  • Bio

    Neil HitchingsNeil qualified as an IFMGA Mountain and Ski guide in 1995, and has amassed a huge amount of experience guiding ascents, courses and ski-touring in the mountains around his home, Chamonix.

    Originally from the North of England, Neil started climbing as a teenager and moved to France in the late 1970s where he worked as one of the first English Ski Patrollers in the region, as well as establishing a successful rope access business over the summer months. In the early 90s Neil decided to pursue a career in mountain guiding, and his wealth of experience working in the mountains over the years meant he soon qualified with IFMGA status. Neil works for our European guiding team, leading ascents, courses and ski-touring trips throughout the European Alps.
