Join me for a 5-day ski tour of the Haute Route in reverse, putting bit of a twist on this storied and iconic traverse through the Alps!

Instead of Chamonix, we begin in Zermatt, and over the course of five days we will make our way along the 180 kilometers of one of the oldest ski touring routes in Europe, through the sublimely picturesque Swiss and French Alps.

En route to our destination we will see some of the most iconic peaks in the whole mountain range, including the Matterhorn and Mont Blanc. There will be plenty else to marvel at as we pass through picturesque valleys and stay in remote mountain huts with the brilliant night sky above us.

Each day we will ski for about four to seven hours, covering quite a bit of ground along the way. For this reason we recommend some prior skiing experience and a relatively good level of physical fitness.

So what are you waiting for? Book now for this unforgettable five-day ski tour along a classic route through the sublimely scenic Swiss and French Alps!
