CHAMONIX ZERMATT: The Haute Route

The Haute Route: this is the name with which the mythical traverse that leads from the Chamonix-Mont-Blanc valley to Zermatt is commonly remembered. A unique route, with great environmental, sporting and landscape value that brings you to make a real journey through the main giants of the Swiss Alps. We propose Chamonix Zermatt with a final challenge on the Breithorn, a beautiful 4000 meters mountain that seals the traverse before the long final descent to Cervinia.

After years of traveling around the world, he gives birth to the idea of Snowder® which, in addition to being a brand, aims to be a "way" of travelling, where the practice of a sport such as ski mountaineering becomes an excellent "excuse" to travel, a reason to discover distant lands – even better if little frequented – new people, snow and unknown landscapes.
