This 4-day Silvretta Alps traverse is perfect for the intermediate ski tourer. Join me on this expedition and bag some of the most famous peaks in these mountains!

The Silvretta Alps comprise around 70 peaks running along the Austrian-Swiss border. Their backcountry terrain is a favorite among ski tourers from every corner of the world!

If conditions are right, we’ll go for the Piz Buin summit (3312 meters). Even if it’s not the highest in the Silvretta Alps, it is the most popular among skiers and mountaineers.

This 4-day ski tour starts and finishes in Ischgl, Austria. Along the way, we’ll stay in the best mountain huts in the Alps. We’ll be greeted with great food, hot showers and lots of beer!

A maximum of 4 people can take this Silvretta Alps ski tour together. So get a group together and come enjoy the wonders these magnificent mountains have to offer! Also, an intermediate ski touring ability is a pre-requisite for the expedition.

Still not convinced? Read about the amazing experience of a group of friends who went on this hut-to-hut ski tour on February.

I also offer several other ski touring programs. If you are ready for an even more demanding expedition, be sure to check out my Classic ski tour from Chamonix to Zermatt and travel the famous Haute Route.

So contact me if you have any questions about this Silvretta Alps traverse or any of my programs. I look forward to a fun week of ski touring together!

About the Guide

 
 

I was born in 1961, I live in Campitello di Fassa, in the Dolomites, together with my family. I have two sons, one is a mountain guide, the other is a ski instructor. I am a certified mountain guide since 1982, an instructor of guides, alpine ski instructor and a Federal coach for ISEF.

Being in the mountains has always been my passion, guiding people, teaching them climbing, mountaineering... during the various seasons of the year. I very much enjoy drawing nice curves in fresh powder snow and discover the charm of the frozen waterfalls.

My curriculum and professional mountaineering is made of many ascents and some openings of routes in the Dolomites and the Alps. I climbed in Yosemite Valley (California), Ben Nevis (Scotland) and Norway, Greece, Spain and Sardinia. I did also several high altitude climbs like Mt Denali (Alaska), Ama Dablam (6828m), Cho Oyu (8201m), Manaslu (8163m), Shivling in India (6545m), Cotopaxi and Chimborazo in Ecuador (5897m and 6310m), Patagonia (Argentina).

Feel free to get in touch with me if you are coming in the Dolomites for skiing (alpine, freeride and ski touring), rock climbing, sport climbing and multi pitch climbing. It will be my pleasure to guide you here and let you discover my secret spots.

What People are Saying about Renato Bernard

  • 3 reviews

 

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

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!

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.
