100% succesrate on last Mont Blanc of this season

Our summer season comes almost to an end. In a couple of days and weeks, huts will start to close down for winter, cable cars stop running and mountainguides take their well deserved rest and prepare themselves for a busy upcoming winterseason. Yesterday 7 very happy climbers returned to their homes with their brains full of unforgettable memories of their succesfull Mont Blanc climb earlier this week.

Uitzending over lawineonderzoek bij Jules Unlimited

Gisteravond was Edward op de Nederlandse TV (BNN/Vara, NPO3) in een item over lawine onderzoek in Zermatt, Zwitserland. Samen met Eva Koreman maakte hij een sneeuwprofiel en begroef hij Eva onder de sneeuw voor een lawine reddingsoefening met Edward's zoon Thomas als redder van Eva. De uitzending kun je hier terugkijken.

First tracks in the pocket!

Winter 2016-2017 couldn't start any better. Several snow showers last week have covered the Alps with a perfect layer of fresh powder cover. An exceptional start of season, especially for early November! Yesterday, after the necessary snow shoveling and office tasks, some time was left for a small skitour in winter wonderland.

End of summer, winter is coming!

It's been a nice summer with private guiding, which started pretty quick after the last skiprogram to Norway and Sweden. It then became very busy for us, after a Mont Blanc week, with the stage from Bern to Finhaut-Emosson passing in front of the Bekkerchalet. We are talking cycling of course, the Tour de France.  What a day that was, July 20. Edward rode the stage himself from Bern to Finhaut ahead of the peloton in the very early morning with a group of 40 enthusiastic riders from near Bern.

Winter update!

Long time no updates, but we were busy skiing and taking care of dozens of happy guests. Although winter has started late this year, since the first snowflakes fell down, we've been skiing and boarding powder almost every single day. Sometimes it needed some creativity and Edward's sense of finding good snow, but that's exactly what we are good at. Below a little glimpse of last weeks.
