Perkins - International Mountain Guide
Welcome. I'm a mountain guide based in Chamonix, and hold
the International Federation of Mountain Guides Associations
(IFMGA) carnet, the legal requirement to guide on glacial
terrain in the European Alps. From a base looking directly
towards Mont Blanc, the highest mountain in Europe, I offer
guiding services in all mountain activities.
These include off-piste skiing, ski touring and ice climbing
in the winter season, and alpine mountaineering in the summer.
I also offer rock climbing, big wall climbing and expeditions
to remote areas, film safety work and instruction in rope
access and rescue techniques.
Living in Chamonix with its wealth of skiing and mountaineering
potential, about half my work is based here in the valley.

the Aiguille du Midi. I operate frequently in other parts
of the Alps, such as Tignes/Val dIsere, Zermatt and
Saas Fee. Outside the Alps, I climb in the Scottish mountains
in winter and have a wealth of expedition experience in Patagonia,
Arctic Norway and the Himalaya
Having gained so much from over 20 years of skiing and mountaineering,
I get huge satisfaction from passing that experience on to
others. Whatever your ambitions in the mountains, it's my
mission and pleasure to help turn your dreams into reality.
