Description

The Monte Rosa Massif and the Matterhorn are two of the Alps highlights! Both popular winter sport destinations, they are a haven for splitboarders, snowboarders and skiers alike! On this 6-day splitboarding traverse, I will guide you to both these amazing places in the Alps!

Located in the Piedmont and Aosta Valley region, Monte Rosa is a massif in the Italian Alps near the Swiss canton of Valais. Anyone who knows the Alps knows the famous Matterhorn, which is a great and classic winter sport challenge.

Our traverse resembles the infinity symbol when outlined on the map, which is why I have dubbed this the “infinity tour”. There is certainly something about mountaineering in the Alps that feels very special. On our traverse we will not only get the chance to splitboard, but also to discover some of the most awe inspiring spots on this unique route. We will explore glaciers, amazing runs, stunning sceneries and also enjoy the hospitality and comforting cuisine of the mountain huts we stay in on the way!

We will set off from Cervinia. After a quick trip briefing and equipment check, we will being. Every day we will explore a different area of the Alps and practice our splitboarding and mountaineering skills. Because this is a 6-day traverse in the Alps you will need some previous splitboarding experience as well as a good fitness level. Of course, I will be there to guide you every step of the way!

Are you ready to join me on a unique adventure in the Alps? Then book you place now on this exhilarating 6-day splitboarding traverse from Monte Rosa to Matterhorn!

Itinerary

Day 1: Cervinia- 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 2: Monte Rosa Ski Resort - Mantova Hut

A half hour on skins will take us to the Monte Rosa Ski Resort pistes, 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 3: Guide 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. Finally, 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 4: Prayayer Hut

With the 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 5: Nacamuli 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 skins for crampons and climb the exposed ridge of Becca d’Oren. Right on the border between Italy and Switzerland, we will catch some breathtaking views. The descent to the Nacamuli Hut is short but a lot of fun. Meal and overnight stay at the hut.

Day 6: Matterhorn - 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 splitboards 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.
