Ski Touring with a guide in Alagna or where we can find the best conditions
We highly recommend to all our guests to try ski touring at least one day during their holiday. Get away from the crowded pistes and discover the winter environment of The Alps. In Alagna it is possible to have easy access to the glaciers from the top cablecar of Punta Indren. From there we can easily climb with skis and skins one of the many summits of the Monte Rosa Massif.
So you wanted to book a guide for a single day or two? Here’s how it works. Or, alternatively, if you’re looking for a multi-day all-inclusive program like the famous HAUTE ROUTE Chamonix-Zermatt or SPAGHETTI TOUR Monte Rosa or similar, we can offer you that as well. For these programmes, go here….

What Do our Guides do?
All our guides are expert skiers and speak good English. This is what they like to do with you:
- Teach you ski technique and ski touring skills in off-piste always with an intensive daily program.
- Guide you safely in the best runs searching for the best snow… and understanding why it is there!
- Transfer everything they know to you about weather, snow, avalanches.
- Teach basic information about rescue and practice the new techniques in searching in an avalanche.
- Last but not least search for the best food and the best drinks!
A typical day starts as early as you want it to start. To avoid the queues at the lifts we start the safety briefing as early as 7.30 and take the first cable car up. But for a ski Touring day we can also avoid to get the cablecar and choose to be in a quiet place by ourselves. Lunch times are flexible as well and sometimes we can organize a pack lunch.
When getting back in the evening we can take you to the nicest bars in the area to have a beer or two. if you want. It’s your skiing holiday, you tell us how you want us to make it an unforgettable one.

|We highly recommend that you arrange your own personal insurance before undertaking any mountain activity.
You can have a look at your own country EUROP-ASSISTANCE, they normally have an outdoor insurance (Outdoor no problem), or we suggest to register as member of your country Alpine Club (like CAF or CAS or BMC, personal insurance is included and also discounted price at mountain huts. Here you can see the official list). If your country doesn’t have an Alpine Club you can also check out the Britannia Section of Alpenverein, that is now normally open also to non-resident in UK: www.alpenverein.at/britannia/membership/
