Highlights

 
     

    I invite you to join me on this great 6-day ski tour around the Monte Rosa massif and the Matterhorn! Let’s enjoy 4750 meters uphill and more than 12000 meters of incredible descents. A real unique and infinite skiing adventure.

    This “Infinity” program is a great opportunity to ski among the incredible Monte Rosa and Matterhorn mountains, two of the Alps highlights.

    The Monte Rosa is a mountain massif located in the Italian regions of Piedmont and the Aosta Valley, near the Swiss canton of Valais. The Matterhorn is probably the most famous mountain of the Alps. Its pyramidal shape and its 4478 meters of altitude make it a must for any skier.

    My plan is to start in Cervinia and ski through great slopes moving along the border between Italy and Switzerland. I have prepared a very interesting itinerary for you. When I traced our route on the map it resembled the symbol of infinity, that’s why this tour is literally an infinite adventure! You can see the day-by-day program at the end of this description.

    In every tour I take a maximum of 6 participants. During five nights we’ll sleep in the most comfortable mountain huts of the Alps. Regarding the technical difficulty, it is enough to have a basic knowledge of skiing and an intermediate physical preparation. I can take you there from March till May.

    So if you find this ski touring trip interesting, feel free to contact me now and book your placeI’ll be happy to guide you on this great ski tour around Monte Rosa and Matterhorn.

    Itinerary

     
    • Day 1Cervinia - Ferraro Hut

      From Cervinia we will take the cable car to the Plateau Rosa and then skin all the way up to the Breithorn Pass. If the weather allows us we can climb to the top of the Breithorn. Our route then passes below the Breithorn and Pollux to the Verra Pass from which a long but enjoyable descent over the glacier will lead to the Ferraro Hut. We’ll be welcomed by Fausta and some fantastic food. We’ll have dinner and spend the night at this hut.

    • Day 2Monte Rosa Ski Resort - Mantova Hut

      A half hour on climbing skins will take us to the pistes of the Monte Rosa Ski Resort, where we’ll take full advantage of the excellent snow for some off-piste runs. At the end of the day, we will be setting off the Passo dei Salati and heading up to the Mantova Hut, where we’ll have dinner and sleep.

    • Day 3Guide del Cervino Hut

      Early in the morning we’ll set off upwards following the Lys Glacier to the Lysjoch. From there, a long descent will take us over the Grenzgletscher to Furi. From here we will take the cable car to the Guide del Cervino Hut, on the Plateau Rosa, where we will enjoy a meal and stay overnight.

    • Day 4Prarayer Hut

      With the ski runs still uncrowded we will head down from the Plateau Rosa to Cervinia. From there, we’ll skin our way up to the Colle di Vofrède before traversing the Colle di Bella Tsa and making our way down to the Prarayer Hut. We’ll eat a local meal and spend the night in that hut.

    • Day 5Nacamuli Hut

      We’ll head back up via the Oren Valley until we are close to the Nacamuli Hut. After that, we’ll continue to the Col Collon and the Col de l’Eveque. There, we must replace the skins for the crampons and climb the exposed ridge of the Becca d’Oren. From our position, right on the border between Italy and Switzerland, the views are breathtaking. The descent to the Nacamuli Hut is short but really fun. Meal and overnight stay at the hut.

    • Day 6Matterhorn - Cervinia

      The last day starts with a climb back up to the Col Collon, followed by the descent of the Haut Glacier d’Arolla. When we arrive below the Col du Mont Brulé, we’ll take off our skis for the 200-m climb to the col itself. The descent from the col takes us into the heart of the Glacier de Tsan from where a long but easy ascent leads to the Col de Valpelline and incredible views of the Dent d’Herens and the west side of the Matterhorn. At this point, we must face the 2300-m descent to Furi and then pass under the north face of the Matterhorn. We’ll then head up to the Klein Matterhorn by cable car, before finishing our adventure with a long descent to Cervinia.

    What People are Saying about Peaks Hunter Mountain Guide Team

     

    I want to post my review on Peaks Hunter Mountain Guides ( see below).I climbed Mont Blanc in September 2019 with Peak Hunter Mountain Guides. The service I received was excellent. They provided me with all the information I requested and more. Scheduling was clear and everything went as it was planned. My guide, Luigi Gagliardi, is a highly skilled professional. He did a great job taking me to the summit, providing me with all instructions and taking a great care of me. I learnt a lot from him. He is also a great person.

    We were guided by PeaksHunter in a Gran Paradiso ascent, and it was memorable! We just would like to thank Silvia and Elis for the wonderful trip we\'ve experienced with their guidance. The communication and organization before and during the trip was clear and detailed. We felt completely supported and safe accompanied by Silvia and Elis. Thanks for clarify all our questions and help us very kindly mainly considering our lack of experience in trips like that. At supermarket, the ride to the park, the lunch before we start, during the trail, at meals in the mountain, at all these moments we had great company and support. This was our first ascent in this altitude and Silvia and Elis demonstrated be professionals very experienced and high skilled. We appreciate the way they enjoy the nature in a respectful and safe manner. They were attentive to the minor details regarding our security and also our experience. We are lucky to have had you as our guides. The best photo we took it is not enough to express how good is the feeling to be at this point in the mountains and appreciate pure nature. We saw landscapes completely new for our eyes in a memorable experience. Silvia and Elis, thank you very much. We really appreciate our time in Gran Paradiso and we feel lucky to be guided by you.
