    The ski trip into the Norwegian fjords around Romsdalen is a world-class experience.

The meeting of mountains and ocean is truly remarkable.The coastline may very well be the most complicated one in the world. Thousands of fjords ranging from a few hundred meters to over 100 kilometers make up the coast of Norway. After having been there, we saw just enough to realize that the skiing possibilities are just about endless.

    Haute Route Ski Tour 2017

    Chamonix, France to Zermatt, Switzerland

    Apr 10 -- Apr 15

    $2,200.00

    The Haute Route is most likely the single most famous ski traverse in the Alps. Pro Guiding Service has guided this super classic ski tour from Chamonix to Zermatt about 40 times in 5 different variations. We have guided the original route via the Valsorey hut, the "classic route" via Verbier, from Zermatt to Chamonix ending in Courmayeur and variations in between those mentioned. 
    The Haute Route crosses eleven glaciers on its way from Chamonix to Zermatt at an average elevation of 3,000 meters. Depending on the route variation you might end up skiing in three different countries. The Swiss Alpine Club huts (Cabane de Trient,Mont Fort, Prafleuri, Dix and Vignettes) are sophisticated by US standards, the mountains are more alpine in character than anything in the lower 48 states, and packs are small enough to let you enjoy the skiing even at the highest elevations of the trip. Ski touring in such spectacular mountains coupled with the multi-cultural exchange will make this trip a unique experience.
