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.

We are building a team for 2024, places are limited and you will need:

  • Relevant experience
  • To commit to a year of regular training
  • To fundraise for the Intensive Care Society
  • To help source sponsorship including corporate sponsors (we'll provide you with packs to help with this)
