Austria offers some of the best skiing in the world and has a famous ski lift system that will allow us to reach amazing spots. Furthermore, there is a wide variety of options for almost all weathers, which is one of many reasons why it’s one of our favorite ski locations. On this adventure, we will make the most of that variety and have great flexibility as we will be traveling and living in our camper vans.

Throughout the 5 days that we spend together, we will have the chance to work on the following topics that will enhance our big mountain and powder experiences:

  • Avalanche safety

  • First aid theory and practice

  • Group behavior in avalanche zones

  • Understanding of outdoor risks

  • Big mountain safety

  • Day planning (avalanche risks, group skills, and level)

  • Descent and ascent line selection

  • Ski and snowboard technique coaching

  • Video analysis

  • Skinning and climbing technique

  • Crampons and ice ax skills

  • Equipment

  • Rock Climbing skills (abseiling, knots, equipment)

  • Personalized coaching to break through mental barriers

To join, you don’t need prior freeride or backcountry skiing and snowboarding experience. However, being confident riding on black slopes is a must. All genders are welcome and the minimum age to join is 15. Keep in mind that you will have to be physically fit as well, as this is an intense skiing adventure.

About the guide

Snowbusters is a skiing and snowboarding community of guides and coaches that have grown out of a genuine passion for gliding snow on any possible terrain, at different locations around the world. We love and live what we do. That’s why we don’t just sell skiing or snowboarding holidays. We don’t just provide instructors and guides.

Our aim goes far beyond that. We strive to introduce people who decide to join us to the whole culture behind what we love to do most in our lives. We try hard to maintain the motivation high. Our lifelong dedication is the best proof that we are good at it. We know what it gets to internalize the right habits that will lead to continuous progress.

We are a community of equally passionate skiers, snowboarders, and mountaineers. Having different educational and professional backgrounds, we provide complex and revealing insights into skiing and snowboarding in its various forms, as well as into skiing and snowboarding lifestyles. Ours have been crafted in a way that allows for as much riding as possible. We have a lifelong affair with the sport and are able to employ multiple approaches to passing on the necessary skills that will help you become a better skier or snowboarder.

In our view, growing up as a skier or snowboarder entails growing up as a person. We live and work in natural environments, and an important part of what we do is sharing our positive attitude towards nature. We promote partnership and respect to all living and non-living elements of our world. At the start of the new year, we will be joining the 1% For The Planet project.

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.

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.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
