Haute Route The classic Chamonix - Zermatt "Plus"

Region: Alpes Valaisannes Est, Alpes Valaisannes Ouest
Country: Suisse
The classic Haute Route offers one of the finest backcountry skiing experiences in the world. Staying in beautiful mountain huts perched on glaciers, each day offers great skiing over astonishingly beautiful glaciers. With the luxury of mountain huts, we travel very light.
Highlight Starting in Chamonix, a ski mountaineer's Mecca, our trip will span into Switzerland finishing in Zermatt. The spring conditions often leave a thick layer of clouds between the towns in the valleys and the high peaks, creating the illusion that of skiing on clouds. The hardest part of the trip for most is descending down into the valley at the end; life is just too good in the high mountains above the clouds. Your guide will assure you the finest technical and cultural experiences. His familiarity with the area and its people will provide you with a safe and complete experience.
