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.

This was a great trip and Explore Share made finding the right trip super easy. Our guide was personable, extremely knowledgeable, and experienced and willing to teach us the skills we would have needed to climb the Matterhorn. Unfortunatly, the conditions were not right to climb so our guide recemmended another trip which was still a great experience and lots of fun.

Very user friendly platform with timely responses from Explore Share representatives. The trip itself with Tom from Alps Adventures was awesome and ensure that we had an experience that was 100% what we wanted. Recommend both the platform and the guide. Thanks to all for arranging and delivering so well.

I had am amazing time during the 1-day off-piste training course at Hoch-Ybrig. Urs, our main mountain guide, was very helpful in answering my queries before the course, and Lupe from explore-share was helpful in selecting the course. We had 3 groups under Urs, Mario and Patrick, and I was in the group with Patrick. He gave us a lot of nice tips and individualized video analysis. He made a special effort to convey everything in English, since I don't know German. All the participants were very helpful and friendly too! The course is good value for money as skis are included for the weekend in the course price.
