La Haute Route is a mythical ski touring course linking the two mountaineering European capitals, Chamonix in France and Zermatt in Switzerland.
I like to take my friends and customers there, and help them to discover the splendid massifs we cross.
We enjoy long, rewarding ski touring days, and sleep in famous mountain huts across the route. In my opinion, some of the highlights are the Chardonnet pass, the Fenêtre d’Arpette and the Dix lake. But the journey is filled with fantastic places.
Below you can find the detailed itinerary of the route I usually guide. Of course it is adjustable depending on the time you have and the places that you would like to visit. In addition, this Haute Route program is adaptable according to the participants level and the weather. We could anticipate for example a walking day if you prefer.
If you want more information about the preparation, I strongly recommend you to read this article – Get ready to ski tour Chamonix Zermatt – which I have contributed to.
I invite you to contact me if this adventure interests you. We will have the opportunity to speak about your level and your desires. I’d be happy to take you on La Haute Route!
