CHAMONIX TO ZERMATT ON SKIS

Setting off from the Mont Blanc valley, you will cover vast backcountry terrain until you reach the slopes below the Matterhorn in Switzerland 6 days later. Crossing through 2 countries and over many cols, this is a tough but rewarding experience you will not forget in a hurry. Epic descents and scenic climbs, this ski tour has it all.

After many years of skiing the Haute Route we still keep discovering hidden gems and hidden powder pockets that keep us coming back for more. Our guides are all highly experienced IFMGA qualified ski guides with a vast range of knowledge that you’ll be sure to tap into during the trip. This trip runs with a minimum of 4 people and a maximum of 6 people.

Adventure: Alps, Haute Route Ski Tour


What to expect from your accommodation

When not skiing the mountain we know the importance of having a comfortable base. That's why we've chosen these mountain lodge with their super comfortable rooms and warm atmosphere. The perfect spot to rest up in-between your stays in the mountain huts. But don't let that nice linen and chocolate on the bed win your favour just yet. Wait until you've experienced a good old mountain hut with its basic, but charming amenities and friendly hosts. We bet you go home missing the huts more!

C2

Chamonix valley

The lodge is an excellent base for our Haute Route ski tour. With stunning views of the mountains, it's well placed and just a few minutes away from Chamonix centre. Rooms are usually on a twin, triple or quad share basis with en suite bathrooms. There is a bar and restaurant for the evenings, with some lovely outdoor space to relax in. You will spend your first and last night of the trip here with dinner included.

WHAT TO EXPECT

HERE'S YOUR ITINERARY 

Please note this is a suggested itinerary only. While we try and stick to the tried and tested itinerary below, the mountain and the weather sometimes have other ideas. You must be capable of sticking to the required group pace in order to complete the tour. If ability or fitness is hindering the trip, you may be asked to drop out of the tour at your own expense.

  • Day 1:
    Arrival Day in Chamonix valley

    On arrival day in the Chamonix valley, at the foot of Mont Blanc, you meet your guides and fellow skiers at the accommodation for a welcome briefing in the evening. We'll discuss your equipment and the current weather and mountain conditions so that we all feel ready for the challenge ahead.

  • Day 2:
    Ski the Grands Montets (3295m)

    Warm up skiing, avalanche transceiver training and kit checks followed by an epic descent down the backside of the Grands Montets to the Argentiere glacier. Today is a test ski day for the group and the guide to make sure everyone is up to scratch. This is where your previous ski touring experience will come in handy to refresh skills and make sure you're ready to take on the route. We say farewell to the groomed pistes and set off into the backcountry. A short ski tour gets us to the Argentiere mountain hut where we tuck in for the night after a warm dinner.

    450m ascent, 900m descent (6-7hrs)

  • Day 3:
    Onwards into Switzerland

    An early start as the sunrise lights up the towering peaks in the Argentiere basin - including the majestic Aiguille Verte (4122m). We ski tour up to the col du Chardonnet (3323m) or col du Passon (3028m), depending on current conditions, followed by skiing over to the Trient hut where we cross over into Switzerland.

    1100m ascent, 1200m descent (6-7hrs)

  • Day 4:
    Summit Mont Fort (3328m)

    After a fantastic ski down the north facing Val d’Arpette, we take a short private transfer from Champex to Verbier. We then use the lift systems to access another great descent from Mont Fort, the highest peak in the Verbier ski area at 3328m. Once down the other side we are well and truly in the backcountry once again and we take on another ski tour up to the Rosablanche which leads to a final ski descent to the picturesque Prafleuri hut.

    900m ascent, 2400m descent (8-9hrs)

  • Day 5:
    The journey continues to the Dix Hut

    We set off early to make it over the col des Roux which sits at 2804m. Stunning views of the alpine peaks surrounding us abound as we make a long traverse alongside the lac des Dix followed by a final climb to the Dix hut.

    900m ascent, 600m descent (6-7hrs)

  • Day 6:
    Pigne d'Arolla

    One of the best and most challenging days of the ski tour. Climb up and summit the Pigne d’Arolla at 3790m, the highest point of the entire Haute Route. After enjoying the spectacular summit views we ski down to the charming Vignettes hut for a well deserved dinner.

    950m ascent, 700m descent (5-6hrs).

  • Day 7:
    The final descent to Zermatt

    An early start for the final day of this epic challenge. Saving the best until last, we cross 3 cols before skiing down the stunning slopes of the Stockli glacier leading under the Matterhorn to Zermatt. One of the best days skiing to be had in the Alps. After some well deserved drinks in Zermatt we return to Chamonix by private transfer.

    1,100m ascent; 2,400m descent (8-10hrs)

  • Day 8:
    Departure Day

    After a well deserved nights' sleep in the cosy hotel, its time for one last breakfast before the trip ends and you make your journey home.

Frequently asked questions about this adventure

HR: What's the weather like?

The ski touring season for this trip runs from mid March to the end of April. This is the best Read more

The ski touring season for this trip runs from mid March to the end of April. This is the best window for favourable conditions,  ski-lift access and guarded refuges. Be prepared for a real mix of weather and temperatures, from freezing cold early mornings to warm sunny afternoons. There really is no knowing what to expect for a trip like this.

HR: What are the snow conditions like?

As you’re probably aware, snow conditions are forever changing and therefore it’s very difficult to predict. As a Read more

As you’re probably aware, snow conditions are forever changing and therefore it’s very difficult to predict. As a general rule of thumb, March will be cooler with a greater potential for powder snow but shorter days. Towards the end of April you’ll get more spring snow and warmer weather but there is a chance you’ll have to walk some of the lower sections of the route. The unknown is all part of the adventure though, right? Whenever you ski in the mountains there will always be a risk of avalanches. The risk changes on a daily basis due to multiple factors but your guide will manage this and will ensure to select the safest and most enjoyable routes for each day your trip.

HR: How difficult is this trip?

We class this as a Level D difficulty. That means you’ve been on more adventures than you’ve had hot dinners and you’ve built up a crafty skill set to tackle most challenges out there. It’s go time Captain Scott!  Although we know that’s probably not quite right you can’t tackle this trip without being a competent off-piste skier and having experience of ski touring. We can help you get both but not on this trip. You will also need to come with a good base level of fitness. On some days you might be skinning for up to 5 hours so a good power to weight ratio is advised.

Don’t worry, you’ll stay well fed and watered on this trip.  You will be ski touring for 3-5 hours a day so you’ll work up quite an appetite. The trip is based in both France and Switzerland so you will get to experience the best of both local cuisines. Think croissants, cheese and wine with some good strong coffee. Breakfasts and dinners at the refuges are included in your package but you’ll need to order your own lunches when you get to each hut. It’s well worth stocking up on snacks for the trip before you arrive (you can also stock up in the huts but for a higher price) as you’ll need them to keep your energy levels up each day while ski touring. All the huts accept credit cards but it’s worth carrying some cash as card machines can fail from time to time.

Let’s face it, these types of trips don’t come risk free. We’re putting ourselves in amazing environments but also environments that carry an element of risk with them.

"If asked about my favourite mountain or mountain range, it wouldn't be easy to answer since perfect places to climb, ski or explore can be found all over the world. But, if I had to choose one, I think I'd say the Pyrenees, not very high, but wild and still quite unknown: the mountains where I learnt when I was a child and where I can still live great adventures far from the crowd".
