Haute Route Ski Tour

From Chamonix to Zermatt

Summary of the Haute Route Ski Tour

The Haute Route is probably the most well known and undoubtedly the most scenic ski tour in the world. Starting in Chamonix, the High Level Route travels from France into Switzerland through impressive high mountain glaciated terrain staying in catered huts. The final day involves an incredible ski descent under the North Face of the mighty Matterhorn down into Zermatt.

The Haute Route ski tour – is it for me?

The Haute Route is a challenging ski touring journey involving some long ascents and equally some incredibly long descents. Overnights on the route are spent in mountain huts and, ideally, you will have experienced a hut night before. You should have some touring skills and experience; it’s not the time to be learning kick turns! You should be a confident off-piste skier, able to ski in control in most snow conditions. You will be carrying a rucksack containing personal safety equipment, some group equipment and minimum personal gear.
