Had a terrible experience. We have always used ESF ski guides on our ski trips. With Frank it was the first time we went elsewhere. To our dismay, he was a nuisance and a spoiler of a couple of very precious days, having traveled thousands of miles for this trip. He has the resort knowledge but lacks on manners. Attitude...

He has been there for 30 years and knows those mountains like the back of his hand. He was very safe and always checked beacons, etc. He picks you up from your hotel and... More

I recently visited Chamonix with my sister and reached out to Franck Chapon at Chamonix Sport Aventure to help us plan some outdoor activities. We ended up choosing the via ferrata climbing trip and tandem paragliding- both activities were a blast! Franck was with us for both and was a very knowledgable, friendly, trustworthy guide. He was also punctual and... More

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....

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
