Type of Trip
- Discover the amazing mountains of Saas Fee.
- Try yourself with a 3-day ski mountaineering trip.
- Enjoy breathtaking views of the Pennine Alps.
Saas-Fee is a winter sports area lying at the foot of the Swiss Pennine Alps. This trip is your chance to try yourself on a 5-day ski mountaineering trip.
Located near the border with Italy, Saas Fee is known for its proximity to amazing glaciers and several over-4,000m mountains. Its resort offers more than 100km of pistes, but if you get away from the lifts, you will also find an extensive stretch of powder terrain!
Ski mountaineering involves climbing on skis or carrying them, and then descending on untracked slopes. On this 3-day adventure we will explore some of the most impressive peaks of Saas Fee: Allalinhorn (4027m), Alphubel (4002m) and Stralhorn (4190m). Challenging ascents and long powder descents are guaranteed!
Furthermore, we will spend the nights in two charming mountain huts surrounded by fabulous landscapes. And as if this were not enough, they serve delicious local food!
So, what are you waiting for? If you are up for an awesome ski mountaineering trip in the Swiss Alps, then please get in touch with me. Let’s spend 3 unforgettable days in the mountains of Saas Fee!
I also offer an off-piste ski tour in the Mont Blanc massif!

If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).

About the Guide
I am Reccardo Olliveri, class 1975, registered to the Alpine Guide College of Piemonte since 2002 and graduated in environment and territory engineering at the Turin technical college. I live at Turin, but I am resident in the Alps where I practice the mountaineering activity all through the year; I love the void and I play every time I can; on rock, ice, dry tooling and also skiing.
Its with great passion that I continue practicing the mountaineering activity and I dedicate myself to pass on to all those interested to know, the spirit and the ability to dedicate oneself close to the mountain in all its forms.
