Description

Combine the fun of skiing and the thrill of mountaineering and you get ski mountaineering. A fantastic activity that is as physically demanding as it is immensely enjoyable, there is nothing quite like it. And on this 4 day introductory level course, I would like to teach you the skills and techniques necessary to ski toyr properly and safely. Furthermore, because this course takes place in the extravagant Alps mountain range, you will also get 4 days of amazing views as well.

Since this is an introductory level course, you do not need to be a ski expert. However, you should have some previous ski experience on black level slopes. A good physical shape is also required.

There are several options throughout the Alps we can choose from as to where to take the course. Those options span between FranceItaly and Switzerland.

With 4 days to work with, you will have the chance to learn a great deal about ski mountaineering. We will cover descent technique with light equipment and safety techniques. We will also cover self rescue, avalanche terrain identification, and much more throughout the course.

By the end of this trip, I have no doubt you will be better prepared for future ski mountaineering expeditions.  So send me a request, come to the Alps, and let me teach you how enjoy them in the most exciting way.

Are you interested in learning how to how to ski down powdery steep slopes in the high mountains? Then come and join me on freeride skiing trip in the Aosta Valley.

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.
