The Haute Route route between the two historic mountain
centres of Chamonix and Zermatt stretches for 114 miles
and there is between 13,000m to 14,000m of ascent and
descent taking you through some of the most famous landscapes
in the Alps.
This course is ideal for those seeking a challenging
ski tour, with the opportunity to use some mountaineering
techniques, such as an ascent on crampons or an abseil.
All roped techniques will be taught during the week,
so don't worry if you are a ropework virgin!
