Established in 2007, Frost Guiding runs Guided Alpine Mountaineering & Climbing Courses and Ski Tours from Arolla, Switzerland. Arolla has great local mountaineering and ski touring and is close to other Swiss Alpine centres (Chamonix, Verbier, Zermatt, Saas Fee, Zinal and the Bernese Oberland).

Our Mountaineering Courses and Climbing Holidays cater for climbers of all levels from Introduction to Alpine Climbing to climbing classic alpine peaks like Mont Blanc, Eiger and the Matterhorn and our demanding "Performance Alpinism" weeks.

In winter, we run Ice Climbing courses in Arolla, Cogne and Kandersteg plus have a full program of Guided Ski Touring and Off Piste Skiing in the French and Swiss Alps.

Director, Graham Frost, is an experienced IFMGA and British Mountain Guide, the British Mountain Guides Alpine Area Representative and permanent resident in the Arolla valley. "Our Mountain Guides aim to help you get the most out of your time in the Alps, whatever your ability, age or ambition".
