Originally from Tarbes, I studied at Luchon where I began to practice hiking, climbing

And then mountaineering.

At the end of my studies I went to work in Marseille but the calanques did not suffice

Me so after a year I returned to Luchon.

I then intensified my activities in the mountains and learned skiing (although a little late).

I then had the opportunity to be part of the mountaineering team FFME Pyrenees and that gave me the desire and passion to focus on becoming a high mountain guide.

In the winter I work at the ski resort of Luchon-Superbagneres as a piste rescuer and specialize in

Avalanche rescue with dogs and in the summer as a high mountain guide.  In the off season I do mountain climbing and work with ropes.

I was a volunteer firefighter for 12 years with the specialty of mountain rescue unit leader. In the winter I am a tracker/rescuer and the rest of the year I am a mountain guide.

My wish: To help you discover and travel the mountains in all seasons on foot with crampons, ice axes or ski.

The Summer

Mountaineering: climb the summits either through the normal tracks or large vertical faces or over ridges.

Hiking in the mountains: the best way to discover a massif is from one valley to another.

Climbing in the mountains: climb the summits by the most vertiginous slopes with the help of jammers and friends.

The Winter

Mountaineering: armed with crampons and ice axes, traverse the snowy corridors, mixed ridges of (snow, ice and rock) or frozen chutes.

Off-piste Skiing: leave the groomed and over-populated areas and trace the steep slopes, corridors and forests.

Nordic Skiing: tired of downhill skiing, climbing a ski summit is always a privileged moment rewarded by beautiful descents in magnificent wild settings.

Ice Waterfalls: equipped with ice cleats and ice axes, the climbing of these structures gives you great emotion and pleasure.
