in the World Freeride Tour, close to his home village of Marécottes just across the border in the Swiss Valais.
The trip is only open to experienced off-piste skiers who are already comfortable with steep terrain and have had some avalanche safety training. The trip has been limited to 10 guests with guided days being in groups of a max of 6 clients.
Chamonix is a special place to ride and there’s so much crazy terrain to explore. I’m really looking forward to finding the best of it and helping others discover our big mountain playground. We’ll definitely be riding hard, but of course I might slow down a little for the group.
The dates for the trip are Sunday January 7th for 6 nights in a catered chalet.
Price: £1,695 per person including 6 nights half-board chalet accommodation (twin occupancy), 3 course dinner with wine included, 5 days guiding with IFMGA Mountain Guide, 6 day lift pass for Chamonix Mont-Blanc (including Chamonix, Courmayeur and Verbier), Geneva Airport return transfers, hire of avalanche safety equipment (transceiver, probe and shovel), 2 days skiing with Jérémie Heitz.
David Robertson, Managing Director of Action Outdoors, said:
Having someone like Jérémie join us for a week on one of our off-piste adventures in Chamonix is an exciting prospect and a rare opportunity for a group to spend some time with an athlete who’s in constant demand. Although Jérémie is still quite young, he’s already taken the big mountain skiing world by storm and his legendary descents of some of the classic north facing slopes of the Alps, at mind boggling speeds, is something to behold. We’re certainly looking forward to skiing with him.
