Zermatt Adventure (off-piste skiing / intro. to touring / backcountry skiing)

What better way to discover the region than 6 days of off-piste tours and glacier descents. Each day we will make use of the valley’s extensive lift system, together with touring kit to pack more skiing into our off-piste adventures.

Who’s it for: for skiers with a sense of adventure who want to access the mountains as soon as possible.

A Typical Week
We hope to keep these holidays flexible in order to make the most of the conditions but the plan is as follows:

Day 0 Sat  The first evening we will meet in Zermatt to discuss the week and sort out equipment.
Day 1 Sun  A chance to find our ski legs on the glaciers above Zermatt and discuss avalanche awareness and safety procedures.
Day 2-6 Mon-Fri
A stunning week of day tours ,off piste skiing and majestic glacier descents. We aim to spend 1 night in a mountain hut which will allow us to access some of the best and longest glacier runs in Europe.
Day 7 Sat  Say our farewells and depart

Dates: January and April 2012

Price: From £280 per day guide only.
