    Skitouring in the fjords of Norway 2019

    Northern Norway

    Mar 25 -- Mar 30

    $3,380.00

    The ski trip into the Norwegian fjords around Romsdalen is a world-class experience. The lands along the Norwegian Coast have been inhabited for thousands of years and yet a lot of the primeval character of the landscape remains. 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.

  146. Approaching camp near Ripsaw Ridge

    Spearhead Traverse

    BC Coast Range

    Mar 28 -- Mar 31

    $840.00

    Europe has the Haute Route. The Northwest has the Spearhead Traverse. This high alpine ski tour in Garibaldi Provincial Park features everything it takes to become a classic. Easy access, a spectacular setting in the back country of Whistler / Blackcomb ski area, heavily glaciated terrain and even a hut make it a must for anybody who is serious about ski touring. It seems incredible that a ski traverse of such quality and easy access (we take the lift to the top of the Blackcomb ski area) can still offer so much solitude and such a wilderness experience.

The Spearhead Traverse Express follows the same route as the standard Spearhead Express, we just do it a bit faster this time.

    Bernese Alps, Switzerland

    Apr 8 -- Apr 13

    $2,350.00

    Ski touring and ski mountaineering in the Bernese Oberland is the quintessential Swiss Alps experience.

    Valdez Ski Touring Week 2019

    Valdez, Alaska

    Apr 15 -- Apr 20

    $2,400.00

    Valdez is well known for its heli skiing, and the Thompson Pass area is one of our favorite ski mountaineering areas in the U.S. The mountains are wild and spectacular, but surprisingly easy to summit on skis. The snow pack is very maritime and therefore perfect for steeper lines. The fact that we get to stay in the port town of Valdez and enjoy great salmon dinners night after night makes this a uniquely Northwest American experience.

  159. Amazing ski terrain below the Gran Zebru

    Ortler Ski Traverse 2019

    Ortler Range, Italy

    Apr 15 -- Apr 20

    $2,050.00

    A fantastic week of ski touring in the high Italian Alps. We keep returning to the Valfurva Region because of the great combination of ski touring terrain, comfortable huts and Italian hospitality. The Branca and Pizzini huts are famous and the ski touring in this area just south of the Austrian Border is some of the best we have ever experienced.

  160. Haute Route Ski Tour April 15-20

    Haute Route Ski Tour April 15-20

    Apr 15 -- Apr 20

    $2,500.00

    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. Our guides speak french and english. Martin Volken, the founder and head guide of Pro Guiding Service grew up in the Zermatt valley and speaks German, French, Italian and English. Because of Martin's background as a Swiss Mountain guide we have many local connections in the area. Believe us, it makes a difference.
    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.

    The Northwest has the Spearhead Traverse. Easy access, a spectacular setting in the back country of the continent's best ski area, heavily glaciated terrain and even a hut make it a must for anybody who is serious about ski touring. It seems incredible to me that a ski traverse of such quality and easy access (we take the lift to the top of the Blackcomb ski area) can still offer so much solitude and such a wilderness experience.
