Description

The Oetztal Alps, in Austria, spread widely across the Tyrol. They are a true paradise for ski lovers. 

I want to guide you on a 4-day ski touring trip to ascend several 3000 meters peaks. In fact, the program will include the ascent of Wildspitze (3770m). It’s the highest summit of the Oetztal Alps and the second one in Austria. All of these ascents have one thing in common: the wonderful descents afterwards!

We will meet in the town of Vent to start our adventure. Each night we will stay in a different mountain hut, allowing us to explore different slopes each day. On the first day we will go up to Saykogel or Hauslabkogel. The second and third days include the ascents of Similaun Mittlere Guslarspitze. Finally, on the last day we will ascend the Wildspitze and end the trip with a spectacular descent.

Looking forward to joining me in the Oetztal Alps for 4 fantastic ski touring days? Then please send me a request indicating when you want to leave! It will be my pleasure to guide you in this area that I know so well. And if freeride is what you are looking for, why not have a look at my program in Solden.

About the guide

I've been skiing and climbing since my early childhood. I graduated in 2005 from the Univerzity of Hradec Kralove with a Master degree at the Faculty of Education. Since then I worked as a history and PE teacher. I was also running an Outdoor sport's club at that time, spending plenty of time climbing, skiing etc. with my students.

In 2009, I became a full time skiing and climbing instructor.

Licences:
2009 – APUL C ski instructor
2010 – APUL B ski instructor
2011 – APUL telemark and snowboard
2012 – ISIA Mark (International ski instructors association)
– MSMT climbing instructor and Mountain leader
2013 – entered the UIAGM mountain guide education
2014 – passed the UIAGM Aspirant exam.

Spending your holiday with you would be my pleasure. Whether in winter on a ski tour (in Czech Republic or Austria) or in summer among the spectacular sandstone towers.

It will be, with no doubt, a very pleasant experience for all of us. I'm an easygoing, friendly and reliable person with a good sense for responsibility.

Don't hesitate to get in touch with me !
