Ian McIntosh 

Are you ready for an adventure to Ian’s secret spots in Chamonix and Courmayer?

Ian McIntosh is one of the top skiers in the world.  You will recognise him from the TGR movies, from Powder Magazine Awards, The Freeride World Tour, his endless crazy lines on Youtube and photos published in every ski magazine.  If you’ve always wanted to ski off piste, improve your backcountry skiing or explore Chamonix then who else is more qualified than Ian McIntosh???  With Chamonix and Courmayer being the Meccas of backcountry skiing Ian has spent a lot of time filming in these valleys and he is excited to show you his secret stashes.  

Whats going to go down?
Ian will help you work on your backcountry skills & techniques, learn how to chose a line, improve your Freeride skiing, teach you the knowledge you need to stay safe off piste, and of course adopt the athlete mindset that Ian uses to take your skiing to the next level. You will ski with Ian for 6 days, each day will be a different adventure.  You’ll spend the first day or two skiing inbounds focusing on your technique.  And on the other days you will explore these incredible valleys skiing peak to valley floors, open bowls, couloirs, ski touring, searching for pow and finding your way down to a nice cold beer at the end of the day

Where will I Stay?

You will stay in the stunning chalet, Eco Farm.  As Ian is an ambassador for POW (Protect our Winters) we want to be as environmentally conscious as we can so this beautifully restored eco friendly farm house will be your home for the week. It is one of the few eco friendly chalets in Chamonix, with geothermic heating system, rain water capture tanks, and restored from the original shell of the farmhouse using all the original timbers, walls, floors and stone to ensure minimal waste.  On top of that our chefs use locally sourced food from the valley and have a large vegetable garden in the summer where they make their own jams, jellies, chutneys for us to enjoy over winter.  Now the most important info – YES, theres a hot tub!

We will be a group of 10 and everyone will be a keen skier just like yourself.  There have been a lot of bromances that have developed on our Uthrive trips!   On the Uthrive trip with Ian last winter our guests said it was the best skiing of their life!  We skied couloirs, had amazing days exploring open bowls, skied pow down to small villages, went ski touring and were invited in by farmers for a beer who then towed us on their snowmobiles back to the nearest road.  On Ians trips every day is an adventure!  Read what our guests said about our Uthrive trips with Ian here
