Have you always dreamed of crossing the Alps via the Haute Route? This classic ski tour from Chamonix to Zermatt is the perfect chance to make your dreams come true!

This is a strenuous ski tour reserved for those in very good physical condition. The Haute Route passes below the summits of 10 of the highest peaks in the Alps. The highest pass is at more than 2900 meters.

From Chamonix in France to Zermatt in Switzerland, the high route has become one of the most renowned itineraries in the world among mountaineers and skiers. You’ll spend a week in a world of glaciers and snowy peaks, sleeping in tents or mountain huts and enjoying the company of fellow travelers.

Once you reach Zermatt, you’ll realize why some say it is the most beautiful alpine village in the world. Enjoy some quiet time here as well as there are no cars on its streets. Nestled at the foot of the iconic Matterhorn, Zermatt is unforgettable!

This ski tour takes 6 days to complete (plus 2 travel days) and can be organised during April and May. I can take from 1-6 participants so bring some friends along! Do bear in mind, however, that the Haute Route is for expert skiers only.

Want to check out some less demanding programs? Then don’t miss out on my guided ski tours in Dolomiti SuperSki for skiers of all levels.

About the Guide

 
 

I was born in 1961, I live in Campitello di Fassa, in the Dolomites, together with my family. I have two sons, one is a mountain guide, the other is a ski instructor. I am a certified mountain guide since 1982, an instructor of guides, alpine ski instructor and a Federal coach for ISEF.

Being in the mountains has always been my passion, guiding people, teaching them climbing, mountaineering... during the various seasons of the year. I very much enjoy drawing nice curves in fresh powder snow and discover the charm of the frozen waterfalls.

My curriculum and professional mountaineering is made of many ascents and some openings of routes in the Dolomites and the Alps. I climbed in Yosemite Valley (California), Ben Nevis (Scotland) and Norway, Greece, Spain and Sardinia. I did also several high altitude climbs like Mt Denali (Alaska), Ama Dablam (6828m), Cho Oyu (8201m), Manaslu (8163m), Shivling in India (6545m), Cotopaxi and Chimborazo in Ecuador (5897m and 6310m), Patagonia (Argentina).

Feel free to get in touch with me if you are coming in the Dolomites for skiing (alpine, freeride and ski touring), rock climbing, sport climbing and multi pitch climbing. It will be my pleasure to guide you here and let you discover my secret spots.
