Other Destinations:

The Classic Haute Route Ski Mountaineering Tour
This traverse from Chamonix to Zermatt is the most classic traverse in the world. It is the ultimate adventure for every strong skier or snowboard tourer. We cross spectacular scenery on the way to Zermatt, using modern ski transportation systems to gain elevation. We stay in cozy alpine club huts, eat the local food and experience the diversity of Europe’s culture.

Berner Oberland Haute Route Ski Mountaineering Tour
This chain of mountains just got voted as one of the world natural wonders. This 5-day tour will leave you breathless. The three mountains Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau offer a fantastic panorama that you will remember for a lifetime. The tour is only for advanced ski or snowboard mountaineers. After a great train ride, which stops at the Eiger North Face windows, used to access climbs on the famous north face, we exit through a tunnel onto the biggest glacier in Western Europe. From there we will conquer one or two peaks a day, with steep skiing down to nice alpine huts, where we can rest our tired legs, eat and share the days adventures. The tour ends by skiing out to the green valley of Valais at the end of the week.

Crested Butte to Aspen Ski Mountaineering Tour
An awesome American experience using the legendary 10th Mountain Division Hut system. The tour starts in the historic, quaint town of Crested Butte, an untouched old mining town with a very nice atmosphere. Travel from hut to hut, skiing steep shoots and couloirs in the quietness of the Rockies. During this time of the year, the crowds have left the backcountry. You will have the pleasure of total solitude in the backcountry and the huts. You will also be pampered as we cater to your every need. The tour ends in the ghost town, Ashcroft, which offers a distinct contrast to Aspen, where we end the day with shopping and lunch.

The Forbidden Tour – North Cascades
The most classic ski mountaineering tour in the Lower 48! The steep valleys, wild glaciers, pristine countryside and requisite bushwhacking may just make this the most exciting adventure you can do in the United States. We stay in our tents and cook small meals, but the main focus is on the skiing: steep, with lots of big crevasses to navigate as well as good climbing and skiing. If you are very fit and feel like skiing you are in.
