Highlights

 
     

    I invite you to join me in an exciting ski touring day in the impressive Kitzsteinhorn (3203 m)! This glaciated mountain is located in the High Tauern range of the Central Eastern Alps in Austria. It is Salzburg’s only glacier ski resort. And, most important, it is a paradise for freeride skiers!

    Besides, there will be no ascent for us, just a 2000 hm descent! But the Kitzsteinhorn certainly has much more to offer than freeride runs. Also, we will experience spectacular variations that will lead us down to the Muhlbach Valley! And we will ski through perfect sloping slopes. Then, past the Schaunberg Alm, we will follow the forest road to Niedernsill.

    Pleas, be aware that you need experience in skiing off the slopes in order to join this tour.

    We will meet at the valley station of the Kaprun glacier railways. After a couple of warming up runs, we will head towards Mühlbachtal. Depending on the snow conditions, we will choose one of the three variants from Kitzsteinhorn into the Mühlbach Valley.

    So, what are you waiting for? Contact me if you want to discover the other side of the Kitzsteinhorn! I will be happy to answer any questions you may have about the program,

    I also offer a 1-day ski touring tour to the Stubacher Sonnblick summit. Check it out!

    About the Guide

     
     

    The mountains have always been a great part of my life. I was a youth leader of the Alpine Association of Zell am See, Bergrettungsmann, and completed the training as a ski and snowboard instructor. I studied meteorology because it can be very useful in mountaineering. My first trips took me to the Eastern Alps, around Piz Bernina and Biancogray. I also had the chance many times the amazing Mont Blanc range and the peaks around Chamonix. Finally, I got to practice in the high mountains of Bolivia and Chile.
    I have really found my calling as a mountain guide. I am right where I always wanted to be. The smile on my clients' faces at the summit or after an intense ski day is so rewarding!
    I am part of a team of local guides (Bergführer Zell am See Kaprun), all friends of mine, guys with whom I share the passion for the mountains. They are Markus B, Markus H and Gerald, all IFMGA certified guides. Our philosophy is "to know how to do something well is to enjoy it". Therefore, we always keep learning to give you the best experience.
