I invite you to join me on a 1-day basic avalanche course in Lesachtal. If you are regularly in contact with avalanche terrain, this is the perfect program for you. I will give you the theory, but most important, we will put the information in use!

During this day we will cover key topics, like companion rescue and individual and multiple burial search. Most important, I will also explain  the use of LVS device, avalanche probe and scoop.

We will meet at the Hepi Lodge, in Obergail, in the Lesachtal Valley. Then, after a brief Power Point presentation, I will develop the theoretical information on companion rescue. Most important, we will put it in practice with various excercises, of individual and multiple burial search.

You will also learn  how to properly handle your LVS device.  Also, we will talk about group coordination.

Then, we will go on a short ski tour in the direction of Gamskofel. We will carry out other avalanche scenarios for companion rescue. So, this won't be a typical ski tour, but the practice of what we have just learnt. Also, the use of LVS device for a "fast" search.

So contact me if you want to join me on this avalanche course. I will be happy to answer any questions you may have about the program.

I also offer a 1-day ski tour for advanced skiers in Lesachtal. Check it out!

Mountain Guide

I’m a IFMGA certified mountain guide and a nature lover. I was born in 1983 and I studied Cultural and social anthropology at the Vienna University.

Mountains, water, cultures have been always my passion. That’s why I’m a mountain, ski, canyoning and rafting guide, also a ski instructor and a snowboard enthusiast.

Helene and myself are the owners of the Hepi lodge. A space for mountaineers, climbers, skiing enthusiasts where besides offering the accommodation service we proposed varied programmes of different activities: rock climbing, ski touring, canyoning, hiking tours.

I guide most of my time in Lesachtal Valley: St Lorenzen, St Jakob, Birnbaum, Karnische Alps and Lienz Dolomites.

I love guiding people from all around the world and help them discover my region and its beauties doing what they like most! Feel free to contact me to discuss about your expectations and what I can offer you. We will share a great time together!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



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.
