Mixing the adventure of mountaineering with the freeing excitement of ski touring, this ski mountaineering trip is unforgettable. Taking place on both the Gran Paradiso (4,061m) and Grand Combin (4,314m) peaks, this trip will take you to amazing heights in the Alps of both Italy and Switzerland.

This trip lasts for 3 wonderful days. However, there is also a 5 day version, which you can enjoy as well. If interested, just let me know in advance.

Throughout the adventure, you will get to explore exciting alpine terrain. As a result, you will also get to marvel at the amazing views you will get of the peaks above and the valleys below.

The descents you will get to enjoy on both Grand Paradiso and the Grand Combin are unbelievable. And at the end of the day, you will get to rest and relax in your comfortable accommodations. Hence ensuring you are ready for the following day’s fun!

Ski mountaineering can be arduous. As a result, participants on this trip should be in good physical condition. Furthermore, you should be able to ski at an intermediate to advanced level. Finally, some mountaineering experience is required as well. To ensure participants meet the criteria necessary to have a safe trip, there will be some testing on the first day.

Ski mountaineering around incredible peaks in the Alps like Grand Paradiso and the Grand Combin is an adventure you will never forget. To be a part of it, just send me a request. I look forward to guiding you.

I also offer a 4 day freeriding trip in the Aosta valley, which you can enjoy here.

About the Guide

 
 

My biggest satisfaction is to explore new places, and share it with a rope-mate. And to do it as a professional is the realization of a dream. At the age of 15, I knew I wanted to become a mountain guide, I wanted to live in the mountains, teach and share my new passion. In 2006 I realized my dream and I became a professional mountain guide. I like sharing my knowledge and experience with my clients, taking a journey that transforms slowly the guide-client relationship in climbing partner and often in friendship. I am not and never will be a lone climber but "a company" 'explorer. My specialty lies certainly in climbing on ice and mixed in the high mountains. With my clients I climbed the most difficult faces in the Alps, explored mountain ranges, traveled between America, Asia, Africa, and Europe.

What People are Saying about Enrico Bonino

 

Here is the summary of my experience with Explore-share and Enrico: Explore-share was one of several companies I considered before my trip to the Alps. I was very happy with my choice from the moment I sent my first email. The staff members responded promptly and answered all of my questions very clearly and kindly. I was blown away with the professionalism they have demonstrated. Two days after sending my first email I was in contact with my guide, Enrico. With Enrico we climbed different routes in the area of Mt. Blanc and practiced different techniques for about ten days. Enrico was an excellent guide. He was patient, thoughtful, and improved my skills tremendously. He was very thorough and safety conscious. After ten days of climbing I felt a lot of trust between the two of us, which I believe makes us a good team for future climbing adventures. I would highly recommend Explore-share and Enrico to anyone who is planning to explore the beauty of the Alps and take the challenge of climbing these magnificent mountains. During my trip I met Italian, French, Swiss and German guides. All of them were extremely enthusiastic and nice. Going to Europe for climbing? Choose European professionals. You will not be disappointed.

Getting in contact through explore-share.com with Enrico Bonino, mountain guide, was really a snap. Some time later I got in contact over phone/mail with Enrico. Finally we found a time window in February to go ice climbing for 2 days in Chamonix. 850 km and a night later I found myself on the Italian side of the Mt Blanc in Courmayeur. Enrico took us to the traverse of the Aiguilles d\'Entrèves. Not very difficult but perfect to acquaint myself again with granite and mixed climbing after a lapse of ... +20 years. The weather was brilliant, blue skies, sun all over and the scenery was +++, pure enjoyment ! The next day the weather was grey and some snow was forecasted. So Enrico took me to Cogne where we climbed the 7 lengths of Ghost Goully. Not a pure icefall, it has some mixed, more mountain-like, character. After hiking back to the village Enrico took me to his favourite pub where we had a tasty piece of pizza and pastry. A Short trip but just what I needed to get some feeling climbing with crampons and ice axes again. This is definitely asking for more and I\'m looking forward to the next trip ! Thank you Enrico, Bruno
