World-wide and local back-country courses
Jean Marc Pic is the mainstay of Alpine Experience’s world wide ski touring and adventure programmes. Jean Marc is UIAGM certified as well as being a qualified ski instructor.
In Jean Marc’s words:
“In winter, the untamed character of the mountains take on their full dimension; the snow wraps the summits in white and silence,
the light of a low sun creates unreal shadow and light…
Ski touring is without doubt the best way to explore these magical landscapes!
The steady climb allows you to gently take in your surroundings.
On the descent, the virgin snow offers herself just as she is :
if she’ s capricious, she demands your full attention and technical ability ;
if she’ s kind, then it’ s supreme happiness!
We prefer a convivial atmosphere to individual exploits!
Ski touring is a group activity in which mutual support and sharing are integral to the experience…..”
