Porta Nera is an amazing ski descent in the heart of Monte Rosa massif. Join me and let’s spend an unforgettable freeride skiing day in Cervinia!

Also called Schwarztor, the Porta Nera (Italian for “Black Gate”) is a 3,731 m col located between the long ridge of the Breithorn and the Pollux peak. This route is comparable to the mythical Vallèe Blanche, except it’s less crowded!

After taking the Piccolo Cervino lift (Klein Matterhorn), we will face an easy and fun traverse below the Breithorn walls, towards the Porta Nera. Once there, the awesome descent begins!

We will ski on high-quality powder crossing a unique scenery: the glaciers of Monte Rosa and the Grenzgletscher (one of the longest glaciers in Europe), among other beautiful spots! At the end of the adventure, we will return to Cervinia with the Swiss cableway.

Keep in mind that this tour requires powder skiing experience and the usage of mountaineering equipment.

So, if you want to ski on the stunning Porta Nera area, please contact me. Let me guide you through this incredible descent surrounded by a breathtaking landscape!

And if you are looking for a longer skiing trip, take a look at my 4-day Freeride Skiing Tour in Monte Rosa.

About the guide

guide profile img

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.
