Description

Grab your crampons and dig in to a five-day Matterhorn program that includes training, acclimatization, and a trip to the summit! This guided mountaineering program is the perfect way to seamlessly move from snowy valley to notorious mountain top, beginning with instruction in Chamonix before taking on the Matterhorn from Zermatt!

The legendary peak of the Matterhorn needs no introduction. This 4,478-meter behemoth is one of the most sought-after mountains in the world, and has certainly cemented itself as a symbol of the mountaineering community. The pyramidal shape at the top of the rock is as evocative as it is difficult to conquer.

So let’s do it together! This program is designed to give you all of the necessary tools to safely and efficiently reach the top of the Matterhorn. I will be with you every step of the way to ensure you are in the best position for a successful ascent. By building up to our main objective, you will be able to successfully accomplish this high profile summit.

You should be in great physical shape for this program with ample mountaineering experience. The demanding aspects of this ascent require a high level of proficiency and preparation, physically and mentally speaking.

Beginning in Chamonix, we will focus on mountaineering fundamentals, such as crevasse rescue and technical climbing techniques. This will allow us time to acclimate to the high altitude while also honing the skills necessary to take on the Matterhorn. The Chamonix Valley is loaded with beautiful climbs that are astonishing, profound, and technically valuable.

By the fourth day, we will head to Zermatt for the trip to the summit, practically applying our previously mastered skills. The dedicated push to the top of Matterhorn may be challenging, but the work is well worth the reward. Sweeping views of the surrounding Swiss Alps, including views south into Italy, await us. After taking in the panoramas and the thrill of the climb, we will return from the peak with an unforgettable experience to add to your resume.

Book this exciting Matterhorn ascent with training and acclimatization NOW and enjoy five days of guided climbing that will take you from the picturesque Chamonix Valley to the top of an Alpine legend!

If you had your eyes on the tallest objective in the Alps, we can try a six-day ascent of Mont Blanc with training and acclimatization!

About the guide

guide profile img

I am the owner of Lotus Alpine Adventures and have a long career in the guiding industry. I started out working in Outdoor Education in Colorado, where I also received a degree in Outdoor Education from Ithaca College.

From 2007 to 2014, I owned and operated Crested Butte Mountain Guides. Throughout those years, I also worked through the AMGA training curriculum and eventually became the 95th American to obtain IFMGA certification, the most rigorous international certification available in the industry.

Throughout my career, I have worked for and built partnerships with many of the main mountain guiding agencies in the US and it is thanks to these partnerships that Lotus Alpine Adventures can now offer programs in very varied spots across the US, including: Crested Butte, Boulder and Eldorado Canyon in Colorado; Moab and Castle Valley in Utah; Red Rocks in Nevada; Valdez in Alaska; Jackson Hole in Wyoming; and the Cascades of Washington.

All of my experience and expertise ultimately results in a truly professional guiding service and a great trip experience for you and your group, regardless of your level or activity.

The world´s mountain ranges are not only our playground but also our office and our classroom. Let us guide you and share with you some truly unforgettable moments!
