Spaghetti Tour Monte Rosa


The famous Spaghetti Tour is a beautiful trip around the main Massif of Monte Rosa, reaching some of the pretty villages and valleys and drawing ski tracks on the big, long glaciers. We start from Alagna Valley and we stay in Zermatt for a couple of nights to be able to do the best glacier runs of these mountains, with the big Matterhorn East face looking at us. Most of the Tour is done at altitude so would be good if you are acclimatized. Otherwise please let us know because the program can be flexible and your guide will adapt it to the level and the skills of the Group. Everyone will enjoy, but careful: You need to like Pasta, Spaghetti… and good Italian wine!

Day by day program Spaghetti Tour Monte Rosa “classic”:

1st day: Spaghetti tour normally starts with a day of warming up in the MonterosaSki Resort, where we will do a combination of off-piste skiing and a small climb with the skins, we check the ski and safety gear, and we re-balance on the skis. We stay over night in Locanda Margherita B&B in Rassa, close to Alagna or at Capanna Gnifetti that we can reach in the afternoon with 1 and 1/2 hour climb with skins. With this second option we can make a 2nd day shorter.

2nd day: Climb up to Colle del Lys in the middle of Monte Rosa Massif and ski down to Zermatt, spaghetti will be too expensive and overcooked, so we’ll have a good dinner at the Walliserkanne Restaurant with the typical Fondue or at the Hotel Derby with some good Italian food. Night at the Hotel Derby.

3rd day: With the cablecar we reach the KleineMatterhorn, we traverse and climb up to Colle della Porta Nera and we do one of the best runs on the Glacier back to Zermatt, cablecar again with the same pass and we get to the Rifugio delle Guide del Cervino, where we stay for the night after a big plate of spaghetti.

4th day: Early start to reach the Gobba di Rollen and the summit of Breithorn and Pollux (or only one of them) and ski down to the Rifugio Guide della Val d’Ayas: some of the best spaghetti of the tour!

5th day: Climb up to the summit of Castore, from there we will ski down to the Rifugio Quintino Sella, may be this evening will be Lasagne instead…

6th day: Climb up to Punta del Naso del Lyskamm and ski down all the way to Alagna.

This is the “classic” program but other options are available and we can also tailor a program to suit you.
For example some of the variations can be: sleeping in mountain Huts closer to the bottom or in the Valleys, using more the lifts, do it in 4 days instead of 5…. Also we can adapt the program to the weather and the itinerary is not strict, can be very flexible and for all levels of skier…

All of these programs must be booked in advance in order to secure hotel and hut accomadation.
