Description

Improve your mountaineering skills during this 2-day glacier travel course in the beautiful Steingletscher in the heart of Switzerland!

Stein Glacier, known in German as Steingletscher,  is centrally located in the Swiss canton of Bern in the Uri Alps mountain range. With an area of about 8 kilometers squared, there is plenty of terrain for us to learn and practice basic glacier travel skills that are important for any aspiring mountaineer to master. Our two days together will serve as great preparation for future mountaineering objectives in the Alps and beyond.

This gorgeous glacier towers with above a beautiful green valley surrounded by craggy peaks. The glacier’s tongues sit at about 2,000 – 3,000 meters, winding down to a lovely glacial lagoon that creates an ideal Swiss landscape in the heart of the Alps. The area is a paradise for those outdoor adventurers who love to rock climb, hike, and ascend alpine mountain terrain.

Book now for a fun and informative 2 days practicing key glacier travel skills on Stein Glacier, a perfect area near Bern in the Swiss Alps!

I offer other programs in the Swiss Alps: Alpine Training Weekend in Alpstein, Trekking and mixed climbing, 1-day Deep snow ski touring course in central Switzerland, or Sihlhölzli, Zurich, Crevasse Rescue Course!
