Certified AMGA and IFMGA Guided Backcountry Ski Trips in the European Alps: France, Switzerland and Italy.
Join us in the Spring for a Guided European backcountry ski trip across the ‘Roof of The Alps’, along the famous Chamonix to Zermatt Haute Route.
This sought after European backcountry ski trip, traverses across the French and Swiss Alps for 8-days, skiing amidst the glaciers and high mountains of the European Alps, while staying in the comfort and convenience of high mountain guardianed huts along the way.
Begin in the alpine village of Chamonix, France, at the base of Europe’s highest peak Mont Blanc, and ski tour along this ‘high-mountain route’, eventually finishing by skiing down the slopes of Zermatt resort below the mighty walls of the famous Matterhorn.
All along the way, ski through some of The Alps most scenic glaciated mountainous terrain, as we move from cozy mountain refuge to cozy mountain refuge along the way. We will spend the days touring through the alpine, along glaciers, amidst towering peaks, and enjoying ski descents down sweeping glaciers and through steep mountain valleys, experiencing a change in culture and scenery as we work away from the bustling alpine village streets and cafes of Chamonix France, to the large scale resort of Verbier, Switzerland, and finally down into the carless streets and small countryside homes below the mighty Matterhorn of Zermatt, Switzerland. And along the way, enjoy true European mountain hospitality by staying in guardianed huts and mountain refuges, enjoying large home cooked meals, sipping cold beers or glasses of wine on the stone terraces, and socializing with other excited, enthusiastic, and enjoyable ski tourers from all over the globe !
Participants on the Haute Route Ski Tour should be advanced intermediate or stronger skiers, and have a high level of cardio vascular fitness. The days are not super long, typically 6-7 hours, but the high mountain environment can be taxing and the weather can be challenging, making for potentially more difficult and longer days then planned.
Join us this Spring to take in the fantastic skiing, unrivaled European culture, and breathtaking mountain scenery, in a hut-to-hut ski trip not to be missed!!!
