The idea to create DirectMountain was born from a conversation with a friend who wanted to do an advanced ice climbing training course and who regretted not being able to quickly and easily find and compare the offers of different mountain guides on one website. One thing leading to another, from reflections to discussions, the project grew up, evolved and finally took shape, culminating mid-2016 in the launch of the www.directmountain.com website.
The platform now brings together many mountain professionals (mountain leaders, mountain guides, mushers, canyoning, climbing, skiing, mountain biking and caving instructors) who offer their services in mountaineering, canyoning, ice climbing, climbing, hiking, snowshoeing, mushing, ski touring and off-piste skiing, caving, trail, via ferrata and mountain biking.
Passionate about mountain sports for 25 years and trained as an engineer, I left the world of industry after working in it for 18 years to devote myself fully to the creation and now to the management of DirectMountain. I wanted to create a website that would put mountain professionals and internet users in touch with each other, that would be easy to use for everyone and that would allow clients to discuss and create a first link with the pro rather than choosing and paying in a few clicks for their next mountain adventure without having to know who will take them.
Today, you can easily and quickly find hundreds of activity offers on DirectMountain. You can thus easily and free of charge contact the professionals to organize and book your next experience, ask them for additional information and exchange with them before the departure.
As for the professionals, they find in DirectMountain a partner who respects their profession and their know-how, who knows how to accompany them efficiently to develop their communication and to have a profitable presence on the internet.
See you soon in the mountains!
