This Chamonix Zermatt Haute Route requires you to have all day hiking fitness, and capable of maintaining moderate output all day long (7-10hrs).

You will be skiing with a pack (~20lbs.) for the duration of the program. If you haven't skied with a pack before, it does take some getting used to. Getting out for some practice before the trip will give you an idea of what to expect and how to adjust your technique.
