Ken explored some alternatives and side trips to the famous Chamonix to Zermatt "Haute Route". 

  • Day 1 -- from Mont Fort (near Verbier) over Rosablanche, then down by the Prafleuri hut, and finally up to the Cabane des Dix hut. 
  • Day 2 -- ski Mont Blanc de Cheilon, then down to the village of Arolla. 
  • Day 3 -- climb to Cabane de Bertol hut, then the Tête Blanche (at the top of the descent to Zermatt), but go back the other way across the Col du Mont Brulé, and down the Arolla Glacier back to the village. 
  • Day 4 -- visit the Saas Fee ski resort, and ski partway up the Allalinhorn.
