    This 7-day Gran Paradiso ski mountaineering tour will take you skiing to several peaks in the southern Alps!

    Gran Paradiso is a mountain massif located between the Aosta Valley and the Piedmont region, in the northwest of Italy. It’s very close to the French border and to Mont Blanc. And it’s the only mountain entirely on Italian territory higher than 4000 m.

    I’ll take you to this journey starting at Chamonix, France, where we’ll meet and check your equipment to make sure everything’s in order. The next day we’ll cross the tunnel to Italy and start this hut to hut climbing and skiing traverse. Our main goal will be to summit Mount Gran Paradiso (4061 m).

    We’ll start early every morning to avoid avalanch risks. This will also allow us to arrive early at the different mountain huts, so we’ll have time to enjoy the nice spring sun and the amazing scenery.

    This is the perfect introductory tour to start understanding the Alps weather and snow conditions. And a great opportunity to gain some high altitude experience.

    And most of all this 7-day Gran Paradiso ski mountaineering tour is a great way to discover this beautiful mountain. Send me a request now and we’ll start organizing your trip!
