Highlights

 
  • Learn important basic ice climbing techniques during this 2 day course.

  • Scale ice falls in the beautiful Aosta valley.

  • Admire the stunning Alps of Italy.

 

Famous for its amazing views and ski resorts, the Aosta valley of Italy is a great place to visit, explore and enjoy. And on this 2 day trip, I would like to guide you on a basic level course on ice climbing.

In the Aosta valley, there are a wonderful variety of ice falls that you can climb. And during this 2 day course, we will pick the best ones for you. And on those ice falls, I will teach you the important basic skills that are necessary for safe and successful ice climbing.

Because of the arduous and unpredictable nature of frozen waterfalls, it is important for anybody who wants to climb them to know how to do it properly. That is why a course like this is so important. And you can rest assured throughout this course I will be constantly offering you tips and advice to help you improve as an ice climber.

To participate on this trip you should be in good enough physical condition to scale the chosen ice falls.

The Aosta valley is a gorgeous place. Surrounded by the sensational Alps mountain range, it is astounding to behold. And admiring it while making your way up a frozen waterfall only adds to the wonder of the experience. To join me on this 2 day course, just send me a request.

For the first weekend of this course, which takes place in Piedmont, come and join me here.

About the Guide

 
 

Aspirant IFMGA/UIAGM Mountain Guide
My name is Marco Bigatti, nicknamed “Il Biga”. I was born in Milan, I started climbing in 2006 and since then I have not been able to tear myself away from the vertical world. I turned my passion into a job, becoming Mountain Guide in October 2017, the first mountain guide that lives all the year in Sardinia.
I experience the mountains from a 360-degree point of view. I have practiced all disciplines of climbing in the Alps: rock climbing, alpinism, ice climbing , as well as ski mountaineering.

In addition to alpinism, I love pure sport climbing, seeking out the best climbing sectors throughout the entire Alpine range. But it was in Sardinia that I found a paradise of crags, in particular in the south-west of the island, where you are able to enjoy all types of climbing throughout the year.
I offer climbing day or trips for beginners or experienced climbers who need a guide, multipitch packages for those who want to live an alpine experience, climbing courses, all-inclusive climbing holiday with accommodation in our nice B&B by the sea, guided trekking and mountain biking tours.
