Description

Are you ready to experience an amazing 5-day adventure in the Alps? Then come join me on this ski touring trip in the Western Oberland!

The Western Oberland is one of the most perfect spots for ski touring in  Switzerland. Because it’s set in a quiet corner of the Alps with excellent weather conditions, it offers great quality snow. Plus it has a variety of slopes for every skiing level. It also offers easy access from Geneva and other towns in the area.

My plan is to meet up with you at Les Diablerets ski area where we’ll do a quick gear check and hit the slopes to evaluate your skiing level and practice some avalanche security methods like transceiver search. Then, during the next 4 days we’ll go from one mountain hut to another, while we enjoy deep powder descents and breathtaking views. Also, along the way, we’ll have the chance to summit peaks like Les Diablerets (3041 m), Wildhorn (3247 m), Schnidehore (3297 m) and Wildstrubel (3243 m). 

This 5-day ski touring trip in the Western Oberland is a great way to discover these beautiful mountains. So send me a request now and we’ll start organizing your trip!
