Glaciers, long descents and 4000 meter peaks
Dates: January – Middle of April
This ski touring circuit in the Monte Rosa massif is one of the royal routes in the Alps: wild glaciers, almost endless descents, original mountain villages. A border crossing on a high level.
Sparkling glacier massifs in the sunlight, lots of deep snow. Several four thousand meter peaks. The Monte Rosa mountains in the Valaisan Alps are definitely among the most beautiful in the entire Alpine landscape!
On our 3-day tour with start and end in Zermatt we experience the best of the Italian and Swiss side of this beautiful massif.
The Ski tour Monte Rosa is suitable for fit and experienced ski tourers.

We meet in Zermatt in the morning and take the trains up to the Kleiner Matterhorn. From here we ascend with the skis to our first 4000m high peak, the Breithorn. Now a beautiful first descent awaits us before we ascend to the Castor. The final part is a bit steeper and we ascend with the crampons to the summit.
