Why ski with Vertical Frontiers?
Skiing with a mountain guide allows you to ski good safe snow. Mountain guides can also work on glaciers (unlike ski instructors) so you can experience some of the best terrain the mountains have to offer. If you want a specific ski lesson then you should book an instructor, but if you can ski to the side of the piste and want to try some more challenging terrain, or you're an experienced off piste skier who wants to explore, then hiring a mountain guide is the thing to do.
We are passionate skiers and during the winter log a fair amount of time on skis, off the lifts, and ski touring as well. Skiing is our number one priority in the winter. The mountaineering gear gets put away until the summer as searching out the best conditions for the weather and clients is satisfying, and great fun! All our guides are fully qualified IFMGA mountain guides and all are english speaking. Most are British and are members of the British Mountain Guides Association.
Safety is our main priority
Our guides know both resorts intimately, and will plan the weekend based on the weather and conditions at the time. Safety is our main priority and we equipe each skier with avalanche safety gear such as an avalanche transceiver, probe and shovel (included in the trip price).
