Zermatt to Verbier

Do you think you're as tough as the Swiss Army?

The Patrouille des Glaciers (PDG) is a historic national and international ski mountaineering race organised by the Swiss army. Considered to be one of the toughest courses in the world, the PDG covers a 57.5 km route at altitudes of up to 3,650 metres between Zermatt and Verbier.

The Zermatt to Verbier challenge is not a race, instead our team will complete this famous alpine traverse at a more achievable pace. The trek will take four days and is fit for confident skiers with ski touring/ski mountaineering experience.

1 in 6 of us will need intensive care in our lifetimes and it is only with the generous support of individuals like our team of mountaineers that we can continue to support the intensive care community so they can continue to look after the sickest of patients in hospitals.

Support our team

We'd love you to sponsor our team as they take on one of the most iconic mountain endurance challenges in the world, pushing themselves both mentally and physically.

Your sponsorship will help the team complete the serious challenge ahead of them as they face the risk of avalanches, the hazards of glacier crossing, freezing temperatures and altitude sickness. 

Sponsorship packages start from £5000, and you can download our pack to find out more about how you can get involved.
