Description

Famous for its skiing, central Switzerland is a haven for skiers the world over. As plentiful as they are stunning and exciting, the slopes throughout the country are spectacular. And on this 2 day trip, I would like to guide you for some great ski touring. However, this trip is not just about enjoying the slopes, it is also about understanding them.

Education is a big part of this adventure. My hope is that by the end of the second day, you will have improved your existing skills, as well as learned some new ones. Moreover, the skills you will learn on this trip will be immediately put into practice on the slopes of central Switzerland.

Throughout the two days, you will learn how to plan and carry out ski tours independently. You will also learn about individual slope assessment and optimal route planning. Furthermore, I will also spend time teaching you about avalanche awareness and safety.

Our exact location will be decided upon a few days prior to the commencement of the trip. That is because I want to pick the best possible spot, and weather and snow conditions in the Alps often change quickly. However, you can rest assured that no matter which spot we visit, you will get to enjoy some of the best slopes in central Switzerland.

In order to participate on this trip, you should have some previous ski touring experience. You should also be in good physical condition.

Are you interested in ice climbing? If so, I can also take you on a full day ice climbing trip in Engelberg, which is also in the Swiss Alps.

Accommodation

There are half-board accommodation options available.

More info

Participants should bring suitable clothing, skis, skins and poles, avalanche transceiver, shovel and probe, sunscreen, goggles and lunch for 2 days.

Meeting point

The meeting point will be announced no later than the Thursday before the tour as we will wait as long as possible to ascertain the best location based on weather and other factors.
