Undoubtedly the worlds most famous ski traverse, the Haute Route takes skiers through the most prestigious ranges of the Alps, crossing the glaciers and high passes between Chamonix (F) and Zermatt (CH). Every year, around 4 skiers undertake this unforgettable one-week traverse between the mountaineering capitals of the Alps.

The introductory sections provide a wealth of practical advice on preparation, strategy and equipment, plus expert tips and a brief history of the traverse, all of which serve to highlight the alpine dimension of the Haute Route. Each stage is then presented in detail through comprehensive route descriptions, profiles of the climbs and descents, sketch maps and photos showing the route to follow.
