A 120-km high-alpine spectacle connecting Chamonix and Zermatt, the Haute route is the most famous ski traverse in the Alps, if not the world. But beyond the laurels and the luster, it’s also one of the greatest milestones in a tourer’s career.

Enthusiasts have been making their rounds on the route for over a century, drawn by the promises of impeccable pow, fantastic views, and high-mountain glory. Rushing from refugio to refugio, traversing the tallest sections of Mont Blanc and the Swiss Valais, they slowly climb the ladder to the realm of touring legends.

However, the challenging climbs, changing snow texture, and complex glacial terrain prove too much for many tourers, as over half of them fail to finish the route.
