Miles is an internationally qualified IFMGA guide based in Chamonix, France where he has lived for the past 15 years. From this base at the foot of Mont Blanc, Miles guides and climbs year-round throughout France, Italy and Switzerland.
Miles's knowledge of the Alps can help you make the most of your precious time here by finding you the best snow for skiing and the best conditions for mountaineering. Miles is happy to take time to explain techniques and teach about the mountains. He has climbed in India, Nepal, Pakistan, Australia, New Zealand, Thailand, Africa, USA, Canada and Europe.
He is frequently to be found skiing locally, in the Mont Blanc Massif and in neighbouring Italy and Switzerland. Miles likes to pass on skills and techniques, and is the author of “Crevasse Rescue for Skiers and Snowboarders”.
In earlier years Miles climbed the North Face of the Eiger and the North Face of the Matterhorn solo. Now older and wiser, he's taken to other challenges such as skiing the entire Haute Route end-to-end in 24 hours!
