Haute Route Ossola March 2015
The Haute Route Ossola runs along the Swiss – Italian border in the Lepontine Alps to the West of Andermatt - just to the south of the better known Tour Soleil. This club tour, traversing from the Simplon Pass to Val Bedretto, took place 14th – 22nd March 2015. A big dump of snow early in the week meant that a couple of days had to be missed out (taking the bus from the Simplon Hospiz to the Castiglioni hut), but this snow gave excellent powder skiing later in the week. The Italian huts were very friendly, had great food, but were very quiet – we saw very few other skiers.
