Description

I invite you to join me on a mythical Haute Route 4-day traverse in Switzerland. This great ski tour takes us from Verbier all the way to Zermatt, finishing our adventure at the foot of the impressive Matterhorn.

We will ski the most stunning mountains in the country, enjoying breathtaking views and spectacular descents in the heart of the glaciers of Valais. During this 4-day traverse we will stay in different and comfortable mountain huts. 

On the first day of the tour, starting from Verbier, we climb the Rosablanche (3336m) summit, spending the night at the Prafleuri Hut (2662m). On the second day we reach the Dix Hut (2928m), and from there we climb to the Luette summit (3548 m). We spend the night back at the Dix refuge.

On the third day, I will guide you to the Vignettes Hut (3160m). This mountain refuge lies at the foot of the Pigne d’Arolla (3796m), in the Pennine Alps. The Pigne d’Arolla summit offers one of the best views on the traverse, with spectacular panoramic vistas across the Alps. We enjoy a beautiful descent back to the Vignettes refuge.

Finally, on the last day of our tour, we leave the hut and enjoy one of the most amazing descents in the Alps, a unique run all the way down to the charming town of Zermatt. This run takes us through 3 passes, and we finish under the majestic Matterhorn (4478m).

So if you want to be part of this unique traverse in the Swiss Alps, just send me a request. Join me and experience the mythical Haute Route, discovering the stunning beauty of mountains and landscapes along the way.  If you have more time available, you can check my Haute Route 6-day traverse from Chamonix to Zermatt.

Mountain Guide

The Jura massif is an ideal place to learn and grow your experience in alpine techniques. I practice mountaineering, ski touring and ice climbing in the winter. I am also located very close to the Swiss and French alpine massifs.

First, I started as a ski rescuer. My passion for skiing and climbing helped me discover the classic routes in the mythical summits of the Alps. The first mountain courses I went on with friends as a guide - which I did with a lot of effort, doubts and perseverance - were much needed to build my experience. Still, they also gave me a lot of joy, and I was able to pursue them while laughing and creating beautiful moments shared.

My experience and terrain knowledge will allow you to move safely and enjoy your time, without a promise of the summit but of sharing a privileged and unique moment in the mountains.

Finally, I'm a fully certified IFMGA mountain guide.

While we were not able to take this itinerary due to inclement weather, our guide Benjamin still managed to take us through very interesting terrain perfectly suited to our abilities, and even adjusted his schedule to find some sunny days. My son and I had a great time and learned a lot. These will be memories for a life time. Thank you!
