Description

For 3 days, I would like to guide you on an exciting ski touring journey around the Basodino mountain (3,273m).

Resting on the border between Switzerland and Italy, in the canton of TicinoBasodino is a wonderful peak that offers a number of amazing descents. Moreover,  the scenery is spectacular as you will get to admire the incredible peaks of the Alps!

Each day of this trip will provide you with a unique experience around the Basodino mountain.

On the first day of the ski tour, we will ascent to the top of the Helgenhorn (2,837m). After that, you will descend along the gorgeous San Giacamo pass until we reach the Maria Luisa mountain hut (2,160m), where we will spend the night.

For the second day, we will ascent to the top of the Kastelluke (2,714m). After that, we will descend to the Basodino glacier. From there, we will make our way to the Basodino summit. After you have enjoyed the summit’s incredible views, we will then descend back to the Maria Luisa mountain hut, where you will get to relax and rest for the evening.

Finally, on the last day of this ski touring adventure we will make our way to the top of the Fiorina and the Marchhorn (2,962m). Afterwards, we will descend to All’Acqua, where the trip will conclude.

Ski touring anywhere in the Alps is an unforgettable experience. The peaks, the powder, the views and the ascents and descents are absolutely stunning. And if you would like to experience that adventure for yourself around the beautiful Basodino mountain, all you have to do is send a request. I look forward to guiding you.

About the guide

I was born in 1973. I am a professional mountain guide and a part-time professor. My guests and their safety are at the heart of all my tours. This is why I always closely analyze weather and mountain conditions, as well as the ideal maximum number of participants.

I work hard to keep my clients motivated and help them reach their goals. Ensuring a good group experience is one of the keys to success. I believe that a good spirit up in the mountain and sharing is important to have a good overall experience.

I love spending time with friends in the mountain. If it is in winter, all the better. My favorite region for mountaineering is Chamonix. My favorite mountain? It depends on the season. But if I need to choose one, I would say Eiger mountain. Some of my favorite climbing routes are Apriti Cielo – Osogna TI, the north ridge of the Eiger mountain and the Marinelli channel on skis. In terms of terrain, I can't choose between rock and ice: mixed is the way to go.

My favorite book? Aleph, by Paulo Cohelo. My favorite film? Meet Joe Black. My favorite online sites? Many! www.planetmountain.com, www.up-climbing.com, www.gulliver.it and www.camptocamp.org

Finally, the best way to finish a tour for me is with Pommes Chips Nature and a nice cold beer. I hope you join me in one of my tours soon.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
