    This 8-day Ötztal splitboarding program in the Austrian Tyrol will take you exploring one of the most amazing spot of the Alps!

    Ötztal is a beautiful 65 kms long valley located in the west of Austria. It divides the Ötztal Alps from the Stubai Alps, in the Austrian Tyrol, close to the border with Italy. This region has an ancient mountaineering history and you can find some of the oldest mountain lodges in the Alps plus some impressive powder slopes to ride!

    So, we’ll be using our skins to cross a great number of glaciers that cover most of the valley. Along the way we’ll be surrounded by impressive peaks such as the Silvretta, the Ortles-Cevedale, the Stubai, the Zillertal and the Lechateler. I can assure you that this combination of features we’ll make this adventure something you won’t easily forget!

    During the program we’ll also climb the Wildspitze (3772 m), which is the highest summit in the Ötztal Alps, from where the views are amazing!

    If you are interested in exploring the Austrian Tyrol while enjoying some amazing powder slopes, please send me a request to make this 8-day Ötztal splitboarding program and let’s organize the trip of your dreams together! And take notice that skiers are also welcomed!

    We enjoyed this trip in the Alps very much!! It was an excellent introduction to mountaineering and the stunning peaks of the Alps massive. Our guide Martin made the full experience a succes; pushing us to the limits, keeping us safe at difficult rocky ascents, but also taking time to enjoy the scenery and the climb. Thanks a lot for the beautiful pictures too!

    This was a great 4-day hut-to-hut ski experience in the Pyrenees. The national park of Aiguestortes is beautiful and we had a lot of snow. Martin is a professional and social guide. He makes sure that the trip takes place from a pleasant and secure way. Due to the weather conditions we couldn\'t do the climb to the Montardo and to the Ratera, but Martin organized some alternatives to enjoy the 4 days. We were an international group and could communicate with Martin in English.
