Join us in Zermatt for our Spring Ski Touring Week – 9th to 16th April 2016
Zermatt is famous in the world of ski touring for being the end of the ‘Haute Route’ – the iconic ski touring itinerary – and also the start of the gruelling ‘Patrouille des Glaciers‘, an overnight race on skis to Verbier.
But ski touring in Zermatt is not restricted to these major challenges.
Spring Ski Touring Week
Our Spring Ski Touring Week gives you the chance to sample the day ski touring opportunities that Zermatt and its surrounding valleys have to offer.
The group will be based at our Chalet Ulysse, and will be lead by a fully qualified and experienced local mountain guide.
On day one, you will have the chance to test your gear with a gentle introductory tour, starting from Trockner Steg, and ending up at Testa Grigia for lunch at a refuge on the Italian-Swiss boarder.
After that details of the programme will depend on conditions at the time but will include 5 days touring and off-piste skiing with our guide.
Limited places available
There are a maximum of 8 places and these are available on a purely first-come-first-served basis. The price of £1490 per person includes 7 nights serviced accommodation in a shared twin room in Chalet Ulysse, with daily breakfast and a four course dinner with wine on 6 evenings during the week. Also included are all guide fees and local taxes.
Participants need some experience of touring with skins, and should be reasonably confident off-piste skiers. If required, specialist equipment can be rented in Zermatt.
To find out more and to book your place on what promises to be an excellent week, contact our office in Zermatt.
Please note that terms and conditions apply and that travel, the cost of equipment rental and lift passes are extra. You should also have made your own prior arrangements for appropriate insurance.
If you have any additional questions, then give us a call and we can offer advice – this will be an amazing week and we look forward to you joining us.
