The Monte Rosa is a mountain massif on the eastern side of the Pennine Alps, between Italy and Switzerland. It’s home to the second highest peak in the Alps, Dufourspitze (4,634 m), and features extensive terrain for challenging skiing adventures.

On this classic hut-to-hut ski mountaineering tour, we will explore the mountains of Monte Rosa and experience some stunning powder descents. After meeting in Champoluc, in the Aosta Valley, the adventure starts. We will climb and ski in amazing spots such as Colle del Turlo, Monte Moro and Saas Fee, and spend the nights in charming mountain huts.
