Description

Ski Mountaineering in the Alps is one of the most thrilling things you can do in the range’s mighty peaks.

On this amazing 3 day advanced level course, I will teach you the high level techniques that are crucial for successful ski mountaineering. And because this course takes place in the Alps, anywhere from France and Italy to Switzerland, you will get to put what you learn into immediate practice.

There are a number of fantastic, and famous, ski spots to choose from on this adventure. Some examples of where we can go include the following.

  • Monte Rosa Massif
  • Mont Blanc Massif
  • Gran Paradiso
  • Piedmont

Some of the main things we will cover during this 3 day course include how to plan multi-day ski mountaineering trips and how to venture on more complex and steeper terrain. You will also learn how to properly navigate with maps, compasses and GPS. Moreover, a big priority on this course will be safety and self-rescue, along with avalanche awareness. This is because the more intense and challenging the trip, the more important safety becomes.

Participants should have previous ski mountaineering experience, proper ski descent technique and be in good physical condition.

It is my goal by the end of this course that you are able to enjoy some of the most exciting and challenging ski mountaineering trips available. So send me a request if you want to have a great time, while learning a tremendous amount of crucial techniques for advanced level ski mountaineering.

I also offer an introductory level 4 day version of this course as well.

Accommodation

There are several comfortable accommodation options in the skiing areas you can choose from that I would be happy to recommend to you.

About the guide

guide profile img

My biggest satisfaction is to explore new places, and share it with a rope-mate. And to do it as a professional is the realization of a dream. At the age of 15, I knew I wanted to become a mountain guide, I wanted to live in the mountains, teach and share my new passion. In 2006 I realized my dream and I became a professional mountain guide. I like sharing my knowledge and experience with my clients, taking a journey that transforms slowly the guide-client relationship in climbing partner and often in friendship. I am not and never will be a lone climber but "a company" 'explorer. My specialty lies certainly in climbing on ice and mixed in the high mountains. With my clients I climbed the most difficult faces in the Alps, explored mountain ranges, traveled between America, Asia, Africa, and Europe.
