Description

Come with me on this Grand Paradiso (4061 m) splitboarding guided week and experience splitboarding at its best as we go from hut to hut in the beautiful Italian Alps!

Located between the Aosta Valley and the Piedmont region, the Gran Paradiso offers a challenging but beautiful ascent. This mountain is famous for being one of the most accessible of the 4000 meter Alpine peaks.

Our starting point will be at Chamonix, France where we’ll check our equipment and make sure everything’s in order. Then, on the next day,  we’ll transfer to Italy and start this hut to hut climbing and splitboarding traverse.

Our main goal will be to conquer the amazing Gran Paradiso (4061 m). Every day, we’ll start exploring early in the morning. And every afternoon, we’ll return to the cozy and comfortable mountain huts we’ll find along this journey.

This splitboarding week is a great opportunity to gain some high altitude experience. Furthermore, skiers and splitboarders may find this program a great introduction to start understanding the Alps weather and snow conditions. For a more detailed description of the trip, take a look at the itinerary below!

This trip is suitable for intermediate skiers and splitboarders. If you are ready to take on this adventure in the Italian Alps, request to book your place and get ready for an experience you’ll never forget!
