El tour del Monte Rosa

Freeride Monte Rosa

Monte Rosa Freeride Xperience

From the melting snow and the retiring glaciers on top of the  Monte Rosa massif, rivers formed the well-known valleys of this area. From the Middle Ages people have been building their villages here and today those villages are the famous resorts of Monterosa. Starting from at the feet of the Matterhorn, we find Cervinia and Zermatt, going northeast to Saas Fee, and going southeast to Champoluc, Gressoney, Alagna and Macugnaga.

If you are a skilled skier, you will love this trip! 7 overnight stays in the Monte Rosa region, organized transfers from and to the airport, two experienced guides and a lot of freeride fun! Discover Alagna, Zermatt, Cervinia and Champoluc and ski the belonging areas, enjoy a heli drop at Lys-Joch (4.200m) and days of fun in deep powder, step couloirs and wild nature!
