The Haute Route Ski Traverse - Chamonix to Zermatt
There are a few variations of the route, however our preference is the Verbier Variation which gives the best blend of quality skiing, exciting terrain, and reasonable travel times on our skis each day. On day 3, we use a local Gondola in Verbier which makes gaining altitude fast and efficient leaving the village. Beyond Verbier, hightlights of the route include stays in Verbier, the spectacular Cabane Des Dix, an outstanding ascent to the Pigne D'Arolla and finish the week with the run of a lifetime as we ski down from summit level, below the iconic north face of the Matterhorn to arrive in Zermatt your waiting hotel and a team meal in the town center. The huts we visit are opperated by both Swiss and French Alpine Clubs. While they are comfortable and clean, they also provide hearty mountain meals for our groups each night.Itinerary
This Chamonix Zermatt Haute Route requires you to have all day hiking fitness, and capable of maintaining moderate output all day long (7-10hrs). You should be comfortable with your ski technique in intermediate/advanced terrain. There may be times when the Guides need to employ the use of ropes while both skiing up and down. You will be skiing with a pack (~20lbs.) for the duration of the program. If you haven't skied with a pack before, it does take some getting used to. Getting out for some practice before the trip will give you an idea of what to expect and how to adjust your technique.Stop At:
