Description

Montafon, in the Silvretta Alps of Austria, is famous for the ski possibilities that it offers. I invite you to spend three fun days of freeride ski here!

It's a beautiful valley surrounded by ragged peaks, with endless slopes to discover.

Freeride ski is a great way to explore the hidden corners in Montafon. But you should know that freeride is not for anyone. You do need to have a good skiing level. And most importantly, you have to be eager to try this discipline!

Indeed, skiing down open terrain is a dream come true for many ski lovers. Getting away from the crowd and leaving your mark on fresh powder is a wonderful experience. At the end of a descent, you will look up to see your track and marvel at the seemingly perpendicular wall you just descended.

The terrain is so vast that we will have to ride all day everyday to let you explore at least some of it. And as safety is very important, we will review avalanche safety procedures. Besides, each evening we will analyze videos to help you improve your skills.

Interested in joining me on these exciting 3 days in Montafon? Then don't hesitate to get in touch with me! It will certainly be a pleasure to be your guide. And another amazing destination for freeriding in the Silvretta Alps is Solden, check out my proposal there!

Mountain Guide

I've been skiing and climbing since my early childhood. I graduated in 2005 from the Univerzity of Hradec Kralove with a Master degree at the Faculty of Education. Since then I worked as a history and PE teacher. I was also running an Outdoor sport's club at that time, spending plenty of time climbing, skiing etc. with my students.

In 2009, I became a full time skiing and climbing instructor.

Licences:
2009 – APUL C ski instructor
2010 – APUL B ski instructor
2011 – APUL telemark and snowboard
2012 – ISIA Mark (International ski instructors association)
– MSMT climbing instructor and Mountain leader
2013 – entered the UIAGM mountain guide education
2014 – passed the UIAGM Aspirant exam.
2015 - Succeeded the UIAGM / IFMGA final exam

Spending your holiday with you would be my pleasure. Whether in winter on a ski tour (in Czech Republic or Austria) or in summer among the spectacular sandstone towers.

It will be, with no doubt, a very pleasant experience for all of us. I'm an easygoing, friendly and reliable person with a good sense for responsibility.

Don't hesitate to get in touch with me !

I had a great time and the guide really made me feel like we were friends on a day of climbing. Would do again! Thank you.

This review is not for Jan Novotny, but for Juras Sefl. Unfortunately communication with Explore share was very haphazard, and I got the feeling if I hadn’t established contact a few aus prior to our climbing date, it wouldnt have happened. No contact from jan Novotny who was indisposed and got his friend Juras to fill in last minute. Juras Sefl was excellent, reliable and took excellent care of my first time climbing teenagers who felt safe in his hands and trusted him. I wasn’t so impressed with the head organisation, as I say, communication and organisation was not optimal and I wasn’t sure what kind of service we would get. No communication with the guide. Anyhow, the overall climbing experience with Juras was excellent.

Guide: Jan Hais! What a great ski tour our threesome had in the Giant Mountains in the spring of 2022, with our guide Jan Hais. The weather was great, as was the culture of alpine huts and mountain lore in the land of the giant, Krkonoše. But the trip was really pulled together in such a successful way by the skill of our guide. He was an expert at understanding our needs. We were strong and experienced in some ways, yet less so in others, particularly in the use of alpine touring gear. Jan expertly knew when to give us room to roam, yet to jump into help when we needed it. Excellent! We did seem to fall through the cracks a little in pre-trip communications—not our guide’s fault. However, Jan listened empathetically to our concerns and his professionalism reassured us. Thank you, Jan Hais. Thanks, too, to the team at Explore-Share for reaching out to us over our pre-trip hiccups.
