Collection of summits above 4,000m
In the Monte Rosa area, or more accurately, around Rifugio Gnifetti, lie several 4,000m summits that are ideal for hiking up on skis. You can find good ski terrain nearly all the way to the summit! This leaves all but the last few vertical meters to be conquered with the help of a pick-axe and crampons.
These summits are separated by only a few meters altitude differential, and so you can “collect” several peaks of over 4,000 m in one day – depending on your physical fitness!
