Description

Monte Rosa is the second highest massif in the Alps and western Europe. Because of its large extension of powder snow terrain, it’s perfect for freeride adventures. Come with me and spend 4 days skiing down some of the best untracked slopes in Europe!

On the border between Switzerland and Italy, Monte Rosa is part of the Pennine Alps. On this freeride skiing tour we will explore three beautiful areas of the region: Breuil-Cervinia, Zermatt-Gornegratt-Sunnega, and Champoluc-Gressoney-Alagna.  We will ski down long powder slopes surrounded by impressive valleys, glaciers and ice-covered peaks.  Furthermore, a helicopter will help us to get away from the crowds to reach some steep and wide corridors of powder snow! You can find a detailed itinerary below.

So, if you are up for an unforgettable freeride skiing adventure, please contact me. I’ll be glad to be your guide on this 4-day trip in Monte Rosa!

I can also take you to Mont Blanc for another awesome skiing experience, check it out!

Mountain Guide

I am Reccardo Olliveri, class 1975, registered to the Alpine Guide College of Piemonte since 2002 and graduated in environment and territory engineering at the Turin technical college. I live at Turin, but I am resident in the Alps where I practice the mountaineering activity all through the year; I love the void and I play every time I can; on rock, ice, dry tooling and also skiing.

Its with great passion that I continue practicing the mountaineering activity and I dedicate myself to pass on to all those interested to know, the spirit and the ability to dedicate oneself close to the mountain in all its forms.

Riccardo was an exceptional guide. On this 4 day skiing trip with him, he taught me how to ski tour and took me to many incredible locations. He was happy and able to help me whenever I got to a difficult location on the mountain and ensured I was always comfortable with what I was doing. Additionally, he is quite a great photographer so I got many nice photos from the adventure. I would definitely recommend Riccardo and this trip for anyone who is interested in trying off-piste skiing or ski touring.

I did the 4 day off piste at Mont Blanc. Riccardo is a very patient,funny and professional guide. He definitely speaks all 3 languages fluently and is accessible to ask questions and plan your ski trip. His vast knowledge about the mountain and skiing are incredible.He is always on time and checks the weather the night before to determine the iternary for the next day. He is very organized and helpful too. He even came with me to get my ski gear. He will always give you suggestions on which mountain and will ask what you would like to do. Due to the bad weather, I got to ski La Flegere and Le Tour. The views were still incredible and we had fresh powder snow. I had a great time and learned alot from him. It was an incredible experience that I will never forget and would definitely recommend him.
