Welcome to Mountain Guide Terry Ralphs

A warm welcome to my website.

I am a British mountain guide living in Leysin Switzerland offering alpine mountaineering courses and private guiding on the high alpine summits.
Having over 30 years experience in this industry, I am as motivated and active as when I first started.
Whether you would like to gain more confidence to approach the alpine mountains independently or have ambitions to climb peaks such as the Eiger, Matterhorn, Mont Blanc or any 4000m or lower peak in the Alps please get in touch.
I also offer rock climbing and via ferrata courses.
In the winter I deliver ice climbing courses and run a varied off piste and ski touring program.
I hope that you can find the time to explore my website and please let me know if you have any questions or are interested in time in the mountains with me.

Summer Alpine Season.

The summer season is almost upon us. Most alpine huts will be opening on the weekend 20th June. They will have reduced capacity for added protection against CV-19, so there should also be a much more relaxing and spacious feel in the huts.
Hut availability may be a problem due to the reduced capacity so booking early is advisable.
If you are interested in a trip to the mountain please let me know. I have added a few suggestions under summer courses which will hopefully inspire you.
Please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions.
Wishing you a great summer.
Terry
