Ticino is the name of a nice mountain zone located between Switzerland and Italy, limited by the Simplon pass on its west side and saint Gothard pass on the east side. It is very wild and not so many people knows that skiing there is absolutely gorgeous. The average height is around 2900, so quite easy to manage regarding skinning, even if during the trip we will go over 3000m. Some bowls are incredibly perfect for a good freeride session, the huts are very comfortable ( hey, italian style !!). You can feel the lonelyness amongst the peaks, it is why this ski tour is one of my favorites. From the Simplon pass we will ski in the Binntal area, skinning in the beautiful Val Formazza and skiing on the Basodino glacier before coming back via the Nufenenpas. Over winters i saw that the snow is often very deep there, so all n all if you were to come you won't be disapointed !!
