Chamonix-Zermatt Haute Route Ski Tour

Due to bad weather conditions, we could not do the Haute Route. Instead, the guide proposed an alternative route in Gran Paradiso

Chamonix-Zermatt Haute Route Ski Tour

Amazing trip, thoroughly enjoyed myself. Unfortunately, the Haute Route was cancelled due to incline weather, a safe decision by the guides, but they were able to create a new tour on the fly which was still spectacular. The Guides were very friendly and helpful, were able to pick me up from town as i didn't have a car, and transport me to the starting location. Both Elis and Claudio were very hospitable, knowledgable and friendly. Highly recommend PeakHunters for any guided needs!

Haute Route, Alps, 6 Day Guided Splitboarding Tour

My fiancé and I were new to ski touring and requested our guide to assist us in completing the historical haute route. 5 nights and 6 days. Renato became not just our guide but our friend during the trip. We faced unexpected challenges from Mother Nature and Renato protected us. He patiently taught me how to ski tour and maneuver the mountain even though I should have known already. His stories and charming personality made the trip so much more enjoyable. His knowledge of the terrain and our skill limitations allowed him to guide us safely to our destination. We hope to hire him in the future for more fun adventures. We highly recommend him for your guiding needs.

Chamonix-Zermatt Haute Route Ski Tour

Claudio is an excellent guide who takes safety seriously. He is extremely knowledgeable and was able to judge our capabilities and pace our trips perfectly. We hired Claudio for a small group trip on two occasions in 2018 and 2019 and will go with him again in 2021 if we can. Our attempts at the Haute Route both failed after 4-5 days due to bad weather, but sooner or later we will complete it!

Freeride and Backcountry skiing in Valais (private)

2 jours fantastiques, avec un guide qui ressent bien jusqu'ou il peut pousser ses clients, qui explique beaucoup sur les techniques et la lecture du terrain (un grand plus!), et qui de plus est très sympa. A refaire chaque année! Bruno, Renaud et Mathieu

I often ski with Stephane. He is a very nice guide with a very good knowledge about security. He is always looking for the best spots which will combine excellent snow and safe conditions. He is very communicative and friendly.

Ski touring in Valais, Haute Route

J'ai la chance de skier chaque année avec Steph depuis qu'il est guide. Il trouve toujours d'excellents plans ski et rando en valais ou ailleurs. Steph est ultra professionnel et le fait qu'il soit sauveteur est certainement un plus!

More info about Splitboarding in Zermatt:

Zermatt has long been a haven for winter sports enthusiasts and this is no exception in the case of splitboarders. The town is perfectly situated for any number of adventures that involve skinning up mountain peaks before combining the board and careening back down on a snowboard. Away from the aforementioned spots, another popular option is to head on a two-day tour of the Breithorn and Pora Nera. The trip involves only minor mountaineering know-how, a lot of great views and some incredible descents along the way. Though it may be a bit farther afield, the Monte Rosa massif is another popular destination for splitboarders based in Zermatt. Some opt to head up to the top of the peak and enjoy the thrilling ride back down. Others circumnavigate the peak, enjoying exciting runs at various parts and taking in the massif from all angles
