Highlights

 
     

    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!

    We went up to Gouter hut on Saturday, to meet the guide there Sunday morning. Unfortunately I got hightsickness and we had to cancell early Sunday morning without making the final ascent. It is a beautiful trip and we will definately try again next year. Thank you

    It started good, everything felt great all the way to Tete Rousse Hut were we did sleep. We was not tired after the walk. When we arrived I did pay again for as stayng there even though I did know that I already done it. That whas both me and the guide fault. Because he did tell me to pay and some part of me then though that; if they dont think I have paid, maby I haven\'t. Insted of showing them the mail I got. Did not get a recipt either so thats 200€ I will never see again I know. At 2 in the night at breakfast I was very exited about moving on. But at the table over guide teld us that it not was a good idea for as to try to take the top. I was very surprised about this. Because everyting felt so good the first day. He told us just because we did not have a reservation at Gouter hut he did not want as to walk down the 80m wall the same day. But way we did not get the chance to show what we can do I wonder? I guess he thought that we had to little experience and he did not want to take the risk. Still I did enjoy the ~24 hours up there and I did learn how to climb mont blanc. We want to try it again but next time we are quite sure we will hike it in 3 days and no guide so we can try it on over ones.

    Although last minute, Explore-Share we able to guide me to a company who provided a fantastic guide to achieve our goal of summiting Mont Blanc last week. Good communication and quick responses - they did a great job!
