Tim has a varied background which has taken him to all of earth's continents and he continues to travel widely. Skiing's his passion - he spends half a year, every year on skis! It's a great way to explore the mountains, keep fit and enjoy a bit of adventure along the way. Tim operates throughout the Alps from December till May and offers a full program to suit all abilities: Heli skiing, off piste guiding, avalanche training courses and a full ski touring season including Mont Blanc & Monte Rosa ascents. He also mixes travel with skiing and sailing - recent adventures have included Greenland, Arctic Norway, Svalbard and the Antarctic Peninsula.
Sorry this has taken so long, just wanted to say thanks for a fantastic few days skiing, it feels like it was an age ago. I had a great time thanks to you finding some epic runs and snow. James, Chamonix Off Piste and Touring We spent Friday and Saturday skiing with you - we had a truly fantastic time! We had had mixed experiences with French and Italian guides previously but skiing with you was a totally different experience - you gauged our skill levels and gradually moved us along progressing all the time and it was both a great experience and great fun. We will definitely book you again. Thanks a lot! John F - Chamonix Off Piste Tim is a guide of integrity and fun, with a sense of adventure balanced with care. He pushed us to our limits for unforgettable memories and ski pleasure. I always had absolute confidence in Tim’s judgement, somehow taking us to the edge, but knowing our limits, and then delivering thrilling runs and great snow, making all the effort worthwhile. Thanks so much Tim for sharing your extraordinary world Ian S Bernese Oberland Ski Tour
