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.

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.
