Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Hi there
Apart from Colletts and Ski Miquel, are there any other companies offering guiding services anymore? We are lazy; hate map reading and like the company of the other skiers.
Thanks

Not in France for sure.

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

I don't think Italy either. Mind you, chalet type operations were very franco-focused.

SoPiB, Guff

(Otherwise, on most bashes you should be able to find several people at a similar standard who have been several times so have a fairly good idea where they are going)

Generally guiding services have fallen foul of rules regarding ski instructor qualifications - I.E. the minute they are guiding people for money they should be qualified instructors (or high mountain guides) (at least in France). As a result it seems to have mostly (if not completely) died off because having ski instructors do it increases the price too much. (Easier to offer lessons and let people decide if they want them).

Did that legal dispute in France over ski leading ever come to a conclusion? If I recall it was brought against Le Ski in Val D'Isere.

Club Med include guiding by an ESF instructor as part of your package. I was in Val d’Isere last week with them.

MGS Ski offer group skiing every afternoon included as part of their packages. The groups are led by an ESF instructor and an MGS employee tags along too. I seem to recall some of the higher ability groups headed off piste the whole time. It was great for me, as the ESF instructor introduced us to suitable off piste opportunities we'd never have found without the service. He also gave us quite a few tips on technique too.

Just back from Andorra with Neilson, the guided trips are led by local instructors contracted by Neilson. There was no additional charge for using the service, it's part of the package price whether you choose to use it is up to you

We used Nielson for 2 seasons before Covid for the guiding, but it was restricted to 2 sessions over the week. We are away with Ski Miquel this week, and have had guiding every day which has been amazing. We also did a Club Med a while ago, again our group loved the guiding.
