Description

Eager to cross from France to Switzerland via the unique ‘Haute Route’ that connects Chamonix to Zermatt? It’s a quiet demanding but super rewarding experience, probably the best you’ll live in the Alps!

Join this 6-day splitboarding tour and get immersed in a fantastic white world, full of mountains and glaciers. And of course, the best powder runs to enjoy superb snowboarding descents!

This traverse starts in Chamonix, from where we’ll take a ski lift and go to Aiguille du Midi. Here we’ll have a training lesson on how to properly use the avalanche transceiver. After that, exciting days of splitbording await ahead, in Grands Montets, Coll de Chardonnet, and Plateau de Trient. Then, a traverse to Champez and a taxi ride to Verbier to spend a great night at Mont Fort mountain hut.

Finally we will ascent Pigne d’Arolla (3776 m) on day 5 and snowboard down to the Vignettes mountain hut so that we’ll enjoy a traverse the last day, in direction to Coll de Valpelline with a final long ski descent to Zermatt.

If you’re an intermediate splitboarder looking for some fun in the Chamonix-Zermatt Haute Route, send your request and make your reservation now!

I also lead programs aimed at ski tourers like this 5-day trip in Carros de Foc , Pyrenees.
