Description

If you love skiing, you can’t miss this opportunity to take one of the most popular routes in the Alps. Come with me on this classic program and enjoy skiing from Chamonix to Zermatt!

The Chamonix-Zermatt route is one of the most incredible trails in the Alps. It leads us through several stunning glaciers and allows us to contemplate spectacular landscapes. If you come with me on this exciting adventure, we’ll enjoy ski touring in the 3,000-meter peaks surrounding this area. Some of the beautiful natural spots that we’ll explore on this trip will be Lac de Champex, Lac des Dix and fantastic mountains such as Rosablanche (3,336 meters) and Pigne d’Arolla (3,796 meters). At the bottom of the page, you can take a look at a more detailed description of the itinerary.

Please, keep in mind that it’s very important to have background skiing experience as well as a very good level of fitness for this program. Of course, I will be there to help and guide you on the way. 

Do you think this would be an exciting adventure? Then don’t hesitate to send the request and book your place. I’m sure we’ll have a wonderful time!

I like climbing and mountaineering on the main mountainous groups in the Apennines and on the entire Alpine arc, including some early ascents and repetitions; climbing on ice falls; ski mountaineering activities on the mountainous groups of the Apennines, the Alpine arc and the Mediterranean area - ascent of the main peaks above 4000 m.- of all difficulties, with many years of experience in raid and steep skiing experiences; experience of extra-mountain mountaineering at Mount Kun, in the Indian Himalayas.

Intense mountain bike activity, including professional accompaniment, on the most beautiful paths in central Italy.
Competitive ski mountaineering activities in the last editions of the Mezzalama trophy, Adamello ski raid, and competitions of the Ski Alp circuit of the parks in central Italy
