Ski mountaineering is a thrilling activity. It can also be a challenging one. As a result, it is important to know how to do it properly. Thus ensuring an experience that will be as safe as it will be fun. And on this 4-day basic ski mountaineering course, we will cover a great deal of the skills and techniques necessary for successful ski mountaineering. Furthermore, this course will take place in the gorgeous Aosta Valley in the Alps of Italy.

Some of what we will cover during this course includes how to ski safely on snow-covered terrain, as well as ascending and descending techniques. We will also cover material usage, how to create an itinerary, nivology, self-rescue in snowy environments and more.

Within the Aosta Valley, there is an assortment of magnificent spots where you can not only learn, but enjoy great ski mountaineering. Those spots include the Alpe Devero, Sempione, Val Bedretto, Val Formazza and Valsesia. Each one of these spots will provide you with great views, slopes and chances to practice what you’ve learned.

This course takes place over 4 consecutive Saturdays in the winter season. Hence giving you plenty of time to reflect on and study what you’ve learned the previous Saturday in time for the following Saturday.

To join me on this 4-day ski mountaineering course, all you have to do is send me a request. I look forward to hearing from you and guiding you.

About the Guide


Aspirant IFMGA/UIAGM Mountain Guide
My name is Marco Bigatti, nicknamed “Il Biga”. I was born in Milan, I started climbing in 2006 and since then I have not been able to tear myself away from the vertical world. I turned my passion into a job, becoming Mountain Guide in October 2017, the first mountain guide that lives all the year in Sardinia.
I experience the mountains from a 360-degree point of view. I have practiced all disciplines of climbing in the Alps: rock climbing, alpinism, ice climbing , as well as ski mountaineering.

In addition to alpinism, I love pure sport climbing, seeking out the best climbing sectors throughout the entire Alpine range. But it was in Sardinia that I found a paradise of crags, in particular in the south-west of the island, where you are able to enjoy all types of climbing throughout the year.
I offer climbing day or trips for beginners or experienced climbers who need a guide, multipitch packages for those who want to live an alpine experience, climbing courses, all-inclusive climbing holiday with accommodation in our nice B&B by the sea, guided trekking and mountain biking tours.
