Spring 2017 - Dates to be arranged - coming soon Enquire now

Cutting through the heart of the European Alps, the Haute Route is one of the world’s finest ski mountaineering adventures. It is continuously interesting, crossing many high passes and glaciers and ascending peaks where appropriate, so as to provide you with as much downhill skiing as possible and lots of opportunities to savour the superb views. We will be staying in spectacularly situated mountain huts, where we will enjoy simple, but comfortable accommodation and good food.

Our 8 day, Chamonix to Zermatt itinerary has flexibility built in and greatly increases our chance of success if we encounter bad weather. Another option is our slightly shorter 6 day Verbier to Zermatt itinerary which stays high all the way to Zermatt without dropping down to the valley, a fantastic ski journey in it's own right. 

Whichever option is taken, the Haute Route is physically demanding, suitable for those who can ski black runs comfortably and who already have some off-piste experience. If you are unsure that your level of experience is adequate, then we run a series of backcountry programmes which focus on the essential skills needed to prepare you for this programme.
