    I invite you to this magnificent ski touring traverse of the 4000s in Saas Fee. During 5 days, we will climb to the top of four famous summits: Alphubel, Allalinhorn, Strahlhorn and Rimpfischhorn. The panorama over the Monte Rosa summits is breathtaking.

    This ski touring traverse is geographically in continuation of the Chamonix-Zermatt Haute Route. But it’s more demanding than the Haute Route, both physically and technically. Therefore I make it my goal to help each person in the group to progress according to their level.

    This is in fact one of my favourite tours! However, due to its difficulty it’s only for people in very good physical shape with a very good off-piste level.

    We will progress in a beautiful but demanding glacial environment. During the tour, we will revise how to assess and manage the risks in the mountain, and how to use the AVD, shovel and probe.

    Programmed departure dates 2017: April 17th and April 24th. If you want to do the trip in other dates during March or April, it’s possible!

    Please note that if you are alone you are welcome to register and I will put a group together. And if you are an established group, contact me for special prices.

    Are you up for this amazing challenge? Then please contact me!
