Chamonix ski guide equipment for Mont Blanc, Vallee Blanche, off pist skiing and mountaineering

Equipment
Complete equipment lists so that nothing is forgotten. They should be modified according to the summit to allow for the lightest pack possible. Borrowing equipment: Arva, harness on request.
Renting equipment [ice axe, crampons, boots, skis] in Chamonix(*=rental is possible).
Some equipment is optional and can be lent by the Guide(optional =could be lend by the guide)
Ask for my advice and if possible buy the necessary equipment with me in Chamonix.
Beware of using new boots. Test them several days before and if they are rented take your time. These are the most important things to get right.
The rent or buy deal allows you to test the equipment and if you buy it later you don't pay for the rental.
