Ski Mountaineering Tour at Monte Rosa

If you want to engage in ski mountaineering excursions at Monte Rosa the choices are endless. Dolomiti SkiRock offers an interesting tour, a thrilling experience at high altitude, reaching peaks exceeding 4000 meters and skiing along the most beautiful glaciers in the Alps.

The tour lasts two days, with great trekking starting and ending at Breuil-Cervinia and going through the towns of Gressoney on the Italian side, and Zermatt on the Swiss side. With little elevation gain we reach the summit of the Breithorn at 4165 meters and Punta Nifetti at 4554 meters, where the famous Capanna Margherita is located, the highest mountain hut in Europe.

The ski-runs down to the valley are over 2500 meter long and quite beautiful, following along the Cime Bianche towards Gressoney and the Grenz Glacier on the Swiss side. Along the whole run you will be facing one of the most beautiful mountains in the world: the Matterhorn.

This program is recommended to participants who want to reach summits without facing too much elevation gain and want to have fun along endless off-piste runs. 

Program for the Monte Rosa Tour

We meet at Breuil-Cervinia at 6:30 pm; we have dinner and spend the night in a hotel near the lifts.

On the first day of the tour, we reach by lift the Klein Matterhorn that faces the wide Plateau Rosà at 3500 meters. We climb to the summit of the Western Breithorn at 4165 meters, overtaking just an additional 665 meters. Then we drop down to 2597 meters following the Cime Bianche to the small village of Champoluc, located at 1568 meters in the top section of Val d'Ajas in the Valle d'Aosta region. We have dinner and spend the night in a typical hotel in Gressoney.

On the second day, we reach by lift the helipad and with a 10-minute flight we land at Colle del Lys at 4151 meters. With a two hour climb we reach Cima Nifetti and the Capanna Margherita at 4556 meters, with an elevation gain of 405 meters.

The endless descent in excess of 15 km unfolds crossing the Grenz Glacier zigzagging among large séracs and frozen walls reaching the start of the lifts in Zermatt, which take us back again to the Kleine Matterhorn where we follow the ski run down to Cervinia (a descent 3035 meters long).
