Beginning of April I had the fortune to guide Urner Haute Route aka Skiers Haute Route. The ski tour starts in Realp/Andermatt and ends in the Engelberg valley after five days of ski touring spending four nights in comfortable mountain huts. This ski tour is for sure one of my favourite ski tours in this part of central […]

Conditions for the Engelberg ski-mountaineering classic Titlis rundtour, have been really good last three weeks. Great weather, nice fluffy snow conditions on altitude and sufficient snow cover all the way down to the valley combined with low avalanche risk, who can ask for more? This alpine route around Titlis has all components to make a great […]

HOW DO I PREPARE FOR A MOUNTAINEERING WEEK?
This is a big question! A simple answer is that you have to do long training sessions, more than 3hours. Preferable a couple of times per week. Mix your training time with both strength training and cardio training. Focus on legs and core muscles for classic mountaineering. Hill hiking is also very recommended. Contact us for more info and help with you training and preparation.
HOW DIFFICULT IS THE CLASSIC SKI-TOUR HAUTE ROUTE BETWEEN CHAMONIX AND ZERMATT?
The traverse between Chamonix and Zermatt is a long ski-tour at high altitude so very good fitness is required for this ski-tour. You also need to be able to ski in different snow conditions and steep slopes. Previous experience of ski-touring is required. We ski in small groups. The reason of keeping the group small is to increase security on steeper ground.
