Mountain Guide Office – AIGMB
The Bureau de Guides or the Mountain Guide Office in Chamonix is the home of the official guides of the area. In the winter they take clients on a variety of snow and ice bound activities including: skiing the Vallée Blanche, off-piste skiing, ski touring, ski courses, ice fall climbing, heli-skiing and extreme skiing.
In the summer, when Chamonix is equally as busy, they also guide for mountaineering, climbing, glacier trekking and leasing expeditions for those who wish to try and summit Mont-Blanc, a climb whose elevation is greater than that of the Everest Base Camp to the summit.
