Highlights

 
     

    The Margherita hut (4559 m), in the Piedmont, in Italy, is the highest building in Europe. Climbing up to it with skis is definitely an experience that you can’t miss.

    From its summit, an epic descent follows. In fact, it’s one of the longest in the Alps: 3300 m! Besides, the landscape is beautiful and the glaciers are great.

    For this trip you need to be in good physical shape. In addition, ski mountaineering experience is a must.

    We can go between early March and the first week of May, which is when the refuges are open.

    If you are looking for a 1-day trip, I also offer this one in Monte Rosa.

    About the Guide

     
     

    I am Marco, and I am an UIAGM certified mountain guide since 2003. I started rock climbing when I was 14, and at the age of 20 I climbed the great Californian walls of El Capitan. Then i explored Patagonia, climbing the mythical Fitz Roy. I have also opened new routes in the Moroccan High Atlas and in the Alps.

    My passion for the mountains drives me to work throughout the year, looking for new adventures. Depending on the season, I take my clients rock climbing, mountaineering, ice climbing, freeriding, hiking... Either in the Alps, since i'm based in the Monte Rosa area, or in many other countries, in different continents.

    The mountain as a playground has no limits!

    What People are Saying about Marco Cunaccia

     

    Our guide was Pietro and not marco like we initially thought. Pietro was awesome, it is all about his clients and most importantly safety. We did two runs and it was an incredible experience. Guide is a must to explore the hidden spots because Monterosa ski is massive.

    PAOLO was an amazing guide. This trip was the “craziest” experience of our groups lives. We saw incredible terrain, had great snow, and challenged ourselves. Highly recommend

    We had a fablupus day. We were initially booked with Marco but due to the weather we went later in the week and Marco wasn\'t available. We had another guide called Paolo Tombini and he was very good, very professional and good company.
