DATES 13 - 18 FEBRUARY 2023

  • Duration
  • 4 days ski-touring
  • 2 days travel


In March 2022 we found our ‘new’ favourite ski touring destination; Alpe Devero, in part because of it’s wild and beautiful location and in part because of the wonderful Agriturismo accommodation we found to stay in. Not far from the Simplon Pass Alpe Devero is a step back in time. Romantically you reach the penzione on ski (45 mins from the roadhead) our overnight bags can be carried up by skidoo. The ski touring is ideal for novices and the more adventurous alike, each day there are excellent tours in all directions from the door step. The Agriturismo is family run and the food is absolutely delicious offering the best of local home grown produce from their animals and vegetables all farmed in a sustainable, traditional way.

The ski touring starts (and finishes) each day through beautiful open woodland to reach the lovely ski slopes above and the easily accessible peaks that surround the region. Climbs on skins range between 600-1000m or 2-4hrs. There are a few lifts at Alpe Devero which we may use on one day to for offpiste access - especially if there’s lots of powder skiing to be had.

“This was the second time I skied with Stefano and it’s only getting better! I am a 22 years-old skier in competitive level, and just like the first time, I enjoyed every single moment of my journey…”


“I chose Zenit because of their approach and program. All the other schools I contacted didn’t seem to offer what I needed. Dedicated 1/2 day lesson 1 to 1 reaching.Alex was my teacher, and I felt…”

“My son had an awesome experience. The coaches are all extremely professional, kind, caring, and knowledgeable. Our son got excellent feedback on his skiing and how to improve and he grew hugely in confidence both on and off the piste. We were very impressed by the coaches and by the whole setup. He’s looking forward to training with them again soon. Thank you!”

Switzerland, Trip Advisor


Off-piste safety equipment is necessary for all our freeride skiing lessons. This consists of an avalanche transceiver, shovel and probe. We highly recommend the use of a backpack with an inflatable air bag system to be even safer. We highly recommend the use of ski touring equipment to all our freeride guests to maximize terrain access
To enjoy a freeride lesson, you need to be an advanced skier. You don't have to be an experienced off-piste skier, but you have to be comfortable on all slopes of a ski resort. Skiing off-piste will prove itself more challenging than any type of ski slope.
There are multiple ski hire shops in Saas Fee, we recommend Glacier Sport and guests having lessons with us receive a 10% discount on equipment rental.
If you have booked private lessons our instructors can meet you in a variety of locations in resort such as: Plattjen / Spielboden Gondola station. Alpin Express Gondola station. Kalbermatten - Beginner slopes (Lift ticket office). For our intermediate and advanced skiers we can also meet up on the slopes at the Morenia Restaurant. Children’s group lessons will meet at the Plattjen / Spielboden Gondola station on Monday mornings. Please confirm your meeting point with the office when booking.
Our children’s group lessons are all taught in English. Private lessons can be booked in English, German, French, Dutch and Spanish subject to availability.
We always check that all safety equipment is working perfectly. Skis, bindings, ski touring skins and boots must be checked by the guest prior to the freeride lesson.
