Porta Nera, in Cervinia, is a fabulous ski descent in the heart of Monte Rosa massif. Let us show you the way to this amazing adventure!
Porta Nera (or Black Gate in english) can be reached from the Italian alpine resort of Cervinia, in the Aosta Valley. This unique backcountry descent can be compared with the mythical Vallèe Blanche, but it’s less crowded!
So this exciting program will start with an equipment check in Cervinia. Then we’ll take the cable car and make a long traverso on the Verra glacier using skins. We’ll have to climb a bit to get to our starting point, but once on top all the effort will make sense!
Our descent will start through the magnificent and pristine slopes of the Schwarzegletscher. Here we’ll cross through seracs and crevasses until we reach the edge, where we’ll move to Gorner Glacier. This section end with a famous narrow passage that goes in between rocks and a frozen stream. And at the end, when our legs start to feel the fatigue, a gentle slope will lead us back to Furi.
Sounds like an amazing plan? It is! send us a request now and we’ll start planning your visit to this amazing spot in northern Italy. You’ll spend an unforgettable day out in the mountains!
