Description

Join me all the way from the Italian village of Alpe Devero to the mountain village of Andermatt in Switzerland. Thanks to this region’s perfect weather, spectacular slopes and easy to cross mountain passes, this 7-day ski traverse will be the ultimate challenge for off piste skiers!

Our meeting point will be at the Domodossola Station in the Piedmont region, in northwestern Italy. From there, we’ll transfer by car to Alpe Devero which will be the starting point of our traverse.  Devero is located in the far north of Piedmont and in winter, this region turns into a spectacular white paradise. Thanks to its location and its magical scenery, this village’s surroundings will be the ideal playground for lovers of skiing and ski mountaineering.

We’ll discover these mountain’s treasures like the Formazza Valley, the Bedretto Valley  and its many surrounding summits as we move from hut to hut in search of the best powder snow! Some of the peaks we might ascend are Punta d’Arbola (3,235 m) and Punta Elgio (2,837 m). However, please keep in mind that  our itinerary and destinations may vary according to the weather and snow conditions. For a more detailed description of the trip, take a look at the itinerary below!

In order to join me on this 7-day ski traverse, all participants must be experienced and strong skiers and must have a great physical condition.

About the guide

The desire to turn my passion for the mountains into my profession led me train as a professional mountain guide. I became a certified IFMGA guide in 2005 and have spent more than 200 days per year on the mountains ever since.

Although I usually work in the Mont Blanc area, Monterosa, the Lepontine Alps and the Dolomites, I'm always eager to explore more remote places and have truly unique experiences. I have extensive experience in the Lofoten Islands, in Norway, as well.

To me, reaching the summit is important but not as much as enjoying the journey and sharing some unforgettable moments. The ascent usually provides the chance to enjoy the views, while a night in a bivouac is always a good opportunity to look at the stars and share a good talk.

I speak English, French and Italian, of course.
