Description

Join me on this fantastic ski touring week through the Haute Route. We will spend 7-unforgettable days in one of the most legendary ski touring expeditions in the Alps!

The Haute Route links two prestigious capitals of mountaineering: Chamonix, in France, and Zermatt, in Switzerland. It will take us from western Europe’s highest peak, the Mont Blanc, to one of the world’s most famous mountains, the Matterhorn.

Along the way, we will discover the beauty and magnificence of more than 20 glaciers, countless slopes and ever changing landscapes.

The path will take us through steep climbs, narrow ridges and wild glaciers. Sometimes, it will seem as if the route would not go any longer, or as if our path had an abrupt end. Then, we will find a breathtaking steep descent! Also, we will lide on wide slopes, surrounded by one of the most amazing views of the Alps.

Contact me if you want to live the Haute Route experience! We can start planning the perfect program for you. It will be an unforgettable trip!

You can also check my ski touring week in the Lyngen Alps, in Norway. It's also an amazing program!

Mountain Guide

I am a IFMGA certified mountain guide and I'm passionated about nature. I was born in 1977 and before entering in the mountain life, I worked as a teacher in Borg Lienz.

I started training as a canyoning guide 15 years ago. Since 2009, I have also trained with canyoning leaders in Carinthia. Additionally, I have been on the road as a mountain and ski instructor. During the summers, I have guided a lot in Switzerland, where I took my guests to many mountains over 4000 meters high. My “motto” in the mountains and in life has always been the same: “Never stop exploring”

I work now for Carnicoalpin where our main objective is leading and accompanying you on steep mountains and great ski slopes with a particular focus set on safety.

For more information, please feel free to contact me. We can discuss about your wishes and the different options I offer. I will be really happy to be your guide and share a great moment with you!

Tobias was great! Professional and nice, he brings a lot of good energy to the experience. He does indeed know every rock on the Matterhorn, truly impressive! This was my first time using explore-share, and it was pretty good. 4 stars to them. If they can improve communication and make the website a little more user friendly I think it would be a 5. All told it was a great experience, and I will definitely use them again and have already recommended Tobias to a friend.

Tobias is a great mountain guide! He’s really nice, and he knew the Hörnligrad on the Matterhorn really well. I also felt safe climbing with him. The weather worked out great for me when I climbed the Matterhorn, but if it didn’t, the back ups Tobias does are awesome climbs too. He’s also willing to try bending his schedule to accommodate for weather if needed.
