The Gemmi Pass, on the Swiss Alps, is the perfect spot for ski touring beginners. Enjoy them in the company of Albrecht, an IFMGA certified mountain guide
Right between the superb Daubenhorn mountain (2942 m) and the magnificent Rinderhorn peak (3448 m), there is a paradise for ski touring enthusiasts. The Gemmi Pass, part of the Bernese Alps, offers incredible panoramas and is an ideal place for beginners in this discipline.
That is why I created this program, perfect for those with an enthusiasm for ski touring. The slopes are suitable for every level and taste. The plan is to meet in Leukerbad, Switzerland, and take the cable car to our accommodation in the Gemmi Pass. We could stay at Hotel Gemmi or hike for 1 ½ hours to the Lämmernhut. The following days, we will not do anything else besides ski touring. The distant views of the Dom, the Matterhorn and the Weisshorn make it even more impressive and worth trying.
If you need a rest, we can easily go to Leukerbad to relax for a day in its thermal spa resort (the largest in the Alps!).
Booking this trip is your chance to practice a new skill and discover an incredible part of the Alps.
If you already have experience or want a different challenge, check out this ski touring trip from west to east of the Alps.
You can choose either a hut from the Alpine hut or the Gemmi Hotel.
The area is perfect if you are looking forward to get into ski touring. You should be able to make 2 to 4 hours of hiking per day and you should be a solid skier to join. Lessons can be given during the day.
From Leukerbad we reach the Gemmi Pass by cablecar. We spend the night at Hotel Gemmi or hike 1 1/2 hours towards the Lämmernhut, where we can stay for 2 or more days.
Every day we will go on a ski trip. However, if you need to rest, is even possible to go to Leukerbad to relax.
I grew up in the mountains and have always loved being up there. I always knew I wanted to become a mountain guide and make a living out of this life-long passion. I've bee a certified mountain guide since 1989 and love showing my friends and clients what I think is the best in life.
I'm based in Frutigen, in the Bernese Oberland. During the summer, I mainly guide rock climbing here, in other parts of Switzerland (Wallis, Grisons...) and in some amazing spots, including southern France. During the winter and spring, I spend most of my time on my skis, in the Swiss Alps but also in Piemont, Austria, Arlberg...where I love to take my clients.

Had an awesome time! Got everything that I wanted to experience out of it. I will be seeing you next time I go to Switzerland, hopefully with other people to do another climb.
