High Alpine ski crossing, partly on glaciers. Sometimes technically difficult, long and steep climbs and ski runs.
Required Skill and Fitness Level
Skill: You are a good skier; your stem turns are reliable in any snow conditions up to slopes of 35 degrees. You don’t mind switchbacks in exposed terrain and carrying of your skis with crampons.
Fitness: 5 to 7 hour climbs per day plus 2 to 4-hour ski runs.
Meeting point: Interlaken, Schweiz
On the night of the arrival, we will be impressed by THE massive and steep Eiger Northface (Nordwand). This does not look skiable at all! Well, wait until the next morning – we will ascend the Jungfraujoch riding the world famous train. And on top you will realize: this an Eldorado for ambitious ski climbers. Vast glaciers, in deep eroded valleys and prominent peaks shape the other side of the Berner Alps. Our crossing will lead us through almost endless snow fields, steep ravines, and wide saddles.
The path runs from the Jungfraujoch over the Fiescherhorn to the Finsteraarhorn hut. The next day, the first “bang” awaits us: we climb the Finsteraarhorn, the highest mountain in the Bernese Alps with its 4274 m summit height. The next day we continue to the Konkordia hut. It should also be a summit today: we are considering the beautiful ski mountain Weissnollen, or the longer variant over the Wannenhorn.
The finale leads us in the direction of the Hollandia hut and the north-west midday horn. In good conditions we can descend from its summit directly over the steep Anung glacier into the Lötschental.
