The Haute Route – Ski Tour from Chamonix to Zermatt
The ultimate ski classic in the Alps! Stunning combination of breathtaking views, endless glaciers and amazing spring skiing.
The Haute Route (High Road) is the name given to the unique Alpine traverse between Chamonix and Zermatt, crossing the three largest mountain massifs of the Alps – Mont Blanc, Grand Combin and Monte Rosa. It was created as a hiking trail at the end of the 19th century and crossed with ski for the first time in the early 20th century, this is the ultra-classic of the alpine ski tours. Its length is just over 120km and 86 of them we will do on skis. The route goes through over 20 glaciers and numerous passes, including climb of several peaks above 3700 m above sea level.
