Haute Route Non-stop (via Verbier) Map

An incredible single push self-propelled route for the iconic and world renowned Haute route from Chamonix to Zermatt. It is possible to connect the road section by bicycle or taxi/bus. Possible deviation includes avoiding dropping down Arolla and continuing over Pigne d'Arolla, I selected this option to restock food, water and to reduce objective risk skiing solo in the night. Note: This route is entirely self-propelled so uses no ski lifts. It would naturally split nicely into three days if preferred.
