Group off-piste skiing for intermediates in Arlberg, St. Anton

Piste To Powder and our guide Florian really showed what a remarkable place St Anton is. Thanks for unforgettable days on the mountain!

Group off-piste skiing for beginners in Arlberg, St. Anton

Myself and a friend spent two days in the Open Level 1 off piste group. We weren't quite sure what to expect as we hadn't done any off piste skiing before. Our guide was keen to show us the basics and took us down increasing routes of difficulty throughout the day which were all very fun! We always felt safe despite being off piste and that our guide was looking out for us, and it really helped us develop our technique. We had two epic days of finding lovely snow away from the pistes despite it not having snowed recently. Thanks so much to Jakob for his time. We'll be back again next year!

Matthias and Flo found amazing powder snow with no people on the busiest week if the year. Zoe did a great job communicating with us to find guides at the last minute.

1+ day Off-piste skiing around Arlberg, St. Anton

I have been to Sankt Anton number of times to chase some off-piste lines and never hired a guide until now. We had two epic days but yet very different. One day of touring and even though the mountains were lacking snow our guide managed to find some fresh untouched lines. The second day was after it had snowed quite bit and we managed to ski untouched powder the whole day without doing any touring. I will definitely hire I guide again the next time I will be in Sankt Anton. Thanks for two epic days and great companionship Flo!

St. Anton, Austria, ski touring (group)

Visited this week with my 15 year old son. Great time. Petra was fabulous. She was patient when we needed a little more time than her, and guided us to terrific runs, found the best snow possible (tough week of snow for St. Anton) and was simply a joy to spend two days with. We hope to return to St Anton, and would absolutely engage Piste to Powder again. If the snow is good, I’m certainly they’ll find the best snow. If the snow is not good, as with this week, it really made our week to have a couple of the days more interesting with off piste skiing with Petra.

Group off-piste skiing for intermediates in Arlberg, St. Anton

We used Piste to Powder for 3 days with a friend. Mauritz O. was an excellent guide, judging the group ski level very well. He worked hard to find us fresh powder that made the trip very memorable. Will definitely be using them again.

1+ day Off-piste skiing around Arlberg, St. Anton

My friend and I (both snowboarders with several backcountry trips under our belt) had a private guide for the day after 150cm+ snowfall and severe avalanche conditions. Our guide Stefan was excellent and very aware of reading the risk levels throughout the day. We got some amazing lines and Stefan was very professional and easy to talk to and guided us away from some of the riskier places. Would definitely recommend to all. We will definitely come back next year. Thank you!

1+ day Off-piste skiing around Arlberg, St. Anton

We had two great off piste days with Florian from piste to powder, as our guide. Florian got the balance just right for our family (including two children aged 14 and 10). We skied some great off piste routes, including some steeper terrain and we also did some fun tree skiing, accessing places we would not have been able to reach on our own without a guide. Two excellent days. I would highly recommend Piste to Powder, and in particular our guide Florian.

Kitzbühel Backcountry ski with a guide

Georg is an extremely knowledgable ski guide who is qualified as both a mountain guide and a top level ski instructor so perfect for getting you going in the off piste or taking the more experienced to a new level. He also speaks perfect English.

4-day traverse in the Silvretta Alps

Renato is a fantastic, knowledgable, entertaining guide. He navigated through the worst white out I have ever experienced with bat-like senses, managed the differing levels of fitness in our group with humour and a deft touch, and was a great companion at dinner. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending him for any tour or guided skiing experience.

4-day traverse in the Silvretta Alps

Etienne is a great guide with plenty of mountain knowledge and experience. He expertly guided the 4 of us across the Silvretta Alps, through conditions both white-out and blue sky, starting at Ischgl and staying in mountain huts in Austria and Switzerland. His passion for the mountains is evident and we felt very safe in his risk adverse hands. Etienne speaks perfect English and has a good sense of humour, which made for good company at the card table in the evenings. I would recommend him to anyone and look forward to touring again with him next year. Andy

4-day traverse in the Silvretta Alps

Renato was a fantastic guide and very professional. He was well prepared and very experienced. We got unlucky and got stuck in some very bad weather one day and he did an amazing job of leading our group out of a bad situation. The Silvretta traverse was a great trip - beautiful mountains and very nice huts to spend the nights. I would definitely recommend both Renato and this tour!

Saalbach, Fieberbrunn Guided Freeride Skiing

We had a wonderful day skiing down to Fiberbrunn with our guide Mathias Leo. He found deep light powder snow. The snow was unexpectedly good considering it had not snowed for many weeks! It is only guides with the best knowledge that can find good conditions long after the last snow fall. The smiles remained on our faces the whole day :) Henrik

4-day traverse in the Silvretta Alps

Our group of six have just returned from a magical four day tour of the Silvretta Traverse. The sun shone, the snow was superb and all the while Renato led us with a mixture humour, patient consideration and under-stated authority. He taught us the key skills of ski touring, including vital avalanche training and other mountaineering craft. Renato was excellent company throughout and I could not recommend him more highly. A true gent of the mountains.

Kitzbühel Backcountry ski with a guide

Really enjoyed a day of off piste with Mathias. We were lift-serviced with some short hikes and traverses and found plenty of fresh powder! If you are honest about what you want, and your group's abilities, then Mathias will create an experience that works!

Kitzbühel Backcountry ski with a guide

Great experience! My only suggestion would be to specify better the equipment needed (e.g. when booking on the website it was mentioned "the guide has all needed safety equipment", but after booking the guide then specified you needed to provide your own skins for the crosscountry walking etc., which was news to us). The rest was perfect!

Saalbach, Fieberbrunn Guided Freeride Skiing

Super day! we skied untracked snow all day. Mathias managed to plan the trip just up to our skill level. And that’s is what you get from a good guide, he have to quickly find the right level for the group. Made the day wery exiting but safe. We did a lot of steep skiing and some steep booting but felt safe all day. We used skins to get the best areas, and some booting with ski on backpack. Recommended to get to the best areas! Our best reviews for Mathias!
