PROGRAM

The Chamonix-Zermatt ski touring route, discovered over a hundred years ago by English mountaineers, is the first great crossing of the Alps in the history of ski mountaineering.

It is an amazing route, and definitely one of the most remarkable routes of the Haute Route, linking the world’s mountaineering capital to the splendid Zermatt at the foothills of one of the most renown peaks of the Alps, Mount Cervino / Matterhorn.

Its reputation derives from the its surroundings, the sensations, and the panorama in high altitude of the Haute Route.  

The Chamonix - Zermatt ski touring route is a great classic among mountaineering enthusiasts and it is, without a doubt, very demanding with its the high altitude and difference in level of its stages require a certain amount of training.
