Description

This 6-day Piz Bernina ski touring program will strike you as one of the most beautiful adventures of your life!

Let me take you deep into Alps. This 7-day traverse crosses the most eastern side of the Alps. We’ll ascend the most emblematic peaks in this region: Piz Palü (3900 m) and Piz Bernina (4048 m).

During the journey, you’ll see spectacular glaciers with huge drops and unique scenery. And we’ll have the pleasure of climbing Piz Bernina, the highest mountain of the eastern Alps.

Because of these big drops and some highly technical parts of the route, this trip is aimed at skiers with previous experience in alpine traverses. Depending on your wishes, we can make some changes to the itinerary. But with this proposal you’ll get to visit the most spectacular and emblematic areas of the eastern Alps.

So please contact me to make this Piz Bernina ski touring program happen. And please specify the number of people in your group and any other request that you may have, so I can make the proper arrangements in advance.

You can also check out some of my other programs, including my 6-day Chamonix freeride skiing program and my 4-day Northern Carros de Foc ski touring program.

We'll stay in a Hotel the first night in Pontresina, and then in mountain huts along the ski route.
