Continuous training

Contenu section centre

Our guides are trained following the highest standards, making them proper safety experts. In France, the practice of the profession of mountain guide is ruled by the state. Every 6 years, a mandatory refresher course guarantees the consistency of guides’ skills over time. The Compagnie also encourages its guides to take part in complementary trainings, such as first aid, avalanche risk management, group management or stress management.

The mountains impose their own rules

Adapting to mountain conditions is the essence of mountain guiding since its creation. In the context of global warming, this ability - based on the perfect knowledge of the mountains and a hyper-flexibility - is more vital than ever. In order to maximise your safety, we can modify consistently the logistics or programme of your activity, sometimes last minute.
