Grand Saint Bernard pass ski touring

Join one of the IFMGA-certified guides in the Peakshunter team on this ski touring trip in the Grand Saint Bernard for 3 days. Plan with them your ideal itinerary from all the proposed options!

Not specified

Alps

3 Days

Feb, Mar, Apr


Description

At the border between Switzerland and Italy, the Grand Saint Bernard pass is indeed an amazing location for ski touring. Join me in this 3-day trip and let's explore this wonderful setting.

I propose two different programs for you to decide. In fact, the place where we decide to spend the night can shape our trip. If you prefer to spend the nights in a village, we can make Saint Rhémy en Bosses our base. Then each day we will make a different ascent. For example, we can go to the Serena pass, the Grand Saint Bernard pass, Mount Fourchon, Costa Serena, Costa Corleans, Mount Flassin, and there are even more options!

Another option is to spend a night in the famous Grand Saint Bernard hospice. Check out the detailed program below.

I find this trip very special because:
– It's a very isolated itinerary,
– There are always great snow conditions,
– It's perfect for people who enjoy adventures away from the crowds, since it's not touristic.

Did you find this program interesting? Then please contact me and let's set a date! Another, quite peculiar, ski touring trip that I really like is in Mount Etna, check it out!

Founded in 2013 by Elis and Silvia, PEAKSHUNTER Mountain Guides is a team of IFMGA-certified Mountain Professionals and outdoor activities experts, based in the town of Aosta, not far from Courmayeur-Chamonix, on the Italian side of the Mont Blanc massif.

Mont Blanc, Matterhorn, Dufourspitze, Pyramide Vincent and Regina Margherita Hut, Gran Paradiso, Breithorn, Lyskamm, Castor and Pollux are only a few of several 4000 Alps summits you can climb with us: most of our team of Guides were born and grew up close to these mountains and they have explored the ascent routes several times during different seasons, with skis or crampons!

- We love our work: we plan all our trips with great commitment and deep respect for the Alpine environment, for its inhabitants, and its territories. Including local traditions in different valleys and Alpine areas.

- We love Mountain, Nature, and Outdoor activities, that we like to share with people from all around the world. We are enthusiastic to meet like-minded adventurers and share new experiences and memorable emotions with the support of our Mountain Guides.

- Safety and Risk Management are essential for us, as elements of fundamental importance during every single trip we plan and carry out with our customers: for this reason, we offer introductory courses to the different alpine disciplines (Mountaineering, Rock climbing, Ice climbing, Ski mountaineering, Freeride, Rescue Crevasse, and Avalanche) to convey awareness and responsibility to our customers.

- We offer solid Experience, with several years organizing outdoor disciplines around mountain and wild areas, in many different countries of Italy and Europe, for individuals or groups, including 7-day customer support for booking, logistics, and personal assistance for planning and reservations.

I had really great days on my Splitboard trip with Elis and Ettore. Very good guiding- always open for the needs and wishes of their guests. We successfully did several peaks and the descends were premium!❄️😎🤩

We were very happy about everything. The only thing a bit annoying was the fact that the price wasn't clear (or maybe I should have written all termes and conditions?) I have no problem with the price in itself, I just would have loved to know it clearly so that I could explain it to the team in advance. It did spoiled a bit my holidays to think about money, would have preferred to think about it only before or after...Thanks Arthur
