    Hi, Andy.

    I'd start by looking on '' to see if Andy Perkins is free on the day you are interested in. Even if he is not he knows all the other British mountain guides based in Chamonix so should be able to find you someone.

    Did you find someone?  I'm going with Avalanche Academy Chamonix next week and can report back if you are interested.

    Hallo Andy

    I skied la Vallée Blanche about 10 years ago and signed up with a group through la Compagnie des Guides de Chamonix which has an office in the town centre. As I remember, there were six of us (5 x French and me) plus the guide, Christian. I can't remember the cost of the guiding. Even with the full ski pass, there was an additional cost of 50 Euros or so to use the very highest lift to access the top of the route.   

    Bonne chance ! Graham
