Adventure Base's guides operate a wide range of alpine and climing courses in and around Chamonix as well as all over the world. They were founded in 2005 by Kenton Cool and Guy Willett as they completed their professional IFMGA Mountain and Ski Guides qualification.
With the company directors both being experts in skiing and climbing adventures (on a personal and professional level) for many years, Adventure Base was always going to have a well chosen and well designed array of courses, holidays and expeditions to choose from.
Their alpine courses range from off-piste skiing clinics to improve your technique, to exploring the backcountry and ski touring in amazing locations throughout the Alps.
Their skiing expeditions cater for both hardened ski mountaineers, those that are new to touring, or for those that are keener on the down-hill but looking for an exotic or remote adventure. They offer guided tours to places such as Arctic Norway's Lyngen Alps or Alaska's Chugach Mountains which are sure to inspire.
With Adventure Base you can choose to join a course, an expedition or hire a private guide for your very own bespoke adventure.
Their courses or private guiding will take you from your first steps rock climbing or ice climbing in stunning locations, to scaling Mont Blanc, the Matterhorn and other alpine gems.
They also offer a number of world wide expeditions that include the summit of Everest, the seven summits and classic Himalayan peaks such as Ama Dablam and Mera Peak.
