Description

Join one of our highly trained guides for a wonderful ski touring trip among the breathtaking Monte Rosa and enjoy an amazing panorama.

Monte Rosa is one of the most famous and beautiful mountains in the Alps. It’s located in the eastern region of the Pennine Alps, in the border between Switzerland and Italy. And it’s one of the best places in Europe to go ski touring from hut to hut.

Our plan is to meet you in Cervinia and take the lifts up to Plateau Rosa. From then on it will be 6 days of skiing and exploring these amazing landscapes with incredible snow.

One of the best features of this trip is that we’ll climb up and overnight in the famousĀ Regina Margherita Hut (4559 m), which is the highest mountain hut in Europe!

Also, on the 5th day we’ll traverse through 6 peaks over 4000 meters –Punta Zumstain, Punta Parrot, Ludwigshoe, Como Nero, Balmenhorn and Piramide Vincent-! This is a magnific experience that will let you admire the amazing scenery of the Alps from different perspectives!

So please send us a request to book this amazingĀ Monte Rosa backcountry skiing tour and lets plan this fantastic adventure together. We’ll guide you there with much pleasure!
