Trip Planning Questions

Are you able to take two to three weeks off in March, 2022?

How flexible with dates/objectives are you?

Do you have glacier travel/mountaineering experience?

Do you have mountain first aid?

Are you confident in your ability to read a continental snowpack and assess avalanche risk there?

Do you speak French?

Would you be willing to hire a guide if the group thought it was important to do so?

What do you think this kind of adventure will cost? OK now double it. Can you save up that much money?

Have you ever gone on an international ski trip?

Participant Information

I will be in France next year and would like to undertake the Haute Route from Chamonix to Zermatt. I understand that Covid has put international travel on hold for the moment, but I'm hoping that by then it will be a different story. 

We would ideally be available for two or three weeks in March in order to get the right weather window. We should also be able to meet between now (Feb) and April/May 2021 to do some skiing and get to know the group members, practice some essential skills, and establish a rapport. 

As for me, I am a fluent French speaker who will be in the country as of July 2021. I have six years of ski touring experience here in BC. My mom says I'm cool.
