In Winter, Kariboo Adventure specialises in providing ski instruction and off-piste guiding, Vallée Blanche descents, ice climbing, and ski touring.

If you are looking for a ski guide for your Vallée Blanche descent, or for your heli-skiing experience in nearby Switzerland or Italy, we can provide.
If you are looking for the best private ski tuition in Chamonix, then look no further.

James Kaler is one of the few Chamonix guides who is both qualified as a ski instructor and a ski guide.
This makes him perfectly adaptable if you are a mixed ability group.


Whether you are an absolute beginner, or intermediate skier or snowboarder wanting to improve, Kariboo Adventure provides the best private ski instruction in and around the Chamonix valley. For individuals or your own private group.
If you are a confirmed off-piste skier, James Kaler can take you down some of the best off-piste routes, couloirs and snow fields in Chamonix, Courmayeur, and Les Contamines, and can also provide off-piste instruction if you need to improve your technique.
If you ski off-piste, then no ski trip to Chamonix is 100% complete unless you ski the infamous Vallée Blanche – our 24km long itinerary ski route from the Aiguille du Midi down the glacier through majestic scenery, past towering seracs and hidden crevasses.
Technically it is not possible to heli-ski in Chamonix, so we will take you to nearby Switzerland or Italy for your heli-skiing experience where there are some amazing drops to be had.
Ski touring is becoming more and more popular, and Kariboo Adventure will ensure you have just the adventure that you want to experience: be that a one day taster or a 3 day wilderness expedition.
Near Chamonix are some superb ice walls and frozen waterfalls that provide an elegant playground for ice climbers – be you beginner or experienced, you are assured of an unforgettable time.
