Description

The Maira Valley is a wonderful place, and absolutely one of the best ones for splitboarding. Let me guide you across this stunning valley in the Piedmont, Italy. And enjoy 6 days of incredible snow!

The Maira Valley lies in the Piedmont. It is located in the province of Cuneo, in the North West of Italy, and west to the border with France. And it offers endless splitboarding options, for all type of snowboarders.

If you are an intermediate snowboarder, it offers charming and calm areas where you can improve on your skills. But it also has extreme descents for the advanced snowboarders, with altitudes that range from 1,200 to 1,300 meters.

We’ll enjoy the best powder snow, in areas that remain relatively wild. Thus, we’ll stay away from the crowds and the designated spots from the ski resorts. What’s more, the Maira Valley has a very intriguing history. Because of the migration that came in the post-war years, many of the villages in these mountains, are almost completely abandoned. Hence, there is a unique solitude that we’ll experience while venturing across them.

Additionally, the sceneries we’ll get are hypnotizing. There are magnificent peaks, enchanting woods and all the snow we could ask for here!

Moreover, we’ll venture into wild areas, but always close enough to reach the ski resorts and other facilities. A short drive will take us back into civilization, where we’ll enjoy the best italian cuisine and delicious wines.

To join this trip, you need to be in good physical condition, and be able to hike up on snow for 3 to 5 hours daily. Also, you are required to have previous splitboarding experience.

If you have previous experience and wish to join this program, send me a request. I promise it will be a trip you won’t be able to forget!

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 is a great guide,who knows every stone and step on the way to the top. He is a professional guide so that I can only recommend him. If you are planning to climb Matterhorn you should choose him as a guide. Best regards and many success Tobias. I wish you all the best.

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.

I can highly recommend Tobias, he has been a fantastic guide from start to finish, he is very knowledgeable and would quickly answer any questions I had before arrival which was helpful when planning my trip. Upon meeting Tobias had a good chat and explained the plan for the following day and checked through my equipment giving good advice. We climbed the Matterhorn, I felt safe during the entire climb, Tobias seemed to know every rock on the route which proved useful in keeping the climb efficient. We summited and got back down in a good time, all while feeling safe and in good hands. I highly recommend picking Tobias as your guide!
