Alpine mountaineering

Calum offers bespoke climbing and mountaineering courses in the Alps throughout the winter, spring and summer season. Based centrally in the Alps, Calum is guiding in the Mont Blanc massif and in the mountains of Valais and Bernese Oberland in Switzerland on a regular basis. Whether you’re looking for an introductory course in the skills of glacier travel or have more ambitious objectives like an ascent of the Hornli ridge on the Matterhorn or the North Face of the Eiger, then Calum can offer a bespoke itinerary to suit your needs.

Ski touring

Muskett mountaineering offers a number of guided multi day ski trips such as the classic Chamoix to Zermatt haute route and the Austrian Silvretta tour. We deal with itinerary, hire equipment and mountain hut booking for a smooth and stress free experience.

We also offer guided day tours. For individual day tours we run courses in the Chamonix, Aravis and Chablais (Samoens-Morzine) areas. We can also offer guided itineraries and trips across the Alps for three or more days of bookings.

Off-piste skiing

Calum offers off-piste ski guiding based from Samoens in the French Alps. With a knowledge of the best off-piste lift accessible skiing around the Grand Massif, Morzine, Avoriaz and the Chamonix valleys we can provide a memorable day out for you and your friends and family whether you’re taking your first steps in off-piste skiing or descending the breathtaking Vallee Blanche above Chamonix. We can provide off-piste skiing equipment such as avalanche beacon, shovel and probe and if necessary harness, crampons and an ice axe.

Rock Climbing

North Wales is one of the most diverse rock climbing areas in the world. There are sea cliffs, mountain crags, quarries and boulders with over seven different rock types in a 60 mile area. With 14 different climbing guidebooks and different micro climates it’s almost always possible to find dry rock at any time of year. If you’re after rock climbing guiding or bouldering at any level in North Wales then get in touch.

Mountain/Fell running

As a former junior Welsh international fell runner, Calum has lots of experience running in the hills and he still gets out as often as he can to keep fit and get into the mountains when time is in short supply. If you’re interested in a week of guided running in Snowdonia or in the Alps then Calum can tailor trips to your needs whether you’re after day trips or multi day journeys such as running the classic tour de Mont Blanc.

The 14 Peaks

The 14 peaks is the classic mountain challenge of Snowdonia. The 14 peaks are the mountains above 3000ft in Wales linked together in one long day out in the hills. At approximately 26 miles in length over rugged terrain it is not a challenge to be underestimated as good mountain fitness and pacing pay dividends in a successful attempt. So if you’re interested in being guided on this grand day out as a walk or a run then get in touch with Calum for a quote.
