Description

When it comes to mountaineering, you can never learn enough, nor should you want to. That is the joy, the adventure of mountaineering, that no matter how long you have been doing it, there is always more you can learn, new skills and techniques you can acquire. As a result, I am happy to offer this 2-day mountaineering refresher course in the sensational Aosta Valley.

Located in the Alps of Italy, the Aosta Valley is famous with mountaineers from around the world. And, after a single look at this marvelous area it is easy to see why. From the amazing peaks to the vast natural landscape, the valley really is a paradise.

Some examples of what we will go over during this course includes equipment usage, how to walk on a glacier, how to tie yourself, crevasse rescue, snow and ice anchoring, climbing techniques, abseiling and much more.

While this course is open to people of varying skill levels, it is important that all participants are in good physical condition.

When it comes to amazing places to explore and enjoy some of the best peaks in the world, you can’t do much better than the Aosta Valley. However, it is important to learn how to enjoy those peaks properly and safely. Hence why this course can be so helpful. To experience the course for yourself, all you have to do is send a request.

About the guide

I was born in 1981 and live in the Aosta Valley, surrounded by the wonderful peaks of my region.

I started guiding in 2016.

I like all mountain activities: freeride skiing and ice climbing in winter, ski mountaineering in spring, mountaineering in the high mountain in summer and rock climbing whenever possible!

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
