Info

Introducing the guide

Sam is a professional mountain guide trained at ENSA in Chamonix.

Why are we offering this offer?

The "Chasing powder" is the essence of Blacksheep: to be reactive, free and to go where it is good to ride, at the right time. Edouard "Dude" and Sylvain "Budy", friends and fellow climbers, founders of Blacksheep, started van rental in 2011 with the goal of offering customers a tool, to enjoy all the playgrounds offered by Mother Nature. This tool is the van fitted out.
Today, Blacksheep goes further by sharing its know-how in the organization of packaged mountain stays acquired with its Blacksheep-igloo activity (meal and night in Igloo) and its passion for outdoor sports. This ski touring package is ideal for discovering and learning about hiking in the best possible conditions. This packaged stay is offered to those who are comfortable skiing and who wish to start skiing safely.

Insurance

With our vehicles, we offer franchise buyout packs to reduce your financial liability in the event of a responsible accident. We do not offer insurance for sports activities.

Weather

The guide is the only one empowered to decide the program and the possible cancellation of the service if the weather does not allow a satisfactory level of safety. In this case, the customer will be offered a postponement date.

Special meals / allergies

If you have a particular diet, we recommend that you do not select a Food-pack. Plan your own meals.
