Our knowledge & experience
In 2005 Martijn Schell Ski & Mountaineering was founded by the Dutch mountain guide Martijn Schell. Thanks to his very unique and personal approach, he took very good care of his guests, and his name soon became a reference in the Netherlands and Belgium. In 2012, the Powder Guides Association was founded by Martijn Schell and François Lombard for the ever-growing winter program.
It is based on the same core and ideas as Martijn Schell Ski & Mountaineering and consists a team of 7 IFMGA certified mountain guides. All together, this team gathers a lot of experience. Not only will they teach you with no lost of enthusiasm the basics of freeriding or ski touring, and help you improve your skills very fast, but they are also involved in professional training. And this last point makes them up to date on every latest trick in the profession.
