Experience the most famous ski tour in the world enjoying the high mountains between Chamonix and Zermatt
You are a very keen ski tourer and have a high level of fitness. You are confident having long days on the mountain ascending 500-1000 meters per day with a backpack of 10kg, and skiing downhill in all types of weather and snow conditions.
In the high mountains between Chamonix and Zermatt.
There are many possible variations - the benefit of going with one of our guided groups is that the guide can change the itinerary based on the weather and where to find the best conditions for the groups level. The classic Verbier route takes 6 day staying in huts such as the Trient, Mont Fort, Plafleuri, Dix, Vignettes or Bertol huts with optional nights in Champex or Arolla rather than on the mountain.
Every package is tailormade to your requirements.

Chamonix is our main base. The ski area itself is vast and spreads all along the valley and across to St Gervais, Megeve and Les Contamines. The variety of skiing on and off piste is well documented and in case you’re tempted to think the accolades are over-effusive we can tell you that they are not.
The town couldn’t be more different from the typical, purpose built French ski resort. It is steeped in both history and the towering mountain scape in which it sits. You don’t have to be an expert to enjoy the place, but it is the adventurous who really benefit from the range of activities available, and that indescribable vibe of being in the ‘home of Alpinism’.
Chamonix is a long established, year-round tourist town that has a large permanent population and hence great access to everything you may need. Spread along a linear valley, there are 5 distinctly different ski domains/resorts and some of Europe’s most renowned ski itineraries.
