This 4-day tour with Marco, IFMGA certified mountain guide, will be a full immersion into the beautiful Monte Rosa, ski touring in great secret spots.
Monte Rosa, located in the eastern Pennine Alps, is a fantastic labyrinth composed of peaks over 4000 m and beautiful glaciers. During this trip, the immersion in a mountainous environment will be total.
For example, we will ski through the Grenz- Gletscher. We will return to Alagna going by Breithorn (4167 m) and Castor (4220 m).
Each night we will sleep in a different mountain hut. All of them are in a beautiful setting.

The last day is also the longest! We go up to the summit of Castore (4220 m), then descend through Colle di Felik. Afterwards we go back up to Naso del Lyskamm (4190 m), from where a long and beautiful descent takes us to Alagna (1200 m).
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!

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.
