Collection of peaks higher than 4.000 m - Monte Rosa area
Monte Rosa area
In the Monte Rosa area, or more accurately in and around the Rifugio Gnifetti, lie several
4.000m summits that are ideal for hiking up to on skis. You can find good ski terrain nearly all the way to the summit! This leaves all but the last couple of vertical meters to be conquered by pick-ax and crampons.
These summits are separated by very little vertical distance. Thus, depending on desire and
fitness, you have the option to “collect” more than one peak higher than 4.000 m in one day!
