After running trips on the famous Chamonix to Zermatt haute route for nearly 15 years, we decided the time was right to expand our horizons. While the classic Haute route travels through some of the most spectacular scenery on the planet, those looking to satisfy their desires for awesome skiing are often disappointed. The Urner Haute route is one that will satisfy those looking for both great skiing and breathtaking scenery.
The Silvretta Region of Austria, just north of the Ortler region of Italy, and close to the Swiss – Austrian border is another lesser known gem of the Alps. Less glaciated than the Ortler or Haute route, the region has an amazing system of very comfortable huts and a high number of summits that can be skied off of. Much like the Ortler tour, while we do traverse the range, we spend several nights at a few of the huts to focus on skiing instead of just skiing hut to hut.
Join North Cascades Mountain Guides, on what is surely a trip of a lifetime, the fabled European High Route. This is undoubtedly one of the worlds most spectacular ski tours, and with the support of the French and Swiss Alpine Club huts can be comfortably achieved by most advanced skiers.
