Blanka Sepulveda

Born 29 September 1975 in Czech Republic. 

I grew up near the Beskydy mountains in Czech Republic. I did not spend my teenage years skiing but horse riding! Later I became totally addicted to rock climbing and mountaineering which changed my life and eventually brought me to Chamonix in 2003. I discovered skiing and ski touring here and became super passionate about it. As well as my friends, it is the mountains, our local playground, that is keeping me here in Chamonix!

Favourite activities: off piste skiing, ski touring, ski mountaineering and rock climbing.

Corrado « Korra » Pesce

Born at Galliate in Italy the 09/06/1981

I moved to Chamonix at the age of 19 and began guiding in 2011.

I have climbed many iconic mountains in wonderful locations such as Nepal, India, Patagonia and Canada.

My passion and commitment has pushed me to test my skills on some of the Alps most difficult and technical climbs.

Preferred mountain activity:

Climbing rock and ice on the biggest walls and the most beautiful mountains.

Elodie Le Comte

Born 05 august 1978 in Genava- Swizerland

I was born and raised in Switzerland, near Geneva. I discovered the mountain late, during a trip to Latin America after my baccalaureate. I worked for 8 years as a researcher and professor of history at the University of Geneva before graduating as a Mountain Accompanist in 2012, then as a Mountain Guide at ENSA in 2015. Since then, I have close to Chamonix, where I share my time between the activity of “classic” guide (within the Chamonix Experience team and as independent with my private clients), the training of the guides as a trainer at ENSA, and the coaching of young mountaineers for the FFME National Mountaineering Team. And of course, I spend all my free time climbing, traveling and exploring the mountains in the Alps and around the world!

Favourite activities: climbing and mountaineering

Johann Courcelle

Born in Chamonix the 18th of July 1975

I was born in Chamonix with skis on the feet, though I started to work as a sailing instructor on the west coast of France near Bordeaux and as a ski instructor in Les Orres first and completed my exams respectively in 1997 and 1998.

I definitely turned my look on the summits in 2000 and began to train to become a mountain guide in order to stay in Chamonix all year around. 
I completed my Uiagm course in 2007 and worked as a guide ever since. 
I have been travelling from New Zealand to Alaska and l love discover new places while climbing, skiing or simply hiking. 

I opened a few lines in the valley either with skis, snowboard or telemark. 
Calm and patient, I really love to teach my guests and get them better in all activities. 
When I am not in the mountains you can find me with my family or taking pictures or flying a drone which is my most recent professional qualification”

Favourite activities: ski-touring during winter time and classic alpinism during the summertime.

Growing up in a city surrounded by mountains, Mael started skiing, snowboarding, climbing and mountaineering at a very young age. His passion for mountains led him to his UIAGM mountain guide qualification, which he achieved in 2015.

Favourite activities: Going fast in the mountain is my passion! Skiing, flying, falling, rolling…

MICHEL Julien

Born 21 May 1985 at Grenoble, France

I was born in Grenoble with direct access to the mountains. I started traveling the mountains from a very young age around my home. And then this passion pushed me to explore mountains further and further. First in the Alps then in Peru, Pakistan, Nepal, USA, Morocco, Jordan. I have always had a lot of fun sharing and transmitting my passion for the mountains. This naturally led me to the profession of guide which I graduated since 2015.

Favourite activities: skiing, ridge run.

Olivier Pujol

Born 23/09/1973 in Grenoble

Olivier spent his childhood on skis, chasing after ibex around the mountains. He realised his dream and qualified as a UIAGM mountain guide in 2010.

The OGSO Marinelli skis are Olivier’s choice, as he prefers big skis that are stable and solid for going fast.

“I prefer to ski full on off-piste rather than ski touring in the winter.” Olivier

Raphael Thiot

Born the 19/10/1976 at Romans sur isère 

Discovery of the mountain in 1992 by a waterfall in the Ecrins massif, relearning skiing in 1993 by ski touring and quickly ski mountaineering … I have never managed to get rid of my passion for the mountains and even less of the desire to share it.

Ice and mixte climbing, rock climbing, travel in mountain with my skis…this is what I love to do.
