Welcome to Elite Mountain Guides

EMG is based in Chamonix because world-reknowned climbing and skiing is available right on the doorstep, and from here we are well placed to operate all over the western Alps. We can organise expeditions to anywhere in the world and have particular experience in Polar regions; Phil Ashby won the Polar Challenge in 2003 and Mark Thomas is a highly experienced Greenland guide, with a vast CV of guided first ascents in the high arctic.


In addition to Phil and Mark, EMG has another fifteen or so guides, ski instructors and IML's with whom we work regularly, some of whom you can see on the about us pages. We have guides from France, Spain, the USA and Italy in addition to our British colleagues. We can handle large enterprises if necessary.


Our goal is to provide clients with a real adventure, in the safest manner and tailored to their ambitions. Be you beginner or experienced, you will be surprised how much you can achieve with the right direction and assistance. We want to help you learn the skills and the confidence to get the most out of yourself. If this sounds a little bit like a bootcamp mentality, let us reassure you that the main thing is to have fun!
