Highlights

 
     

    Located between Italy and Switzerland, the Monte Rosa area offers tons of 4000-meter summits, ideal for adventurous in reach of big goals. With the most beautiful views, this trip combines skiing, splitboarding and ice climbing. Come with me to explore Italy at 4.000 meters above sea level!

    There are many fascinating “4-thousanders” around the Monte Rosa massif. The list includes:

    • Ludwigshöhe (4.341m), 
    • Balmenhorn (4.167m), 
    • Pyramid Vincent (4.215m), 
    • Schwarzhorn (4.321m), 
    • Parrotspitze (or the Parrot Peak, at 4.432m),
    • Dofourspitze (also known as the Dofour Peak, the highest summit in the area at 4.634 meters)
    • Signalkuppe (4.554m).

    Most of these mountains are very close to each other which means that, depending on the fitness level of the group, we can conquer and ski more than one in a day!

    This four-day trip will start in Gressoney, from where we will climb to the comfortable Mantova Refuge at 3.498 meters, where we’ll spend the first night. On the second day, we’ll climb to the Gnifetti Hut (3.647m) and ascend to one or more 4-thousanders of your choice. The third day, we can add one or more peaks over 4000 meters to your list and sleep at the cozy Gnifetti Hut. Finally, we will spend the last day ski-touring around this amazing area.

    This trip is recommended for advanced skiers with previous experience in the use of ice-ax and crampons. We will be ascending close to 1.400 meters per day, hence, it is required to have a good physical condition.

    If you are excited to collect some of these “4-thousanders” and ski down the best slopes of the Italian Alps, send your request to book this trip. I would love to be your guide!

    About the Guide

     
     

    IFMGA/UIAGM Guide from Sesto, Italy

    For almost 150 years mountain guides from Sesto/Sexten have been taking enthusiastic people on the mountains. Their long-time tradition has seen famous alpinists and legendary first ascents.

    We, the new generation of the Alpinschule Sexten – Drei Zinnen, also turned our big passion into our job. The fascination of the mountains urges us all year round onto the local Dolomites and around the globe. With our professional support your time spent on the mountains doubtlessly turns into an unforgettable experience.

    I work together with a group of alpine IFMGA guides: Christian, Daniel, Hannes, Joe, Robert, Helmut and Felix. If I'm not available for your request, one of them will guide you!

    Our trip with Herbert was fabulous! He was very accommodating, picking us up from our hotel and then dropping us off at the train station. The via ferrata itself was great, we had a blast. Herbert guided us well through the tougher sections. I felt safe and confident the entire time. We would absolutely book Herbert again, and I was very happy with explore-share. Thanks!
