The Haute Route Ski Tour or more commonly known as Chamonix – Zermatt is by far the most popular and prized ski destination in the Alps. Each year many skiers set out to attempt to complete this coveted traverse, yet not all will succeed in reaching the final destination of Zermatt. Whilst there are many ways to get from point A to point B, I have tried to eliminate as many variables as possible by putting together two different tours to help you sucessfully reach your goal.
The first is the ultra classic by way of the Grand Combin – which sees fewer skiers than the following Verbier version and is certaily harder and longer. It’s a purist route and should only be considered by those with some solid ski montaineering background.
The second is via Verbier and although it is certainly more popluar the later version, it also offers several occasions to seek alternate routes and bonus summits along the way. Additionally I have “spruced” it up even further. Read on for the complete details.
