Type of Trip
Join me in this 6-day off piste ski course and learn all the secrets you need to enjoy your time on the snow! We will spend a great time in Obertilliach, a gem in East Tyrol in Austria.
With my Piste to Powder program, you will learn how to deal with various snow conditions. Most important, I will teach you in a practical way, with different exercises and movement descriptions. Also, you will learn the right ski technique on the slopes. Then, you will put it into use directly in the terrain.
My goal is that at the end of the course you are able to have fun knowing the right skiing techniques. We will have up to 3 to 4 hour ski training in Obertilliach ski resort, as a preparation for the terrain. Then, the following days, we will go ski touring.
Obertilliach is an idylyc village, surrounded by the peaks of the Lienz Dolomites and the Carnic Alps. It has even served as a filming location for a James Bond movie! We will stay in the comfortable Hepi Lodge. In 20 minutes we will be in the ski area.
The Obertilliach ski resort it’s a great spot for your family also. They can take ski, telemark, snowboard and Nordic ski lessons at the Obertilliach Ski School.
So contact me if you want to improve your off piste skiing skills! I will answer any questions you may have about the program. We will spend a great time in Obertilliach. I also offer a guided ski touring weekend in Lesachtal. You can check it out!

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.
