The winter is knocking on the door and before I go all-in to winter mode I want to share little bit of my summer alpine climbing season. It was truly amazing. Normally I start my summer season in late May or early June but this summer I was late! In fact I didn’t start until beginning of […]

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.

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.
