Join Riccardo, IFMGA-certified mountain guide, for this 3-day ski mountaineering trip starting from Saas Fee. Explore some amazing peaks in the Swiss Alps and discover its top-quality snow!



3 Days

Mar - Jun




* 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!

Mountain 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.

What people are saying about Riccardo



Riccardo was an exceptional guide. On this 4 day skiing trip with him, he taught me how to ski tour and took me to many incredible locations. He was happy and able to help me whenever I got to a difficult location on the mountain and ensured I was always comfortable with what I was doing. Additionally, he is quite a great photographer so I got many nice photos from the adventure. I would definitely recommend Riccardo and this trip for anyone who is interested in trying off-piste skiing or ski touring.



Riccardo is a super capable mountain guide who makes the right decisions the guarantee safety. He has years of experience in the mountains doing many different sports and activities and will align you skills with the right challenge. He is also is easy to communicate and plan with, both online and offline!



I did the 4 day off piste at Mont Blanc. Riccardo is a very patient,funny and professional guide. He definitely speaks all 3 languages fluently and is accessible to ask questions and plan your ski trip. His vast knowledge about the mountain and skiing are incredible.He is always on time and checks the weather the night before to determine the iternary for the next day. He is very organized and helpful too. He even came with me to get my ski gear. He will always give you suggestions on which mountain and will ask what you would like to do. Due to the bad weather, I got to ski La Flegere and Le Tour. The views were still incredible and we had fresh powder snow. I had a great time and learned alot from him. It was an incredible experience that I will never forget and would definitely recommend him.
