4 days to meet the Monte Rosa massif
INDIVIDUAL FEE: from 730 €
If your philosophy of life is to go off the beaten track, 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. and your challenge will be its generous slopes.
Rendezvous in Alagna at 8 am at the offices of Alagna.it 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.
An early morning roped ascent to Punta Giordani at 4046 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.
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.
Return to Alagna via the Cime Bianche hill by skiing the entire Monterosaski from Champoluc to Alagna
