Description

Are you looking for a challenging program where you can learn and train? Then don’t hesitate to join me on this 6-day course in Austria. During this program, we’ll go from the piste to the off-piste terrain. This amazing area in the Alps will allow us to enjoy a fantastic snow terrain. It’s the ideal setting for training!

On day 1, we’ll meet at 5 pm in the hotel, have a trip briefing, and check the equipment. Then, on days 2 and 3, we’ll begin our training on the piste. After that, from day 4 onwards, we’ll move to off-piste terrains and practice what we’ve learned.

The contents of the course include avalanche awareness, off-piste skiing training, and video analysis. If you want to improve your skills and gain off-piste experience, then this course is for you.

Keep in mind that to take part in this program, it’s important to have a good skiing level on the piste. Also, you need to be physically fit.

Would you like to take part in this experience? Then get in touch with me by sending the request to book your place. I’m sure you won’t regret your choice!

Also, you can take a look at this ski mountaineering program that I lead in Gran Paradiso.

Mountain Guide

I am in the mountains all year-round, either guiding a trip or exploring on my own. Mountain guiding is not only my profession and passion but also my inner calling. I am a qualified IFMGA mountain and ski guide.

In 2012, I established my mountaineering school "Mountains" with the motto: Quality guiding on snow, rock and ice. You can count on a low client to guide ratio, reliable gear and high quality programs led by our talented team of guides. We are not adrenaline junkies - we put safety first and strive to meet and exceed all of our clients' needs.

We take great pride in having more than 30% returning clients and would be thrilled to welcome you to our "Mountains" family during your next rock, snow or ice adventure!

The course was intensive and fun! Tal is an incredible teacher and has a very vast knowledge which he shared with the group. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a short adventure in an incredible location.

Great trip that I'll remember forever, Tal did a great job of managing the logistics of a puzzle with many moving pieces! Both leading guides Jeff and Andi were first class and made the trip. Overall, top notch I would be happy to recommend!

There were several hiccoughs with Explore-share dates in the beginning. But, they got resolved quickly with responsive staff. It was a bit confusing at first because different guides would accept the offer and then fall away. So the early process through ES was a bit confusing. With multiple different emails and multiple different proposed guides that seemed to disappear as quickly as they popped up. This is why ES is rated 4 stars. ES is a good idea but just needs to fine tuned. ES offers a great way to get access to guides when you have few contacts. I think it is a good idea and has a future. The staff were fabulous though at reassuring and updating me. Once the booking was confirmed with Tal Niv we had very good communication over a period of a few months. Tal was organised and in touch frequently. There was a mis-communication in the trip dates (human error) but Tal quickly resolved it and managed to secure us Julian Resch who did an excellent job guiding us on an acclimatisation hike up the east ridge of Weissmies. Julian was easy comfortable company and was very professional. He was patient, encouraging and kind. I would recommend Tal and Julian for anyone seeking an adventure. Good luck ES - we will use you again in the future.

An awesome adventure provided by Tal's company. All requirements were met and schedule was adjusted for the changing weather conditions. It was one of the best guided tours I've experienced so far!
