France / Northern Alps
Savoie/Maurienne, Saint-Julien-Montdenis

I have been a hiking guide for over 30 years. I have always lived in Savoie and I have been to the mountains since I was young. It is quite naturally that, by passion and desire to practice a job related to the outdoors, I chose this job. I also have a Master II "Sustainable development and mountain territories", passed to the University of Savoie.

I work in the Bureau Montagne des Arves, group mainly located in Maurienne, in the valley of Arves (Saint Sorlin and Saint Jean d'Arves).

During the winter, we supervise tourists and groups snowshoeing (adults and school) in these ski resorts.

In the summer, we organize hikes on various themes: wildlife observation, aquatic hiking, Nordic walking, family hikes and of course more sporting hikes (for a day, for two days with overnight in a hut or tent). Over the years and my professional practice, I have specialized a little in areas such as the human environment (heritage, mountain farming ...), botany ... without neglecting the other aspects of the mountain environment.

I propose circuits and stays in our massif but also in Vanoise and in the Southern Alps, and destinations abroad to discover other horizons: Italy, Austria, Morocco, Bulgaria ...

I also run a training center: the Training Center for Mountain, Environment and Sport, to make short CIMMES. I propose mainly training on a weekend on naturalistic themes.
I also collaborated as a trainer with some training centers and schools: GRETA Savoie, IPAC Annecy, Lycée des Métiers of the mountain of St Michel de Maurienne, the University of Savoie ...

It is with pleasure that I will accompany you on the paths of these mountains, to share with you my passion and my experience.

Bernard Carminati,
Departure : Accompagnement en Montagne

J'ai fait plusieurs sorties avec des amis accompagnés par Jean Marc. Un régal. Jamais avare d'une anecdote, d'un conseil, d'une information. Bref tout en cheminant, on apprend des tas de chose sur la faune, la flore, l'environnement, la montagne, la vie d'aujourd'hui et de jadis dans les hameaux perdus.
Un passé et un savoir ancrés le milieu montagnard, pas des trucs appris à l'occasion d'un examen et pour la nécessité du job. Un accompagnateur comme on voudrait en rencontrer à chaque fois.

Alain Brouard,
Departure : Sorties rando et raquettes

Super accompagnateur à pied ou en raquettes, il connais très bien la montagne en hiver ou en été, convivial avec toujours une attention pour chacun, un vrai pro, je me suis régalé à chacune de ses sorties.
