Are you looking for a nice ski touring program in a classic spot? Then don’t miss the chance to take the Haute Route from Chamonix to Zermatt and enjoy skiing in one of the best destinations in the Alps. Follow me on this tour!

On this 7-day program, I would like to invite you to cross the iconic Haute Route refuges, from France to Switzerland across the Pennine Alps. Some of the refuges we’ll visit are the Albert Premiere Hut, Champex-Lac and Vignettes Hut. Furthermore, on the final section of the trip, we’ll have the pleasure to reach the foot of the Matterhorn, in Zermatt, with our skis on. The trail will also lead us across Col Superior du Tour and Col des Ecandies. For a detailed description of each day’s activities, take a look at the bottom of the page.

Although this tour is not too demanding, consider that it requires a very good physical condition as well as ski touring and off-piste skiing experience. We’ll spend 6-7 hours on the activity and face an elevation gain of 800 to 1200 meters per day.

So does this ski touring adventure sound exciting to you? Then get in touch with me by sending the request to book your place. It will be a pleasure for me to be your guide!

I also lead a mountaineering program to Mont Blanc from Refuge Gonella. Check it out!

About the Guide


As a Mountain Guide I do my passion for the mountains all year round. I attend and know the most prestigious places in the Alps, Chamonix, Courmayeur, Cervinia, La Grave, Verbier, Zermatt etc. and I work with some of the leading tour companies in Italy, France and Switzerland.

Passionate about skiing, in winter, I am constantly looking for "dust" and new lines where I can then drive my clients, while in summer I prefer classic mountain climbing in high mountains and rock climbing.

I spend most of the summer season on the Mont Blanc massif, making alpinism a way of life. Every year I lead dozens of climbers on the highest European peak through the most diverse routes. Often I find myself choosing with my clients lesser-known, but no less spectacular, tops, which we face with due preparation and enthusiasm.

I practice ski mountaineering, a 360 ° mountain sport and a favorite winter activity, guiding my clients for the classic one-day climbs, but also for the multi-day hautes, such as the very famous Chamonix-Zermatt.

Since 1996 I have been a paragliding instructor with two-seater flying qualification (with passenger). To date, I have carried out, together with my clients, more than 1000 flights, which become part of the more than 3000 flight hours marked in curriculum.
