Mont Blanc Tours
Phil, our agent based in Chamonix organises tours in France, Switerland and Italy for us and has written to us about their preparation for the coming summer season. He gives us an insight into what all the tour leaders have been up to in the winter months, and what springtime brings to the Alps.
Over to Phil…
Chamonix 9th March 2010 Bonjour from Mont Blanc !
Chamonix looks stunning and the skiing is still fabulous, but the thaw has begun on the lower slopes and we are all limbering-up for the Alpine summer season. Thank goodness it is no longer minus 10 every day!
Chamonix-Mont Blanc in the summer
We welcome Jonny Mitchell to our team: he’s a qualified mountain bike guide spending his winters in Andalucía and summers in the Alps and Ardèche. He will be leading our family activity holidays and adult multi-activity holidays such as Mont Blanc Explorer and Mont Blanc Activity Week.
Family cycling in the Alps
Emily Andrew has been on an expedition to Alaska and Cat Freeman spent several weeks guiding in Southern India . Phil Jarratt has been cutting snowshoe trails throughout the Chamonix valley and Joy O’Flanagan has been perfecting her ice climbing and skiing. All are jostling to lead the best treks!
Family Kayaking in the Ardèche
We are all looking forward to trekking, biking, rafting and climbing in the warm Alpine summer and can’t wait to welcome new visitors this year. In the meantime, there is still some great powder snow away from the main pistes! Phil Mansbridge
