Is This for You

The Haute Route is a great option for skiers or boarders who have a good base of backcountry travel and alpine riding and want to push their fitness and stamina on a week-long adventure. Good fitness is needed as the largest day requires 1400m of climbing over 3000m elevation.  Although lots of the terrain is in the "blue square" run range (intermediate), there are steeper pitches similar to double black terrain at most ski resorts.
