The term “mountaineering” covers a wide range of activities, and during the summer season we use various skill sets. We have chosen to mention only a few key climbs: Gervasutti pillar, North Face Piz Badile, Kuffner ridge, Frendo spur along with all of the key summits of the Mt. Blanc and Oisans mountain ranges. We should not forget classics such the Gran Paradiso, the Matterhorn and the Eiger.
Mountain guiding does not only involve guiding climbs and skiing adventures. Our guiding services are also required for setting up a safe work environment for crews when shooting films, photos and commercials in high mountain ranges. We have been asked to organize team building activities for multi-nationals, to coach Olympic athletes in their mental and physical preparation, to organize weddings and anniversary celebrations in a mountain setting. The possibilities are endless, and Peakpowder strives to meet the needs of its various clients :
