Come and experience a 6 day freeride skiing tour of Cervinia and Zermatt in the Alps of Italy and Switzerland with one of the certified guides from the Azimut Montagne team.
Jan, Feb, Mar, Apr
Cervinia, Italy and Zermatt, Switzerland offer some of the best, most beautiful and exciting descents in the Alps. And on this 6-day expedition, you will get to visit, explore and enjoy some of the best spots in those areas.
Our trip will begin in one of several different predetermined places. From there, we will go through an important equipment check before hitting the slopes of Valtournenche. This area will provide you with some great and relatively unknown slopes that will take you right into the area’s beautiful forest.
Over the course of the rest of the days on this trip, you will get to visit some truly amazing skiing spots. Those spots include Chamois freeride routes, slopes under the Testa Griggia in Cervinia, descents on the Theodule glacier, the Cresta Di Furggen and the Schwarzgletcher. As a result of the varied locations, you can be assured that every day will open up a unique and thrilling ski touring experience. Furthermore, you will get to admire some of the most amazing peaks in the Alps during this trip. Some of those peaks include Breithorn (4,164m), Pollux (4,092m) and the legendary Matterhorn (4,478m).
In order to participate on this trip, you should be an experienced skier. And because we will be ski touring all day, every day on this trip, you should also be in good physical condition.
Not one, but two amazing areas in the Alps await you on this 6-day ski touring adventure. So, if you want to join me on this trip in Cervinia and Zermatt, please send a request. I have no doubt you’ll have an amazing time.
I also offer a 4 day glacier trekking expedition in the Vallee Blanche.

Thx to Pierre for guiding us these days, everything was excellent. We were going to nice powder places even with difficult snow conditions. I didn’t have to think of anything, just followed the guide and enjoyed touring and skiing. Thx to Isabelle at le petite cerf for her hosting, food and excellent Organisation:)
Antoine at Azimut was an excellent guide. I had a great first climb because of him, will go again!
Had an absolutely fantastic experience on a 3 day trip of Gran Paradiso. Our guide Christophe Garrigues was incredibly knowledgeable and patient and ensured everyone in our group felt comfortable and confident when on the mountain or using new equipment. Definitely a trip to be repeated with Azimut and hopefully Christophe!
Awesome experience, knocked another item from my bucket list.

Quelques petits problèmes d'organisation , vite reglés par le guide très impliqué . Très bon choix pour l'Hotel. pour le programme, on devrait avoir un peu plus d'intensité lors de la préparation . le 1/2 jour de repos est le bienvenu
Well organised trip with excellent guides and admin support Highly recommend 😊

The Guide did not even know I'am on splitboard. Everyone else was on skis, I was the only one on board. Guide has no experience on board, so the daily trips was designed for skiers, not borders. I would like to know which company is responsible putting me in a ski group, Azimut or Explore-Share? If you don't know the difference between what is doable with skis and splitboards, you would not sell trips for splitboarders! In the only day I could enjoy somehow, I did very hard time to stay on my feet on icy steeps, because I should have had a crampon, but I did not have it, because the list of necessary equipment does not mention it. All the skiers had one. The guide anyway did what he could to help me, all the respect for Rafael. But the whole trip was a fuckup for me that way. I really want to know who is responsible!?
J'attends le remboursement mais dans l'ensemble tous étaient super. Les guides géniaux. Une bonne expérience.
Had a great trip. Unfortunately the guide was not fluent in English as written in the description. That is something that could lead to a very tricky situation if there would‘ve been a dangerous situation. The selection of the group by azimut was not the best as at least one person was physically not capable of doing this trip. However, the service by explore-share was great!
Merci beaucoup à Manu et Antoine, nos deux guides, pour cette excellente semaine. Ils ont été aux petits soins et très professionnels: s'assurant que chacun était en sécurité et profitait le plus possible de son séjour, de la montagne et de la bonne neige ;). L'hébergement, à l'hôtel Les Agneaux était aussi fantastique: nourriture faite maison, locale, chambres très confortables et propriétaire encore une fois aux petits soins. C'était top!
We really enjoyed the trip. As well the group, the skiing as the guide. A good hotel with enough facilities and very guest friendly. Thank you for your service and organization
What an incredible experience. Everything went superbly , the guides, organization and the team did a spectacular job.
I was disappointed. I was slower than the rest of the group reaching Tete Rousse, and the guide discouraged me from going to Gouter. I had a slight ankle sprain the day before which slowed my ascent. I recovered 95% the day after. My complaint: when I decided to go for a second guided attempt, at a slower pace, I received no help in securing a guide, or a reservation at Gouter. The online reservation showed fully booked both for Rousse and Gouter. But I know that there were lots of empty bunks at Rousse, and I suspect the same at Gouter. I received sympathy, but only as a formality. Initially I had sought a single dedicated guide, but I was encouraged to join a group. I did not get a choice.I should have known better, I knew my pace would be a bit slower, but I counted on your support and understanding. I got neither. I was on my own with no help.
