Here is a small list of UIAGM mountain guides that are awesome and fun to be with in the mountains.
Olivier Roduit is a guide also living in this valley. Olivier and I often work together on trips. He wrote a climbing guide book for this and the neighboring valleys.
Gilbert Hiroz lives in Verbier and knows these hills like the back of his hand. The master of understatement and a really nice guy to be with.
Stephen Hadik is another guide living in Verbier who is always ready to go out for a climb.
David Michaud lives in Verbier and is really nice to be with. He does a good job of entertaining while guiding.
Marie Hiroz, living in Verbier, has a unique way of taking her clients here and there. It’s always nice to meet her high in the hills.
Doug Coombs passed away, skiing in 2006. He was a buddy of mine from way back. He worked out of La Grave and Jackson Hole and was instrumental in starting the whole Valdez, Alaska scene. Doug and I organized two superb weeks of heli-skiing in Greenland. It is very difficult to believe this guy, with so much character, is really gone.
John Falkiner- The one and only, the real thing, John Falkiner. Do I need to say more about this classic dude?
Kathy Cosley and Mark Houston are two American certified guides who are really nice to be with. Their site is incredibly informative!
Cherries von Maur is an Accompagnateur de Montagne. If you are looking to do some hikes around any of these valleys, and get fantastic instruction about the flora, fauna, geology and more, you will learn tons of good info from Cherries.
