6 Days

Apr, May




Join me in one of the most renown ski traverses in the world. An incredible alpine tour from Chamonix to Zermatt.

I propose a 6-day program during which we will enjoy an amazing ski traverse from Chamonix, in France, to Zermatt, home of the Matterhorn summit in Switzerland.

This trip travels through incredible alpine valleys, passes and glaciers, crossing the most spectacular mountain terrain in the world. Every year, thousands of skiers visit Europe to do this famous ski touring traverse.

During our journey, we will spend nights at high mountain huts situated in different villages that we will traverse. It's indeed a great opportunity to get in touch with the local culture and people from all over the world.

Some of the highlights of the mythical Haute Route, from Chamonix to Zermatt, are the following:
– The best ski touring spots through the Alps, from Mt Blanc to Matterhorn.
– Incredible and stunning views every day.
– Accommodation in real high mountain huts.

This program is for competent skiers, with prior ski touring experience in all snow conditions. Additionally, it is important to be in very good physical shape. Of course, we have to always keep in mind that the program will depend on the weather and snow conditions.

A 6-day alpine tour along the most beautiful landscapes in a unique natural setting full of stories and culture. It's a real ski traverse in the Alps.

Do you want to live a different and unique experience? Here it is! Don't hesitate in getting in touch with me if you are tempted by this amazing program. It will be my great pleasure to share such an adventure with you and help you discover such beautiful places. And for a different ski touring program, have a look at this one at the Névache Valley.

Jean agreed quickly to do the trip, but then for two weeks did not communicate whatsoever. That was disappointing. After that time, he cancelled the trip. The people at explore-share were very helpful in finding me a replacement guide by the name of Elsa Salmon. She was superb on every level. Kudos to the explore-share team and Elsa for making this great trip happen.
