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.
