Ski mountaineering on Monte Rosa

Dolomiti SkiRock offers a ski mountaineering three-day tour of Monte Rosa, crossing the entire Monte Rosa range from Cervinia and back.

The ski mountaineering on Monte Rosa is set to climb at least two peaks above 4000 meters in elevation, Monte Braithorn at 4165 meters and Punta Gnifetti at 4554 meters, where Capanna Margherita, the highest mountain lodge in Europe, is located.

The long descent on the Grenz Glacier, down to Zermatt, the famous Swiss resort town, makes this ski mountaineering adventure on Monte Rosa extremely beautiful and satisfying for skiing and for enjoying the views as well.
