Encounter with the eternal ice
Hohsaas (3200 m.a.s.l.) is one of the most beautiful vantage points in the Valais Alps with a breathtaking view of 18 four-thousand-metre peaks and the nearby glaciers. Your tour begins not far from the mountain station. Away from the hustle and bustle of the pistes, you move safely over the magnificent Trift glacier on the mountain guide's rope. Gently ascending you will encounter the deep blue eternal ice at the edge of the crevasses. After about 1½ hours you reach the highest point (approx. 3350 m.a.s.l.). The descent to Hohsaas offers a wonderful powder snow pleasure.
