If you mastered the Allalinhorn then you are ready for the Weissmies.
Weissmies literally translated means "white mossâ" in Swiss German dialect in reference to the dramatic covering of the impressive glacier clinging to the peak. After the cable car ride to Hohsaas at 3100m, the ascend leads us below the ice-armoured North West face with its towering seracs and passes through a glacier wonderland before cresting on to the final ridge.
Your efforts will be rewarded with a breathtaking view spanning from the summits of the Bernese Oberland to the Monte Rosa and all the way to the Bernina Massif in the eastern part of Switzerland. The Ticino Lakes and Italy greet you in the distance.
