Creation of the mountain guide’s office…
In 1993, in Morzine-Avoriaz, the qualified mountain hike leaders and high mountain guides came together to create the “Bureau de la Montagne”, with the aim of providing mountain and leisure activities around the region of Le Chablais, les Portes du Soleil and in the Mont-Blanc chain. A few years later, its name was changed to the “Bureau des Guides de Morzine-Avoriaz“.
To begin with, activities on offer were limited to climbing and the mountains in summer. In winter, the Guides’ office only offered skiing and snow shoeing outings… wishing to follow the evolution of mountain activities, the Guides’ office then added activities such as canyoning, via ferrata and mountain biking aiming to provide a wider choice for mountain lovers staying in Morzine.
Very quickly the team increased and nowadays counts 15 members all with the same dynamic and young state of mind ! (more information on our team.)
