Gran Paradiso 3-day Ski mountaineering ascent

Gran Paradiso 3-day Ski mountaineering ascent | undefined

Ascend to the stunning Gran Paradiso, Italy and ski all the way down on this exciting 3-day trip with Tal, an IFMGA-certified mountain guide.



3 Days


Very high



* Explore Italy's highest "pure" mountain (not shared with another country).

* Dare your skiing skills on this incredible mountain.

* Enjoy the views of the stunning Italian Alps.


Follow me to the 4,060 meters summit of the impressive Gran Paradiso in Italy and ski all the way down on an unforgettable 3-day weekend adventure!

To begin our trip, we’ll meet in Argentiere and review the equipment. The following day, we’ll drive to Valsavarenche, via the Mont Blanc tunnel, and ascend to the Rifugio Chabod (2,710 m). Depending on the time of our arrival, we might do a schooling session on crampons and ice axe usage. On our last day, we’ll climb to the summit of the glacier, enjoy the breathtaking views from above and ski all the way down to the village. This is my proposed itinerary, but it may change depending on weather and safety conditions and participants’ abilities.

In order to take part of this trip keep in mind that you need to be an excellent skier with a very good fitness level. Previous mountaineering experience on ice and snow is also necessary.

If you would like to stay longer, we can also extend this trip to last between 4 to 6 days. Additionally, this program is also available as a private tour between the months of March and June, just let me know in your comments when you book the trip.

Mountain Guide

I am in the mountains all year-round, either guiding a trip or exploring on my own. Mountain guiding is not only my profession and passion but also my inner calling. I am a qualified IFMGA mountain and ski guide.

In 2012, I established my mountaineering school "Mountains" with the motto: Quality guiding on snow, rock and ice. You can count on a low client to guide ratio, reliable gear and high quality programs led by our talented team of guides. We are not adrenaline junkies - we put safety first and strive to meet and exceed all of our clients' needs.

We take great pride in having more than 30% returning clients and would be thrilled to welcome you to our "Mountains" family during your next rock, snow or ice adventure!

What people are saying about Tal



The course was intensive and fun! Tal is an incredible teacher and has a very vast knowledge which he shared with the group. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a short adventure in an incredible location.



Great trip that I'll remember forever, Tal did a great job of managing the logistics of a puzzle with many moving pieces! Both leading guides Jeff and Andi were first class and made the trip. Overall, top notch I would be happy to recommend!



There were several hiccoughs with Explore-share dates in the beginning. But, they got resolved quickly with responsive staff. It was a bit confusing at first because different guides would accept the offer and then fall away. So the early process through ES was a bit confusing. With multiple different emails and multiple different proposed guides that seemed to disappear as quickly as they popped up. This is why ES is rated 4 stars. ES is a good idea but just needs to fine tuned. ES offers a great way to get access to guides when you have few contacts. I think it is a good idea and has a future. The staff were fabulous though at reassuring and updating me. Once the booking was confirmed with Tal Niv we had very good communication over a period of a few months. Tal was organised and in touch frequently. There was a mis-communication in the trip dates (human error) but Tal quickly resolved it and managed to secure us Julian Resch who did an excellent job guiding us on an acclimatisation hike up the east ridge of Weissmies. Julian was easy comfortable company and was very professional. He was patient, encouraging and kind. I would recommend Tal and Julian for anyone seeking an adventure. Good luck ES - we will use you again in the future.



An awesome adventure provided by Tal's company. All requirements were met and schedule was adjusted for the changing weather conditions. It was one of the best guided tours I've experienced so far!
