I took only a day's instruction with Franck Chapon last year and liked him so much that I came back again this year - for more days. Franck is an excellent instructor - He is patient and cool with you, guiding you at every step and assessing your progress, giving you productive feedback and also challenging you to do better....

I am so glad for getting in touch with Franck from Chamonix sport Aventure for ski touring in Vallée Blanche - col d'Entrèves. We could not have wished for a better experience. Franck was very professional, helpful and friendly. I would not hesitate to contact Chamonix Sport Aventure again. I can only encourage everyone to take a trip with Chamonix... More

Ski touring with Franck Chapon is an once in a lifetime experience. He was very professional, patient and showed us places we could never dream of seeing in the ski resorts. We can only recommend!

My friend & I were only skiing for a couple of days and it was due to be poor weather so we decided to get someone to ski with us on the first day to make sure we made the most of it. We were lucky enough to get Laurence, we had such a great time with her on the... More

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

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
