Alpine Introduction

Trekking, climbing, biking and more

 

An action packed five day course

In this course we cover a wide variety of Alpine skills.

Based in Chamonix, the Alpine capital of the world, we have a vast choice of terrain on the doorstep in France, Italy and Switzerland, which ensures that we find the right conditions and peaks for your trip.

The goals of our course are to make you feel comfortable in the Alpine environment, to teach you the essential skills required for easy Alpine climbing, to climb some peaks and have fun.

An Introduction to Mountaineering

Learn the skills required to travel safely in the Alpine environment on a Mountain Adventure Guides alpine introduction course.

Over the five guided days we will teach and coach you on a wide variety of alpine skills – including ice axe and crampon training, glacial travel and crevasse rescue, moving together on easy alpine terrain, route planning, navigation, using mountain refuges and much more.

The aims of the course are to introduce you to the amazing world of alpine climbing, to coach alpine climbing skills, climb peaks and have fun.

The beauty of our location in Chamonix is that your accommodation allows you complete flexibility (you can come and go as you wish), and this means we can make the best of our time and the conditions. We are not fixed to a particular itinerary.
