Description

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!
