Description

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.

Mountain Guide

Hi! I'm Renato, IFMGA guide from the Dolomites, and I work together with my colleagues Robert, Bruno, Patrick, Benedetta & Walter (German speaking). If I'm not available to guide you, one of them will take care of you.

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.

ayant subit un accident le premier jour (fracture côte et clavicule) nous n'avons pas eu l'occasion de l'ensemble du programme. la suite semblait alléchante. le premier jour était majoritairement sur piste et avec remonte-pente.

Patrick lead our group of 4 expertly through the Sella Ronda in the Dolomites. He had a great knowledge of the lifts and terrain, and matched our abilities with the available runs. Communicated the day prior to confirm booking which gave us great comfort. Would highly recommend.

We skied 3-days wth Mara Martini, from Bernard's team, and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! It was our first time in the Dolomites, and it was a great introduction to the area. Mara was able work with each of our group having different capabilities, and find the best areas for us to discover. Definitely look forward to skiing with Mara again! Thanks also to Explore Share platform and team, who enabled us to find the guide team for our holiday :)

Hi - unfortunately this trip did not really work out how we had envisaged it. Partly this was unavoidable due to the weather, avalanche risk and the snow conditions off piste being very poor. But we were very disappointed that having thought we were booking hut to hut trip where we would do lots of skiing in between, in reality we were just doing a trip where we separately (as in with a car ride across the ski village in between) hiked up to 2 different huts, stayed a night and then skied back down the way we had walked up. We appreciate that the conditions made things difficult but we felt that the guide Paolo could have been much more proactive in finding some patches of good snow, thinking about what a fun trip might be given the first plan was not possible. Rather than just defaulting to asking us what we wanted to do, and, as we did on Days 2 and 3, defaulting to skiing mainly on piste. On our 4th day, without Paolo, we managed to find some decent patches of snow to ski off piste in ... so they were there if he had made the effort to seek out and find them. Paolo was a nice guy and we appreciated his company, but we were maybe hoping for someone a bit more experienced and proactive who could ride with the challenges conditions threw at him still find interesting touring and off-pisteing to do. Just going up to a hut and back down twice is not what we had wanted/ felt we paid for. The Explore-Share service of finding the guide was fine, but the outcome did not live up to what we hoped. Thanks. Gordon 07867 801245

Paolo was an incredible guide. He was patient and knowledgeable and took us on some great terrain. I would highly recommend him to anyone interested in free riding in the dolomites!
