Zermatt is one of, if not the most famous ski resort town in the Swiss Alps. Located in the Valais canton, Zermatt is surrounded by beautiful peaks. Some examples of those peaks include the Dom (4,545m), Weisshorn (4,505m) and the Matterhorn (4,478m). With mountains like that gazing down from all sides, Zermatt would be an excellent place to visit just for the scenery alone. However, the purpose of this 3 day trip is to enjoy what Zermatt is most famous for, the skiing!

The skiing in Zermatt is nothing short of incredible. And on this trip the focus will be on freeride, or off-piste skiing, so you will have a chance to explore a great deal of the area, while also taking advantage of the top-of-the-line, modern ski lifts.

Weather conditions will dictate much of what we can and don’t do. However, if the weather is on our side, the options are plentiful. We may ascend the majestic Breithorn mountain (4,164m), while enjoying its slopes. Or we may venture into Zermatt’s Italian counterpart, Cervinia, for even more great skiing.

There will be no shortage of gorgeous places to ski and incredible things to see on this trip. There are also several hotels that can be found throughout the area, so you can rest assured you will be resting in the nights comfortably as well.

Filled with high glaciers and exciting slopes and routes, the skiing in Zermatt is deserving of its reputation. I have no doubt you will have such an exciting and memorable time here the 3 days will end so fast you’ll want to experience them again. 

Send me a message if you want to join me on this trip.

Please note that this is a private program. Unfortunately, for the time being, I don’t have any group departures planned.

If you are looking for more free ride skiing trips in the Swiss Alps, I also offer a thrilling 6-day trip in Zinal.

IFMGA/UIAGM Mountain Guide

I am a professional mountain & ski guide. I have been guiding now since 1994. I have always been into the mountains – skiing at age 4 and secretly sneaking away for overnight bivouacs in the mountains behind my parents house. At age 13, I decided to pursue my airy scrambles for something that looked a bit more fun. I went to work as an assistant bringing out other young teenagers on exciting hiking and more importantly to me, climbing outings. One thing led to another and before I knew it my world revolved around the mountains.

At the age of 18 I moved to France to pursue my passions, later becoming actively involved with the French Alpine Club in Dijon and organizing outings and putting up climbing routes here and there in Burgundy.

In 1992, I entered the infamous ENSA or French guides school in Chamonix and became the first American to receive international certification (UIAGM/IFMGA) through this prestigious school.

Since then I have been making my living as a full time professional guide, climbing and skiing in many of the worlds great mountain ranges. I speak fluent French, some Italian and I am now learning German.

Previously I have worked as a technical consultant for Petzl, and Grivel.
