Join me on this program around Zermatt and spend 1 week ski touring across the fantastic mountains in this area.

Situated at the foot of the iconic Matterhorn, Zermatt is one of the most important and popular ski destinations in the world. It is the perfect spot for unforgettable experiences in the snow with stunning views as backdrop. If you’re love ski touring, you can’t miss the chance to explore this area!

On this adventure, I invite you to join me on the famous Spaghetti tour. First of all, we’ll meet in the Geneva Airport and transfer you to Täsch, a Swiss commune in the Canton of Valais. As for the tour, most of the huts are on the Italian side, so we’ll explore the border area between the two countries.

During the activity, we’ll enjoy the descents of several amazing mountains in the Monte Rosa Massif, such as the Breithorn (4,164 meters), the Dufourspitze (4,634 meters) and the Nordend (4,609 meters). At the bottom of the page, you can take a look at a more detailed description of each day’s activity.

Also, to take part of this program, keep in mind that it’s mandatory to have prior ski touring experience as well a good level of fitness.

Do you think this ski touring program would suit you? Then all you have to do is send the request and make your reservation. I’m sure you’ll love skiing across the beautiful mountains surrounding Zermatt.

In addition, I lead several ski touring programs in Europe, such as these in Spain, France and Austria. Check them out!

What people are saying about Martin



We had the best time ever, what a stunning place Silvretta is, I'm in love! Martin was utterly brilliant, relaxed but professional - keeping us safe at all times. We will definitely return, so many mountain's to climb, glaciers to ski and huts to drink beer in! Thank you all so very much. Love to all xx



Although weather prevented 100% completion, Martin was great and had a couple of great alternatives. We had a great trip!



Martin provided us with a challenging weekend that stretched and developed our skiing a lot. He was very responsive to our feedback tailoring the programme as we went. Would absolutely book him again.


Impresionante Martin....te hace alcanzar lo inalcanzable, con una sensación de seguridad increible. Un gran profesional



Martin was incredible! From the pre trip preparations to managing all logistics while there - he made sure I had everything I needed, taught me alot, and importantly kept me safe! He truly provided a first class adventure.
