PROGRAM

Starting from Cervinia ski slopes and moving along the border between Italy and Switzerland, we will design a wonderful itinerary, tracing a track on the map which reminds the symbol of infinity. A tour rich in satisfaction and “infinite” beauty!

DAY

Difference in altitude: 400 m (positive gain); 1,800 m (descent gain)
Ascent time: 4-5 hours
Meeting point: Cervinia ticket office for equipment check and a short briefing with the Guide

From Cervinia we will take the cable car to the Plateau Rosa then skinning all the way up to the Breithorn Pass. If the weather permits, we can even climb to the top of the Breithorn. Our route then passes below the Breithorn and Pollux to the Verra Pass from which a long, enjoyable descent over the glacier will lead to the Ferraro Hut where we will be welcomed by Fausta and some fantastic food.
Meal and overnight stay at the hut.

Difference in altitude: 800 m (positive gain); 2,500 m (descent gain)
Ascent time: 5-7 hours

In the morning, we will set off upwards, following the Lys Glacier to the Lysjoch. From there, a particularly long descent will take us over the Grenzgletscher to Furi. The view of the north face of the Lyskamm and the south face of the Dufourspitze is spectacular but the glacier is in constant movement so it is vital that we concentrate and keep our wits about us at all times. From Furi, we will take the cable car to the Guide del Cervino hut on the Plateau Rosa where we will enjoy a meal and stay overnight.

DAY

Difference in altitude: 1,150 m (positive gain); 2,400 m (descent gain)
Ascent time: 6-7 hours

With the ski runs still deserted, we will head down from the Plateau Rosa to Cervinia. From there, we’ll skin our way up to the Colle di Vofrède before traversing to the Colle di Bella Tsa and making our way down to the Prarayer hut in the upper Valpelline.
Meal and overnight stay at the refuge.

Difference in altitude: 1,500 m (positive gain); 500 m (descent gain)
Ascent time: 7-9 hours

We will head back up via the Oren Valley, until we are close to the Nacamuli Hut, then continue to the Col Collon and the Col de l’Eveque. There, it is off with the skis and on with the crampons to climb the exposed ridge of the Becca d’Oren. From our position right on the border between Italy and Switzerland, the views will be breath-taking: from La Singla to Pigne d’Arolla and from the Matterhorn to the Dent d’Herens.
The descent to the Nacamuli Hut is short, but a lot of fun. Meal and overnight stay at the hut.

DAY

Difference in altitude: 900 m (positive gain); 3,800 m (descent gain)
Ascent time: 8-10 hours

The day starts with a climb back up to the Col Collon, followed by the descent of the Haut Glacier d’Arolla. When we arrive below the Col du Mont Brulé, we’ll take off our skis for the 200-m climb to the col itself. The descent from the col takes us into the heart of the Glacier de Tsan from where a long, but relatively easy ascent leads to the Col de Valpelline and incredible views of the Dent d’Herens and the west side of the Matterhorn. At this point, we are faced with the 2,300-m descent to Furi, which will see us negotiating the crevasses of the Stockji Glacier and passing under the north face of the Matterhorn.
We will then head up to the Klein Matterhorn by cable car, before finishing our adventure with a lengthy descent to Cervinia.
