Type of Trip
Are you a beginner skier and want to learn how to make safe ski turns? Have you done some ski touring a long time ago and you do not remember the technique anymore? Come to learn new concepts or improve the current ones, in this 3-day ski touring course in High Tatras.
This course is designed to teach all the secrets of ski mountaineering at a theoretical and practical level. I will show you all the necessary techniques to move safely across mountainous winter terrains, like the ones we have here in Slovakia.
As for the itinerary, we will meet on Friday afternoon to have a brief introductory talk and check both the ski and avalanche equipment. On day 2, we will make a first skiing outing to recognize the terrain and have a basic orientation of the field, snow conditions, etc. By the afternoon we will work on the use of the avalanche equipment and we will do some snow stability tests. At night we will plan our next day, during which we will learn much more about ski touring and avalanche safety.
On Sunday we will put into practice everything learned in the best cross-country slopes of the High Tatras. The idea is to give you personalized attention so that you can leave this course with the best tools according to your physical and technical level.
An enriching ski touring weekend under the supervision of a local mountain guide. It’s your chance to become a true skier.

What happens if I need to cancel the trip?
If you decide to cancel, you’ll get a 100% refund (minus fees) if the cancellation is notified up to 60 days before the start of the tour, a 75% refund (minus fees) if you cancel between 59 and 30 days before the start of the tour, and a 50% refund if you cancel between 29 and 21 days before the start of the tour. If you cancel less than 21 days before the first day of the tour, you won’t receive a refund. Take into account, however, that if accommodation, flights or transfers were included in the trip you booked, then a different policy may apply as the guide will be bound by the provider’s cancellation policy.
What happens if the guide cancels the trip because of bad weather/unsuitable conditions?
If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).
What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.
