Dolomite Mountains

7 Days

Description

The Haute Route is a very popular ski touring destination that connects Chamonix, France, and Zermatt, Switzerland. Join me for an unforgettable 7-day ski touring experience!

This program is a hut-to-hut ski touring trip around the most amazing glaciers of the Western Alps. It starts in the Mont Blanc massif and ends in Zermatt, at the foot of the Matterhorn peak.

First skied in 1903, the Haute Route is part of ski mountaineering history and remains one of the most popular ski touring outings in the world. Not only is it a mountaineering classic, but it also has breathtaking scenery and top-quality snow. I normally follow the classic route via Verbier, with some changes. You can check the itinerary below.

You need a good level of ski touring and fitness for this trip . The daily vertical gain is around 900m (2,700ft). But trust me: you will be rewarded with excellent skiing and awesome views!

So, if you are up for this unique 7-day Haute Route ski tour, please contact me! I’ll be glad to guide you through a once-in-a-lifetime adventure!

Mountain Guide

Mountain Guide UIAGM / IFMGA since 2011

It is said that passion is called so because it passes; then what I feel for the Mountain must have a different name, because it has been years since I have it, and it keeps on growing…

When I was a kid my parents took me to the mountains every summer, almost always in Val di Funes and in Val Pusteria. I liked to walk there. At the age of 14, I realized that all these mountains could be climbed… At 21, I attended my first climbing course with a mountain guide, it was as if I had opened my eyes from that moment! I used to climb in every spare moment and I read many books from Reinhold Messner, Hermann Buhl, Wakter Bonatti… my intention was to do like them.

My favorite field of action has always been the Dolomites, but I have also explored the Julian Alps, the Ortler and the Mont Blanc massif. And not just during the summer but also in winter. I then dedicate it to off-piste skiing in search of open spaces and the most picturesque canals, ski mountaineering, pristine environment, away from the tracks where everybody goes.

The desire to become a mountain guide is born in me during my first year, I admired the other people who had from this great passion make it their work.

If there is one thing that my personal history has taught me is that it's never too late to learn how to put the tips of the skis out of slopes, or to reach a top that has always been seen in dreams. And when I arrive at the destination, and I see in the eyes of those who followed me, the joy and happiness of the enterprise of discovery, I feel as if I were there myself for the first time, and that's the same place seen and reviewed reveals a new face and passion ... starts to burn.

Get in touch with me and let’s leave for great adventures together.
