This is a chance for ski tour lovers to make a dream come true. Gilles, IFMGA certified mountain guide, takes you on the classic route of your choice in the Alps. Keep reading to check out his top picks!
Have you ever daydreamed about ski touring in one of the classic routes of the Alps? This is your chance! I invite you to join me on an epic ski tour adventure to make your dreams come true.
I can design different programs depending on whether you mostly enjoy descents or if you are rather a traverse enthusiast. Of course, your skiing level and the time you have available will also be determinant factors when designing the program. Besides, I will take into account if you prefer to sleep in unguarded refuges or enjoy comfortable stays in hut each night.
What do all these options have in common? In any case, we will go explore new horizons, and take the time to enjoy the mountain.
The classic of classics is the Haute Route from Chamonix to Zermatt. And we can definitely traverse it together! This route starts and ends in the two alpinism capitals. There are different possible versions for this traverse, depending on the group. It takes about 5 to 7 days .
I also love the Vanoise traverse. It is a beautiful loop, quite accessible, in the wild Vanoise massif.
The Silvretta is a perfect massif to try a first ski touring traverse. The routes are ample and the huts are comfortable.
Another option, the Hospice du Grand Saint Bernard, is a beautiful and short option. In 3 days, leaving each day from the same place, we can explore the area. Ideal for first timers.
The Tour de la Meije is a fantastic route that takes from 4 to 6 days. This option is reserved to alpinist skiers.
Finally, I also propose The 7 passes. It will be a wild traverse in the high mountain at the border between France and Switzerland.
