We were very fortunate to stumble across Chamonix Sport Aventure whilst rather belatedly trawling the Internet for a ski instructor for the busiest week in the skiing year. Franck was really helpful from first contact and found a suitable instructor for our two teenagers . Two weeks before our holiday that instructor was taken ill and Franck himself took over... More

Franck Capon taught our family to ski in one day... He was absolutely fantastic and concentrated on confidence and technique. Laurence was our mountain guide and instructor for a further three mornings and took us places we would never have believed we could ski. Much better value than ski lessons - we advanced very quickly and they were tremendous.

This was my second time using this guide group. The first time was two years ago to do Valee Blanche. Amazing experience with a knowledgeable guide who kept us all safe. This trip we couldn't do Valee Blanche due to Avalanche risk. It is important to note the same week we tried to go other guides took people up the... More

I took one of the Chamonix Sport Adventure Guide/Ski instructors (Christian) for a private off piste day lesson in early January. Snow conditions this year werent the best at all but we still managed good off piste all day with some fresh snow. The instruction definately helped improve my level and set me up for my off piste course during... More

We had a great experience with Chamonix Sport Aventure. We booked a day for off piste tuition to brush up on our skills as we had not been off piste in deep powder for a few years. Franck was a fantastic teacher and we really improved in just one day. We are not expert skiers so it was great to... More

Great experience. Franck, the owner, personally answered all my questions via email promptly and clearly. Also, the cost of their mountain climbing guiding is less than via the official Chamonix guide office. I first did a day of climbing training with Stéphane. He was a very good teacher, and honest and accurate about my ability and condition. He predicted correctly... More

We booked "Introductory Tandem Flight" for my wife and 8 year old son and "Cross Country flights of long duration" for my self. Our pilots, Fred og Gaby, were super friendly, competent and service minded. I would recommend them without hesitation.

Franck's expertise, equipment and demeanor couldn't have been better. We experienced a spectacular and thrilling glacier trek, and highly recommend Chamonix Sport Adventure to anyone considering this activity.

The short story is that I would recommend Franck and his company without any hesitation. If you want to do almost any summer or winter sporting activity in Chamonix, such as paragliding, skiing, climbing, canyoning, hiking or such like, then I would strongly recommend that you contact Franck. Franck, and his partner Lyn (hopefully I got the spelling right) and... More
