CHAMONIX SKIING WITH GUIDE

Chamonix and the surrounding mountains can offer some of the best skiing in the world, both the off-piste skiing and the ski touring is fantastic. The easy access, the spectacular soundings, the good ski terrain and great snow makes Chamonix a place you have to visit. But the same reasons also makes Chamonix a very busy place and it can be hard to find good snow and with all the glaciered terrain and avalanche risk you have to be careful. Hiring a guide for some days or for your whole stay can be smart thing to do, helping you to get a safe and enjoyable skiing.
I can arrange everything from one day of lift accessed skiing to multiple days of ski touring in the Chamonix area. To combine off-piste skiing with ski touring is often the best and what gives you the best snow.

Three days off-piste skiing:

DAY 3: L´Aiguille du Midi and Vallee Blanche

Three days of ski touring:

Guiding Mont Blanc

On the Bosses ridge with the shadow of Mont Blanc behindSept 17. 2010

On September 4.-9. I had two Norwegians for a 6 days Mont Blanc program through my company Breogfjell. We acclimatized in the Aiguille du Tour area in perfect weather. But on the 4. day it started to snow and rain and the forcast for the summit day didn’t look to good. We considered different alternatives, but the weather looked bad for most of the central Alpes so we decided to try Mont Blanc. We walked to Tete Rousse hut on day 5 and started at nigth from there in light snowfall. Everything went as planed, the weather just got better and we toped out around 09.00 as first party that day.

GUIDING AND CLIMBING IN ALPES

Per Magne on GrandCapucin

Sept 4.2010

After a summer with two much work in Norway I traveled to the Alpes on August 8. for some work and hopefully some climbing on my own. First I traveled to Valais to do a couple of recognition climbs for guiding later in the month. Then I traveled to Chamonix to climb for a week with Trym. But the day Trym arrived it started to rain in town and snow up high and the forecast said it would be like that for 4 days all over the Central Alpes. We packed rope and quickdraws, and together with some friends left Cham and drove down to Ceüse. There, the weather was better but for a mountain guide who mainly been walking and climbing grade 3 all summer, everything but the approach felt very steep.

When weather looked better for the Alpes we went back to Chamonix, there it had snowed  around 50 cm at 3000 meters, but after some days of good weather we hoped that it had melted enough and headed up to the Enveres hut. But we were to early and everything was still wet. Trym went home and the last day before I started working I teamed up with Ole Kristian and Steinar for a day at the south face of Midi. Weather was not very good, light snowfall at times and forecast said thunderstorm in early afternoon so we did Rebuffat to be sure to get up before the weather came. All of us had done the route before, but it was nice to finally do some climbing in the mountains and we had a very fun day, specially at the belays…

On August 21. I started a 6 days Matterhorn program with two Norwegians – Tone and Knut Johan Stenerud. First we had three days in Saastal with some rock climbing on Dri Horlini and a ascent of Weissmies (4017m). In the afternoon on the third day we traveled to Zermatt, there we did Breithorn (4164m) the next day. All week it was very uncertain about how conditions would be on Matterhorn. The big snowfall a week earlier had left around 60cm of snow at the Hörnli hut and a lot more on the mountain. It was melting every day, but we didn’t know if it would be enough. But with the good weather forecast we decided to try. On Matterhorn the guide:client ratio is 1:1 so Rok Zalokar, my Slovenian friend and guide joined us for the ascent. I started early from Zermatt on the 25. to climb a little higher then the Hörnli to check out conditions. I turned back at the Shoulder at 4200m, up to there conditions were good but above it looked like it was a lot of snow. As always on the Hörnli hut, “breakfast” is served at 04.00 and all guided parties start at 04.20. The ascent went OK, some queuing the first hour and the normal chaos on the fixed ropes up high. We summited 08.30 in blue sky and perfect weather. On the descent it was even more chaos than on the ascent but below the Shoulder everything went smoothly and we were at the hut again before 13.00.

After Matterhorn I traveled back Chamonix for some climbing in the mountains. But the weather was not the best and I just ended up rock climbing close to Sallanches and in Italy. When it finally cleared again Per Magne and I had two great days on the granite. The first day we climbed on the south face of Pointe Lachenal and the next day we wanted to try Grand Capucin. Capucin is not a very high summit, but on of the most impressing granite towers in the Mont Blanc massif. The 400 meter high east face has the most challenging routes, we climbed a combination of Voie des Suisses and O Sole Mio on the South face, mostly grade 5 with some pitches of 6. It was for sure on of my best days of rock climbing in the Alpes! Now I start 6 days of work in Chamonix and we hope to climb Mont Blanc.

GUIDING IN HURRUNGANE AND ROMSDALEN

Above the clouds on Storen 2010-07-04After alpine climbing and skiing a lot this winter and spring it was nice to have three weeks off from guiding in late May and early June. I was rock climbing most of the time, first in the in eastern part of Norway, then Bohuslan and a short trip to Peak District in England to try out the grit stone.

But the last three weeks I’ve been guiding in Norway. Mostly in Romsdalen, but I also had ten days at Turtagrø, guiding in Hurrungane. Both places still had a lot of snow with was both both good and bad. Hard trail braking on the way up, but good for the knees and efficiency on the way down.

In Hurrungane I had two long trips in beautiful weather on Styggedalsryggen, Sentraltind, Vesle Skagastølstind before finishing on Store Skagastølstind. Lots of  snow, both old and fresh, made both trips interesting with almost winter conditions on some of the climbing. Here’s some pictures, also from trips to Storen in Hurrungane and Romsdalshorn in Romsdalen.

END OF WINTER

HauteRoute 2010 04 19-24 2010-04-20On April 19. I started guiding my third and last Haute Route for the season, Also this time for my company, Breogfjell. We had a good week with warm temperatures and very stable snow conditions. In combination with very good client this gave me a quite easy week of work. But we had a very hard time finding good snow.

After Haute Route I returned home to Romsdalen for some ski guiding there before I went to Turtagrø and Highcamp. Breogfjell is responsible for all the guiding there and we had 20 guides on work May 7.-9. Weather was perfect and cold temperatures gave good conditions for skiing.

Next week I guided Karine for three days home in Romsdalen. The first day we did Hesteskotraversen in perfect conditions, cold in the morning and good slush down from Kirketaket in the afternoon. The next day we did Juratind. Warmer temperatures during the night gave very loose snow all the way to the top and down again, but it wasn’t to bad. The last day we did Skjervan from the east. We could drive quite high and had perfect weather and OK snow.

After a long winter it was very good to finally put away the skis and start rock climbing. And as always after a winter with to much guiding and alpine climbing, the first days on rock felt terrible for my fingers.

GUIDING HAUTE ROUTE – TIMES 2

On March 28. I started two weeks of guiding Haute Route – from Chamonix to Zermatt for Breogfjell. On the first trip, we had a lot of snow and wind on the first days and the avalanche bulletin said grade 4. So instead of doing the Col du Chardonnet to the Trient Hut we did the Col du Tour Noir and skied back down to Grand Montets and took a taxi to Verbier. The next days we experienced all types of weather and snow before it finally cleared and we had perfect weather and good skiing down to Zermatt.

The next week Breogfjell had two groups on Haute Route, Stein Møller and me guiding the Verbier-variant and Halvor Dannevig doing the classic route. The first day it was snowing a lot, but starting from Argentier Hut in the morning of April 5., we had clear sky and a lot of fresh snow. Breaking trail all the way to Trient Hut was hard work. The next morning we had good snow and perfect skiing down Val d´Arpette to Champex. The same day, we also had good skiing from the summit of Rosablanche and down to the Prafleuri Hut. From Prafleuri to Dix we had good weather and those who went up to La Luette in the afternoon had good skiing down. Over Pigne d´Arolla, weather was changing and skiing down to Vignettes Hut was memorable, but not in a good way. I had a cold and some fever the whole week and when one client wanted to go down to Arolla the next morning, I was happy to join him while Stein and Halvor took the two groups safely to Zermatt.

SKIING AND CLIMBING IN CHAMONIX…


Les Courtes North face…mostly skiing

On March 16. I traveled to Chamonix for 6 weeks, 3 of them for work. Before the guiding started I had 10 days of skiing and climbing on my own. When I arrived it hadn’t snowed for a long time and conditions was good for climbing. But to acclimatize I first did some skitouring. On the 19. I climbed the Swiss route in the north face of Les Courtes. The conditions were good and I had tracks from another party on the snowy part of the the climb. The climb took me 2.15. I climbed with short approach skis on my backpack so I could ski down the Telèfre side and down to Chamonix.

The next days it was raining in town, but snowing up high. When it finally cleared I had some good days of skiing from Midi.

On the 23. I teamed up with Amandine and Cristophe for the Aig d´Argentier. Weather and conditions was perfect. We went up the normal route on the west side, but skied down on the east. From the Saleina glacier we went throw the Fenetre de Saleina and Col du Tour, before we finished a long day with lots of good skiing down to Le Tour.

In the ARMY

KS2010 2010-03-08Mar.11.2010

The last two weeks I’ve been working with the Norwegian army in Setesdalsheiene in the southern part of Norway. I’ve been with Hærens Krigsskole (Military Academy) and its been normal winter courses based on Nils Faarlund’s and Norges Høgfjellsskole’s philosophy.

We had very good weather both weeks, cold and stable temperatures with little or no wind. Even though it’s been two weeks of work the day’s was never hard and it felt more or less like recreation, at least for the body. Setesdalsheiene has Norways most southern population of wild rain deer and we was lucky and met them many times. We believed that we once counted around 400, but it’s hard to tell.

Feb. 15. 2010

Since I came back to Romsdalen in early February skiing has been very good. It’s been snowing a lot, but in between its been sunny and perfect days for skitouring. On a beautiful day, Odd and me first walked up to Søre Klaua, lots of snow and hard to break trail, but very nice on the way down. From Stallen we walked up to Steinberget and continued up Kirketaket. The ski down the south face was amazing!

I’ve also had some work on snow lately, both guiding and avalanche courses. Posting some pictures from that as well.

ROMSDALSHORN MED FØRER – NORDVEGGEN ELLER HALLS-RENNE

På toppen av Romsdalshorn

På toppen av Romsdalshorn – Trollveggen bak


Romsdalshorn sett fra Romsdalen er et dramatisk skue – 1500 meter rett til værs. Og det er ikke noe mindre dramatisk når man er der oppe og ser ned i dalen. Romsdalshorn er et must for alle toppsamlere og for alle de som bare vil ha en fantastisk flott fjellopplevelse. I tillegg fører vi selvfølgelig også på alle andre fjell i Romsdalen.


Daværende statsminister Jens Stoltenberg på Romsdalshorn

Daværende statsminister, Jens Stoltenberg på Romsdalshorn sammen med Nils Nielsen

Heldigvis – for mange – så ser Romsdalshorn enda mer krevende ut enn den faktisk er. På avstand ser det nesten umulig ut, men jo nærmere mann kommer jo mer formasjoner dukker opp og man ser også at fjellet legger seg. Romsdalshorn er allikevel en skikkelig utfordring for de fleste. Og en opplevelse for livet.

Alternative ruter
Vi klatrer normalt Nordveggen, men fører også på Halls Renne. Disse to rutene skiller seg fra hverandre ved at Halls renne er litt lettere teknisk, men har mye mer klatring. Nordveggen oppleves gjerne litt mer luftig, men er ofte like grei som Halls renne. Vi returnerer som oftest ned Nordveggen.

Detaljer
Utgangspunkt: Åndalsnes/Isfjorden eller Vengedalen
Varighet: 7-9 timer tur-/retur
Når: Juni til første halvdel av oktober
Starttidspunkt: Normalt starter vi kl 07.00 i Vengedalen.
Booking: Kalenderen vår fylles opp tidlig for høysesong i juli og august, spesielt helgene. Man bør derfor booke i god tid. Erfaringsmessig må vi si nei til de fleste forespørsler som kommer sent.
Vanskelighetsgrad: Klatring opp til grad 4-, men turen krever først og fremst at du er i god fysisk form og at du er vant til å ferdes i fjellet.
Forkrav: Du trenger ikke klatreerfaring, men du bør være komfortabel med å ferdes i utsatt terreng. Om du aldri har klatret før anbefaler vi en kort innføring i klatring i forkant av turen.
Antall gjester: Maks 2 pr fører (dette er absolutt!)
Pris: 4.000 NOK for en gjest, 5.300NOK for to gjester
Inkludert i prisen er fører, alle hans kostnader og nødvendig sikkerhetsutstyr du evt trenger å låne av oss.

 

Mer informasjon nedenfor bildet

Nordveggen på Romsdalshorn

Nordveggen på Romsdalshorn

Utstyr:
Skotøy: Vi bruker ikke klippeklatresko for Romsdalshorn – du må ha solide fjellsko med tverrstiv såle.
Klær: Du må være forberedt på alt slags vær så du trenger ullundertøy og vind- og vanntett ytterklær i tillegg til noe som isolerer. Du må også ha lue og hansker – langrennshansker er praktisk da det er fint å klatre med.
Sekk: Du bør ha en sekk på 30-40liter, helst ikke større. Husk at i tillegg til klær, mat og drikke skal du også ha plass til sele, hjelm og kanskje et tau.
Sikkerhetsutstyr: Klatrehjelm og sele (dette kan lånes av oss)

Forbehold ved mye folk:
Romsdalshorn er et populært og utsatt fjell og faren for steinsprang øker drastisk med antall mennesker på fjellet. Vi må derfor ta noen forhåndsregler, er det mye folk på fjellet kan vi ende opp med å snu av sikkerhetsgrunner. I høysesong (juli og august) foretrekker vi å starte ekstra tidlig for å være først på fjellet.

SKAGASTØLSRYGGEN MED FJELLFØRER

Skagastølsryggen

Skagastølsryggen


Skagastølsryggen er kanskje Norges mest spektakulære og kjente ryggtravers. Den byr på flott klatring på overraskende fast fjell utsikten er fenomenal. Avslutningen på Store Skagastølstind er et antiklimaks for mange.


Vi har guidet denne turen mange ganger og det er en av våre absolutte favoritter. Selv om turen opp til Nordre Skagastølstind kan oppleves litt lang og monoton er den absolutt hvert det. Når man begynner bortover ryggen er utsikten fantastisk og klatringen blir flottere og flottere. De vanskeligste punktene er V-skaret og Halls-hammer, her klatrer vi tradisjonelle taulengder, men vi bruker tauet aktivt hele veien.
Skagastølsryggen er vesentlig mer krevende enn den vanlige turen til Store Skagastølstind. Turen er ikke så mye lengre verken i tid eller distanse, men den har mye, mye mer klatring og utsatt terreng.

Når du har gjort Skagastølsryggen er Styggedalsryggen en naturlig fortsettelse…

Detaljer
Utgangspunkt: Turtagrø
Varighet: 9-13 timer tur-/retur Turtagrø
Når: Juni til første halvdel av september.

Skiing and guiding in Romsdalen

Jan.10.2010

Early January has been very good for skiing here in Romsdalen. Cold temperatures and no wind has kept the snow good for a very long time. But the cold temperatures is also one reason why the snowpack is so unstable. So be careful.

This weekend I had a group from Sunnmøre on skitouring/avalanche course. Both weather  and snow was good…

HAUTE ROUTE – Ski Chamonix to Zermatt with guide

For many reasons, the classic ski tour from Chamonix to Zermatt has become one of the best known skitours in the world. Traveling from one one historic town to the next, it takes you into the heart of the Alps and into some amazing alpine terrain. You ski through high cols, hidden valleys, high peaks and spectacular glaciers. And the complex hut system in the Alps makes it possible to travel light and comfortable. No matter how much skiing you have done and how many places you have visited – Haute Route will be a unique experience.

 

Alternatives:
There is also a lot of other Haute Routes (high routes) in the Alps. But the Chamonix-Zermatt is the most famous and most popular and is often synonym to Haute Route. The Verbier variant is the easiest and most popular of this, but the the Original route is more challenging and spectacular, traveling the Plateau Couloir and visiting the Valsorey hut. Or you can do other different variants to the Chamonix-Zermatt tour. and you can also add some extra days after arriving in Zermatt, either ski to Saas Fee or ascend the summit of Breithorn or Monte Rosa.
And if you want to do a ski tour in other places in the Alps, such as Berner Oberland, Silveretta or other places, please let me know.

Where: Chamonix to Zermatt 
Duration: 5 or 6 days 
When: March to end of April
Routes: The Verbier Route or the Classic route via Valsorey Hut.
Difficulties: You should be used to ski in varied terrain, both up and down. Haute Route is never very difficult or very hard, but it still requires that you are an intermediate skier and that you are used to ski with a heavy (10-12kg) backpack.
If you are not sure if you got what it takes I recommend a training tour in Norway or the Alps in advance.
Gear: You need normal ski touring gear that are not to heavy.
Telemark gear works but alpine touring gear is much better. Snowboard or Splitboard
are not made for Haute Route! You will get a complete gear list when booking.
Ratio: 6:1 on the Verbier route and 4:1 on the Classic route

Price from: 
NOK 5500,- per person for 5 days
(Price includes IFMGA mountain guide and all expenses for your guide)

CLIMB ROMSDALSHORN WITH GUIDE – NORDVEGGEN MED FJELLFØRER

Romsdalshorn is one of the most famous mountains in Norway. The history of the first (and second) ascent, the shape of the mountain and the 1500 vertical meters down to the valley floor on the west, makes this a ultra classic, like Matterhorn in the Alpes. And the view of the Trollwall, across the valley, is breathtaking.

For those of you who are not used to climbing or moving in exposed terrain – get ready to be impressed!
