Type of Trip
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!

What happens if I need to cancel the trip?
If you decide to cancel, you’ll get a 100% refund (minus fees) if the cancellation is notified up to 60 days before the start of the tour, a 75% refund (minus fees) if you cancel between 59 and 30 days before the start of the tour, and a 50% refund if you cancel between 29 and 21 days before the start of the tour. If you cancel less than 21 days before the first day of the tour, you won’t receive a refund. Take into account, however, that if accommodation, flights or transfers were included in the trip you booked, then a different policy may apply as the guide will be bound by the provider’s cancellation policy.
What happens if the guide cancels the trip because of bad weather/unsuitable conditions?
If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).
What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.
