Zermatt tour: ski mountaineering to meet the Monte Rosa massif soul

If your philosophy of life is the beauty, ski touring on Monte Rosa is an inevitable choice. The base is Refuge Gnifetti, perched on the Garstelet glacier that has been challenging weather and climate change for over 100 years; the environment is Monterosa with 18 peaks above 4000 m.;  your challenge will be its generous slopes.


1st day

Rendezvous in our office in Alagna or Gressoney at 9 am for an equipment check and distribution of technical materials. Then, off-piste skiing with an introduction to ski touring and skinning uphill in the early afternoon to Capanna Gnifetti where we should arrive around 4 pm. We will do the short and not too demanding route from Indren to Gnifetti, with calm, long breaks so you can enjoy the view and gradually acclimatize. Dinner is served in the room reserved for guides and you spend the night in a comfortable bedroom.

2nd day

An early morning roped ascent to Punta Vincent at 4215 m, with the purpose of refining climbing techniques with skins on the steeper sections. You will be on a track that is not too demanding but has spectacular views which will allow us to gradually acclimatize to the altitude and prepare you for the 4200 m of Colle del Lys on the 4th day of your tour. You will return to the Refuge Gnifetti for dinner and overnight stay.

3rd day

Ascent to the Lys pass at 4200 m (approximately 3 hours) to tackle one of the most exciting descents in the Alps which runs along the Grenz glacier to Zermatt where we will stopover for dinner and overnight stay.

4th day

Return to Alagna via the Cime Bianche pass by skiing the entire Monterosaski from Champoluc to Alagna.

The programme could undergo daily changes made by the guide, with the agreement of the participants, taking into account snow and weather conditions and tachnical level of the group
