More and more female High Mountain Guides in Chamonix

 
 

According to Radio Mont-Blanc, the profession of High Mountain Guide is feminising. Among the fifty graduates of the 2017 promotion, six are women. A record!

For François Marsigny, manager of the mountaineering department at the ENSA school (National School of Ski and Alpinism in Chamonix) is proof that the women evolved in their risk approach.

"Women give to the profession a different view of things, probably they bring a different risk than that of men, so it brings a very different light" he added.

Martine Rolland is the first woman who obtained the Mountain Guide certificate in 1983.

Today, it is no longer uncommon to meet women with their customers at the end of the rope. There are about thirty in France, for 1800 professionals.

François Marsigny returns to this subject by saying that "to ensure that this feminization continues, awareness actions shall be made."
