    This 6-day Graubunden “secret spots” freeride program is meant for those of you looking for the best fresh and virgin powder, away from crowds and totally immerse in nature!

    And the secret to do so is Bergün, a small and traditional municipality in the canton of Graubunden, in Switzerland.

    And if you have never heard of this place… that’s why this is the best kept secret in the Swiss Alps!

    Bergün is a paradise for freeriders! And I have been coming here since 1987, so I know it pretty well. And I’ll be happy to show you the best spots. That’s why I’ve designed a program where will spend one of the nights in a secret mountain hut, away from the civilized world, in the middle of nowhere surrounded by mountains and stars.

    There is only one lift in Bergün, from where we’ll start and then decide where to go based on the snow conditions. There are many possible choices, so we’ll have untouched powder every day! 

    And the ski lift pass includes the possibility of taking a train to reach, in 30 to 50 minutes, many different ski resorts like Davos / Klosters or St Moritz / Pontresina, where we’ll go looking for more powder!

    So the conditions are perfect for to to have the best time! Send me a request and we’ll make this Graubunden “secret spots” freeride program happen for you!

    About the Guide

     
     

    In 1987 I became a certified mountain guide after an intense four-year training program at the Technical University of Munich, thus becoming the first guide from the Netherlands to be IFMGA-certified and probably worldwide one of the first guides not originating from an alpine country. As a guide, I do everything from beginner courses in the Alps to worldwide climbing expeditions to the Seven Summits.

    Based in Switzerland, just a few kilometers from the French town of Chamonix, I offer customized programs, tailor-made for each of my clients. As an alpinist and mountain guide, I’ve participated in many succesful expeditions, including Mt. Everest (north and south sides), Cho Oyu and Shisha Pangma (Tibet), Aconcagua (Argentina), Yerupaja South Face and Huascaran (Peru), Ojos del Salado (Chile), Mt Hunter and Denali (Alaska), Elbrus (Russia) Carstensz Pyramid (West Papoua) and Kilimanjaro (Tanzania). I’ve led two UIAA expeditions for talented young climbers: one in China and one in Pakistan. Both were very successful and led to the opening of some new (and sometimes difficult) routes. I’m always looking for new and challenging ski areas and, in recent years, have specialized in ski safaris and ski touring in the Alps, Morocco, Canada, Chile and Scandinavia. Adventure skiing is my passion since a long time and the challenge is to find the best snow and safe skiing and have fun with the group in a remote location. A father of 2, in my spare time, I like to go skiing, mountain biking and climbing with friends and family.

    Fantastic trip with a great group! Edward made the most of the spring conditions. We were blessed with sunny days - touring in shorts and t-shirts. Beautiful views, skiing over fjords, after great ascents! Long descents, all in all an amazing week!!

    My first proper ski touring trip and I didn’t really know what to expect...it was amazing In every respect. The scenery was stunning and accommodation perfect at MIT FabLab. Haakon looked after us at FabLab and Edward out on the mountain. I felt safe and exhilarated at the same time. The group were diverse with a sense of fun and a common interest in being out on the mountains. It really was a privilege for me to share the week with them. I look forward to another trip next winter. Bob
