Let Martin, an IFMGA- mountain guide, show you the amazing Saas Fee backcountry terrain with this 8-day splitboarding traverse.


8 Days

May - Jul




**This 8-day splitboarding traverse in Saas Fee is an excellent initiation program to start enjoying the Alpine touring world!**Known as “The Alps Pearl”, Saas Fee is a village located in the Saas Valley, in the southern Swiss Canton of Valais. During winter it becomes a big ski resort with amazing snow and great hospitality.So the help of its lifts is ideal to make a first contact with the splitboarding world. We’ll be surrounded by mountains over 4000 meters high, climbing up with our skins and enjoying amazing powder runs.During this program we’ll reach incredible summits like Allalinhorn (2027 m), Weissmies (4023 m) and Strahlhorn (4196 m). We’ll also spend some night in traditional mountain huts, where you’ll learn what it is to enjoy a quiet night in the Alps, with skies full of stars.And of course every day you’ll be able to ride slopes with pristine deep powder snow!

This 8-day splitboarding traverse in Saas Fee is a great way to discover these beautiful mountains while you enjoy amazing powder runs. Send me a request now and we’ll start organizing your trip!

What people are saying about Martin



We had the best time ever, what a stunning place Silvretta is, I'm in love! Martin was utterly brilliant, relaxed but professional - keeping us safe at all times. We will definitely return, so many mountain's to climb, glaciers to ski and huts to drink beer in! Thank you all so very much. Love to all xx



Although weather prevented 100% completion, Martin was great and had a couple of great alternatives. We had a great trip!



Martin provided us with a challenging weekend that stretched and developed our skiing a lot. He was very responsive to our feedback tailoring the programme as we went. Would absolutely book him again.


Impresionante Martin....te hace alcanzar lo inalcanzable, con una sensación de seguridad increible. Un gran profesional



Martin was incredible! From the pre trip preparations to managing all logistics while there - he made sure I had everything I needed, taught me alot, and importantly kept me safe! He truly provided a first class adventure.
