Guide Book: The Haute Route: Chamonix-Zermatt: A Guide for Skiers and Mountain Walkers
The Haute Route (Chamonix - Zermatt) was first walked in 1861 by members of the Alpine Club, and the first ski traverses were in 1903 and 1911.
Crossing the Haute Route is a unique expedition through the highest mountains of the Alps.
Once the reserve of only the most determined Alpinists, modern equipment, huts and lifts have opened it up to any reasonably fit and competent hillwalker, and in spring to any steady parallel skier.
There are several variations - the Grande Lui and the Italian High Level Route being the hardest and especially recommended to strong parties.
Mountains can be climbed on the way - Mont Blanc 4,807m is the highest in the Alps and will be an objective for many, whether on skis or on foot.
This Haute Route Guidebook covers the Classic Route, six main variations (both for walking and skiing, many additional minor route options, and the main mountains.
- route descriptions and route diagrams
- colour photographs, topo diagrams
