Description

In the Eastern Alps of Switzerland there are a number of beautiful peaks to ascend and descend. And for 7 days, I would like to guide you on a splitboard tour through several of them, from Piz Palu (3,901m) to Piz Bernina (4,048m).

Throughout this trip you will get to see and appreciate the beauty of the Alps. You will be constantly up in the peaks, both day and night, as we will be spending several nights in high altitude mountain huts.

Along with the beautiful peaks during this splitboarding tour, you will also get to see some glorious glaciers as well, including the Morteratsch glacier. This trip also includes scenic cable car rides, nights in a hotel in Pontresina, traverses on various passes including the Di Sasso Rosso pass and the Marinelli pass. There are also towns like St. Moritz and Sils, along with lakes like Silsersee that you will get to see. However, the real treat of this trip is the peaks. And you will get to ascend and descend several of them.

The climbs, just like the splitboarding descends of the peaks on this trip, are absolutely thrilling. However, they are not easy. There will be some highly technical climbing aspects on this trip. Hence why it is important that participants on this trip have prior mountaineering, as well as splitboarding experience. You should also be in good physical condition as well.

This week long splitboarding tour through the eastern Alps is an adventure you will never forget. So send me a request and get ready to ascend and descend magnificent mountains like Piz Bernina.

I also offer another week long splitboarding adventure at the Monte Rosa peak in the Italian Alps as well.

Accommodation

We will be staying in a hotel in Pontresina, along with various mountain huts during the splitboard tour, including the Coax mountain hut, the Marinelli mountain hut, the Marco and Rosa mountain hut and the Boval mountain hut.

More info

Participants should bring the following items with them: complete ski equipment, 40L backpack, thermal underwear, warm jacket, Goretex jacket and pants, hood, gloves and goggles, snacks, sunscreen and lip balm, basic toilet kit, personal first aid kit, thermos, and cash as many mountain huts don't accept credit cards.

Meeting point

St. Moritz or Pontresina.
