Description

Ready for an exciting ski touring trip in the Lepontine Alps? Join me for a 2-day tour and discover Pizzo Campo Tencia (3072 m), a beautiful mountain in the canton of Ticino.

Pizzo Campo Tencia lies in a wild and hidden corner of the Levantine Valley, south of the Lago di Morghirolo. This 2-day ski tour is also a great possibility to experience the local hospitality and fine cuisine in the mountain hut. 

Get ready to put your skiing skills in practice in this peaceful corner of the Alps. From Dalpe, we climb comfortably into the Piumogna Valley. We stop in the Tencia Hut, where we will spend the night. Depending on the group desire and strength we can climb Pizzo Campulongo this day.

On the second day of our tour, we leave the hut early in the morning and reach the Pizzo Campo Tencia summit in about 3 hours. A fantastic descent of 2000 meters leads us directly back again to Dalpe. The mountains, the powder and the spectacular scenery will make for a great ski tour in the Leopontine Alps.

Mountain Guide

I was born in 1973. I am a professional mountain guide and a part-time professor. My guests and their safety are at the heart of all my tours. This is why I always closely analyze weather and mountain conditions, as well as the ideal maximum number of participants.

I work hard to keep my clients motivated and help them reach their goals. Ensuring a good group experience is one of the keys to success. I believe that a good spirit up in the mountain and sharing is important to have a good overall experience.

I love spending time with friends in the mountain. If it is in winter, all the better. My favorite region for mountaineering is Chamonix. My favorite mountain? It depends on the season. But if I need to choose one, I would say Eiger mountain. Some of my favorite climbing routes are Apriti Cielo – Osogna TI, the north ridge of the Eiger mountain and the Marinelli channel on skis. In terms of terrain, I can't choose between rock and ice: mixed is the way to go.

My favorite book? Aleph, by Paulo Cohelo. My favorite film? Meet Joe Black. My favorite online sites? Many! www.planetmountain.com, www.up-climbing.com, www.gulliver.it and www.camptocamp.org

Finally, the best way to finish a tour for me is with Pommes Chips Nature and a nice cold beer. I hope you join me in one of my tours soon.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
