Description

This 6-day Ski traverse in the Silvretta Alps is the most traditional ski route in the Austrian Alps.

Because of its perfect weather, amazing slopes and easy to cross mountain passes, the Silvretta Alps have become a mecca for off piste skiers. But the most distinctive characteristic of this area is the amazing mountain huts all over the route.

With all the comfort you could imagine (and more), these are cozy shelters situated in wonderful places. So you'll be skiing through Austria's best slopes and sleeping comfortably in the middle of the mountains. Pretty close to paradise!

For 6 days we'll immerse ourselves in the mountains, enjoying long ski runs and unique scenery. Also, we'll be skiing an average of 4.5 hours a day, so you'll have extra time to take pictures and enjoy the nature. Plus, our ascents won't be too hard, so you'll better enjoy the descents!

So please contact me and specify the number of people in your group or any other special requests. I'll make the arrangements for this 6-day Ski traverse in the Silvretta Alps to be an amazing adventure. 

You can also check out these other ski tours I propose in other European skiing hotspots: 5-day Carros de Foc or 6-day Chamonix-Zermatt.

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.
