Description

La Patrouille des Glaciers is a mythical ski touring course. It takes place every two years. The large patrouille runs from Zermatt to Verbier. It is 53 km long which is about 110 km-effort. The small patrouille starts from Arolla and reaches Verbier. The route is 27 km long which is about 50 km-effort.

This course takes place in a impressive beautiful framework! Tête Blanche, Riedmatten pass, Barma, Rosablanche, Chaux pass … so many beautiful landscapes that will remain etched in your memory.

I’ve run this course several times already. This is a fabulous experience I like to share with my clients and friends.

But beware, this course does not just happen! A physical and mental training is essential, as a good team cohesion, able to withstand all tests.

I propose to coach you on some key aspects of the race so that can be a good time for you and you can work on the goal that you set.

Depending on your needs, we will work on:

  • Physical training

  • Skiing techniques of roped ascent and descent ski

  • Path / trail recognition

  • Mental preparation

  • Team management

  • Acclimatization management

  • Nutrition management

  • Equipment preparation

I invite you to contact me to discuss. I will define a customized program based on your wishes. I’d be happy to be your guide in this supervision and preparation!

About the guide

Nicole

Mountain Leader

UIAGM / IFMGA mountain guide
Growing up in the Alps, the mountains have always been a great playground for me and my family. I started mountaineering with my family, first by doing some easy trekking with my parents, then by climbing more technical stuff with my brothers and sister. Today, I'm an UIAGM mountain guide, I'm also writing my master thesis about snow and avalanches.
I climbed the Eiger North Face with my brother and boyfriend. I has been my most intense mountaineering experience until now. I have also done several ascents in the Chamonix area, which I love and like to describe it as the "Disneyland of mountaineering".
My long term project is to climb technical ascents in women teams.
I will be happy to guide you for some climbing, mountaineering or skiing trips, here in Switzerland or anywhere else in the Alps. Please don't hesitate to get in touch with me.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
