Hi everyone,

I live in cham and I spend a lot of time out touring. I have alot of time off coming up and I would like a few extra partners.

I'm touring with a fair few skiers at moment and would like to meet up with some more split borders.

I'm interested in doing high mountain stuff only really so up in the Glaciers. aiguille rouges is ok but it's pretty busy place.

I've been climbing in the area for about 5 years and I have been touring in the area for a year. Snowboarding for about 7.

Thanks

Matt

I'm making a return trip to Cham this spring, March 23 - April 6 with 3 other guys (all skiers). We're staying at the Ski Station hostel the whole time but might make a side trip to Zermatt. We have booked 4-5 days with a local guide that we skied with on our last trip but hope to do a few moderate tours on our own weather/conditions permitting. It would be great to hook up with a local splitter with some knowledge of the area so as to reduce the chances of killing ourselves. Let me know if you're interested.

Hi Matt,
How are ya? Looks like the snow keeps dumping over there in Cham. Im a splitboarder from Alaska. I will actually be flying into Geneva and coming to Chamonix on this coming Tuesday, December 18th for a week. I actually dont have a place to stay yet, but plan on getting out in the mountains every day. I have not been there before, but have my splitboard gear, crevasse gear, crampons, axe, etc. basically everything to play in the big mountains. I will be able to check my email when I have wifi and also will have a cell with me. If your around, get back to me in the next day and provide your contact details if you like. Maybe we can go shred!

Hey Matt,

Hope you had a fun new year! I'm in cham for a few weeks and really want to meet some splitters. I'm a very experienced snowboarder, been splitting a fair bit, though just snapped my old board so having fun with a new setup! but don't know the area at all which makes being adventurous tricky, especially in early jan snow conditions!

Any chance you have time to head out either before the 8th or after the 10th?

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Alex
