Description

Austria is a true paradise for ski touring enthusiasts. Join me on this great 9-day alpine ski traverse from the Zillertal valley in Tyrol to Grossglockner (3798m), the highest peak in the country, and enjoy an amazing ski touring experience.

This unique alpine crossing leads us through fascinating glacial landscapes. We will not only browse great glaciers but also many stunning alpine peaks during these 9 days.

Along the way, we will be staying in different mountain huts and also in hostels. The shelters are varied, guarded and unguarded. Over the days we will be creating our own and amazing Great Alpine Traverse!

This high route is a wonderful opportunity to experience spectacular descents in the heart of the Alps. We will be skiing in a beautiful and original Austrian route, on marked and truly alpine terrain, with changing landscapes and views every day.

This challenging tour is suitable for experienced ski tourers only. It requires a high fitness level as well as confident skiing in all types of snow. It is also recommended being able to master kick turn.

Most summits are over 2500m and slopes can be steep. Our daily altitude difference will be between 800 and 3000 meters. But the mountains are vast and it will always be possible to ski an additional slope!

About the guide

guide profile img

I have been a mountain guide since I was 25 years old. My passion for discovering the mountains of the world has led me to the four corners of the earth. Currently, I am also an instructor at the National School of Skiing and Mountaineering (ENSA).

Each year, I organize different trips. I'm in charge of each trip's organization and I'm sometimes also the guide who leads the group. It could either be me or one of my 4 guide friends, who I have been working with for years.

I have been organizing trips around the world for the past 26 years: Alaska, Antractica, Nepal, Mongolia...Over the years, I have organized trips in more than 30 countries.

In recent years I have had the opportunity to discover:
- Ski traverse in Greenland
- Ski touring in Iran, Lebanon, Mongolia, Argentina, Canada
- Climbing in the Yukon at the Lotus Flower, Jordan, Oman
- The high summits of Sichuan, Kula Kangri in Tibet, Langtang Ri in Nepal

I am currently based in Chamonix and the other 3 guides who work with me live nearby as well. If you are interested in traveling far away or discovering the Mont Blanc massif and other places in the Alps, for climbing, ski touring or ice climbing, please contact me. It will be a pleasure for me to organise a trip that meets your expectations.
