Climbing Weissmies in the Pennine Alps is a great mountaineering adventure for those who wish to try their first 4000m peak, with Yann, IFMGA guide.
Crossing the Weissmies in the Valais, above Saas Grund, from the Almageller cabine in Hohsaas, is a magnificent mountaineering race. This is an ideal first ascent and crossing at 4000m!
After an early breakfast, we walk on the moraines until the Zwischbergenpass. If the weather is nice, we will enjoy there one of the most beautiful sunrises in the Alps! Then, after a short walk on the glacier, we reach the ridge. It offers a nice easy and varied climb until the summit! From the summit, the itinerary follows the Triftgletscher until the cable car that takes us to the valley. It offers magnificent views of the whole Mischabel massif!
You’ll find a 2-day itinerary below this description.
However, if you have more time and you wish to prolong the pleasure up there, I propose to you the following. Instead of descending right away to the valley, we can spend the night in the Weissmieshütte and continue the next day with the Lagginhorn, another beautiful 4000 in the region.
I invite you to contact me if you are interested in this beautiful adventure!It’s ideal for mountaineering beginners who wish to have their first experience at 4000m. I would love taking you up there.

Attracted by the mountains since childhood, I started with climbing and alpinism. I then discovered my passion for ski touring.
I started a Young&Sport instructor training to lead young people in the mountain, accompanied by guides. This experience inspired me to become a mountain guide, and I got certified in September 2015.
I work in a guide's office with other guides friends as Stéphane, Raphael, Christian and Jean-Luc, mountain leader.
What I love the most: make people enjoy, allow them to discover a region, laughing, everything in a safe way.
So if there's something you wish, if you dream of exploring a region or country, don't hesitate to contact me.
See you soon for new discoveries!
Yann was a fantastic guide for the last 3 days in Verbier. He was flexible and really listened to what we wanted, which was fun and adventure but not too hard core. Our teenage children enjoyed the experience very much. We covered most of the resort and enjoyed some off-piste touring as well and we felt safe and informed the entire time.
Yann is a Young, Energetic and Experienced mountain guide. We have been Touring for 4 days in the Jungfrau Region with very mixed weather conditions. Yann showed me his abilities to lead under very tough weather conditions. Although always looking for Adventure and Challenges, even under the tough weather conditions, he proved his experienced as a guide and knowledge of the region. Safety is always first and from there we strive for our limits. We had an amazing 4-days and future adventures with Yann have already been discussed! Definitely the guide i want to rely on high up the mountains!
We discovered a great and safe touring trip at back Montfort via a small ascent on the “Mont Calme” with our guide Yann. We had great powder and great fun and felt very safe thanks to the experience of our guide Yann. Do not hesitate to hire him!
Just back from an amazing powder skiing day with Yann in the Valais. Loads of nice turns in the powder in a breathtaking landscape. Full of energy, Yann is very professional & safe and at the same time relaxed & fun. We had a great time!
Après avoir du changer d\'objectif initial à cause de la météo, nous étions parti pour le Zinalrothorn. Malheureusement, la roche était givrée et nous avons du faire demi-tour juste en dessous de l\'épaule (4017m). Grâce à Yann qui connait bien la région, nous avons pu rattraper la journée en allant faire le sommet du Blanc de Moming par l\'arrête E ou arrête du Blanc, très esthétique, bien raide et effilée. Malgré la déception due à la météo, nous avons malgré tout passer une journée incroyable en plein coeur de la Couronne Impériale. Je recommande vivement Yann et Jonathan. Vraiment sympas et très pros, on se sent en sécurité en toutes situations. Et leur connaissance du terrain permet d\'envisager des alternatives de qualité. Merci a Explore-share.com de nous avoir mis en contact!
Once again it was a great experience and I was so happy to do it with Yann. It was only myself this time and we did a 3-day tour, came back on Saturday evening completely exhausted (which is a good sign!). This time he really challenged me and that\'s also what i was looking for. the first 4000m peak was climbed and it definitely taste to much more! The area is so impressive and spectacular!
2 jours fantastiques, avec un guide qui ressent bien jusqu\'ou il peut pousser ses clients, qui explique beaucoup sur les techniques et la lecture du terrain (un grand plus!), et qui de plus est très sympa. A refaire chaque année! Bruno, Renaud et Mathieu
I often ski with Stephane. He is a very nice guide with a very good knowledge about security. He is always looking for the best spots which will combine excellent snow and safe conditions. He is very communicative and friendly.
J\'ai la chance de skier chaque année avec Steph depuis qu\'il est guide. Il trouve toujours d\'excellents plans ski et rando en valais ou ailleurs. Steph est ultra professionnel et le fait qu\'il soit sauveteur est certainement un plus!
