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.
An international ski mountaineering's classic tour, that circumnavigates the Monviso, the "Re di Pietra" of the Cuneo Alps. The great rocky pyramid changes its appearance hour by hour during the path, moving from the severe shadows projected by the north wall, to the beautiful Alevè Wood's slopes, showing finally the vast and boundless panorama of Punta Losetta and Meidassa.
Doing ski mountaineering in Abruzzo, placed halfway between Rome and the Adriatic Sea, might sound strange; but the vast, isolated and little-frequented mountains, the infinite spaces with the sea view and the hospitality of this Italian region will literally make you falling in love! The shapely Majella mountains do not reach the grandeur of the Alps but they are offering everything that a demanding and complete ski mountaineer is looking for: large differences in altitude, steep slopes, couloirs, but also gentle and funny excursions with moderate slopes and a satisfying sea view once reaching the top. In short, pure fun! The biodiversity and pristine environments of these mountains are protected by the Majella National Park. They are home to a typical wildlife which is often visible even nearby the villages: the Abruzzo wolf and the Marsican bear add charm to a unique environment. The cherry on top of this ski mountaineering journey is the typical cuisine that offers simple and genuine dishes with excellent wines! A real 5 star trip!
A ski mountaineering trip that ideally retraces the historical Cuneo Nizza, a railway line made famous by its numerous tunnels, a route that crosses steep Alpine slopes and marks the transition from the cool Cuneo valleys – covered with snow until late in the season – to the charming Cote d'Azur, with mountains that gently descends towards the sea and to the nearby Provence so close with its lavender scents.
