Patrouille des Glaciers

Rosablanche, Switzerland

Push yourself to the limit with the toughest mountaineering race on earth.

The Patrouille des Glaciers (PDG) is a ski mountaineering race organised every two years by the Swiss Armed Forces. Military and civilian teams compete against each other.

It takes place once every two years at the end of April, in the south part of the canton of Valais below the summits of the Pennine Alps.

The 2020 race got cancelled due to Covid-19. Ziba wants to get a team together to complete for the 2022 race. This race is known as one of the toughest mountaineering in the world.

The race has it’s history; the PDG has military origins. During the Second World War, the Swiss army organised a competition to test the abilities of its soldiers.

Ziba members must have alpine experience. By this, it ensures their capability to independently master unexpected situations under extreme conditions in an inhospitable high-alpine environment.

Train to meet the physical, mental and technical requirements of the competition. Be willing to live the PDG spirit towards their team, all participants and organising staff.

What to join and become a Ziba member for this prestigous event?
