Description

Join me in this magnificent Spaghetti tour: a 4-day ski mountaineering tour around the Monte Rosa massif. During this intense trip we will ascend several peaks in the area, between Italy and Switzerland.

We will meet in Zermatt, from where we go up to Klein Matterhorn by cable car. On the first day we ascend the famous Breithorn. The second day we conquer two peaks: Castor and Felikhorn. On the third day we also attempt two 4000ers, Ludwigshohe and the Pyramide Vincent. And before returning to Zermatt on the last day, we will summit Signalkuppe and Zumsteispitze.

So there’s no doubt that at the end of this tour you will have climbed enough peaks in the area! In my opinion, it’s a great way to explore the Monte Rosa massif. Besides, we spend the nights in Italian mountain huts, enjoying their hospitality and delicious food. In fact, that’s where the name of this tour comes from!

Tempted to spend 4 amazing days ascending so many peaks on your skis? Then please send me a request as I would love to guide you up there! Another fantastic option that you can check out is the ski traverse from Chamonix to Zermatt.
