011 Aaron Rolph: Ski Touring the Haute Route in 31 Hours
Play • 35 min

Aaron Rolph recounts his recent solo attempt to ski the Haute route non-stop which he completed in one self-propelled, sleepless push in only 31 hours! The route from Chamonix to Zermatt is usually skied over a week and covers a distance of 125km and climbing almost 8,000m in ascent. In doing so, he became the first person in the world to complete the popular Verbier route in a single push, proving that "normal skiers" can achieve the extraordinary if they just set their mind to it. Aaron recalls what it's like to ski alone through the night, his experience filming extreme sports documentaries, and country appreciation.

Aaron Rolph is a full-time adventure athlete and photographer based between London and the French Alps.
