Ski Guides In Switzerland With Us

Ongosa do all the searching for you. It's the easy way to find your perfect off-piste ski guide in Switzerland! We do the leg-work, using our hand-picked network of the most experienced, highest-rated mountain guides - just let us know exactly what you'd like.

Ongosa are able to work with any guiding agency, company or independent mountain guide, who meets our exacting standards and demonstrates a genuine passion for Switzerland’s backcountry and ski guiding. We like to work with guides who organise a safe itinerary specifically to your preferences, and go the extra mile by providing equipment etc. We’re constantly discovering new, recommended guides in Switzerland and the Alps too! This includes some of the greatest Alpinists in the world and goes for patient, private ski guides, ex-pros, freeriders and locals who know every hidden off-piste gem.

Why Ski In Switzerland

Some of the best ski conditions in the Alps, and the world, are in Switzerland. Spectacular resorts like Zermatt, to hidden gems like Klosters. Switzerland’s off-piste terrain is outstanding, but with plenty of glaciers, crevasses, couloirs, linking passes and hidden huts, you’ll experience it best with a ski guide. That said, for the fair-weather skiers, Switzerland hosts plenty of gentle descents and sees many blue-bird days too!

The variety in Switzerland means all sorts of specialist ski guides work here, and their standard of qualification and experience is exceptionally high. Consequently, we’ll be able to find you confidence-boosting ski guides to show you where to head in bad weather, tackle a ‘bucket-list’ line, or find fresh tracks a few days after a snowfall. Our customers’ favourite resorts seem to be Zinal, Andermatt and Verbier, but we love meeting new ski guides in less well-known resorts too: picking their brains for local knowledge and finding out how they work. Just let us know which resort you’ve booked, and what kind of guiding or trip you and your group would like.

The best instructors or guides for your trip, your skill level, your group. Just one form away. Let’s get planning...

Tell Us What You Want

We promote independent ski guides and boutique guiding agencies over the larger organisations, because we think you’re more likely to get access to the most highly-qualified backcountry guide, with more experience and passion for their job, and therefore a better experience - simple!

We work with mountain guides who come with glowing recommendations and have exceptional local knowledge that means that they’ll always hunt out the best conditions - that you often wouldn’t find yourself. However it is that you want to explore the backcountry, we make it easy for you to hire a ski guide and enjoy your first few turns off piste, spend a few days hut-to-hut touring, discover hidden couloirs or take on Europe’s world-famous descents. These guides combine years of experience with a commitment to passing on their passion for off-piste skiing, the mountains and the backcountry in their resort; your time with them will be the highlight of any ski holiday.

Let us know what you need, and one of our team will do all the work to find your ideal mountain guide. You can always chat to us further about your requirements on + 44 (0) 203 176 7063. We aim to offer you three suitable options and estimate that responses may take up to 48 hours, but that's easier than doing your own research, and holds the greatest chance of finding the best guide for you!
