I had a fantastic 4 mornings snow shoeing with Mark. He is knowledgeable and entertaining in equal measure. I felt very safe however technical the routes were. I can thoroughly recommend him.

My boyfriend and I went on a private via ferrata weekend with Mark a couple of weeks ago. It was amazing! Mark is an excellent mountaineer & guide. I was quite anxious about doing a via ferrata (climbing is more my boyfriends thing than mine) but I needn’t have worried as Mark put me at ease, explained clearly what we had to do, carried out safety checks etc... Completing our first via ferratas was exhilarating, i’d definitely recommend it. I also really liked that Mark was able to tell me what was coming up ahead, if there was any overhang, a wire bridge and how much further there was to go. It’s like he knows every rock and crevice on each of the via ferratas. I really can not recommend Mark enough.
Thanks again for a brilliant weekend

Although the weather was appalling my sister & I had an enjoyable walking weekend last week. Mark was very knowledgable and looked after us very well. The hotel (Les Grillons) which Mark booked for us was delightful.

We have been snowshoeing with Mark for five consecutive winters and have nothing but praise for his services. Mark has lived in the French Alps for many years and so has a wealth of local knowledge. This, combined with his extensive qualifications ensures an informed safe experience whatever the weather. We have stayed at Arreches in the Beaufortain, in Pralognan and in the Haute Maurienne valley, all three locations providing excellent snowshoeing and accommodation. Mark conveniently collects us from Geneva airport, does all the driving during the week and arranges the accommodation.
Add to this Mark's friendly, chatty personality, his local knowledge, his mountain rescue experience and his avalanche awareness expertise and you are guaranteed an excellent trip.
Mark also offers a range of other outdoor activities apart from snowshoeing, we have not sampled these, but I am sure they are run in just the same professional manner.
We have used Mark's private guiding services as we prefer not being in a group and able to stop and look at the view whenever we want.
We have no reservations at all in recommending Mark, have a look at his website simplysavoie.com
