Description

Join me in an incredible week of pure training! I will teach you all the necessary backcountry skiing skills in the Schladming area.

If you want to enjoy a real ski adventure in the best powder runs of the world, you will first need to know the basic techniques. I think that there is no better place to acquire them than in a real environment. That is why I propose you this one-week ski course in the Schladming’s pistes.

During this week I’ll do my best to share with you all my knowledge and expertise. The aim of this course is for you to learn all the theoretical content of skiing and then put it into practice on real slopes.

The main content that we will review and learn is the following:

  • Proper use of the backcountry skiing equipment;

  • Off-piste skiing techniques;

  • Summit ascent to Gasselhöhe;

  • Use of the avalanche transceiver;

  • What to do in case of avalanche.

We will use the video as a support to learn better. During the course, you’ll have the opportunity of skiing down Planai, Hochwurzen and Reiteralm. They are the most amazing ski runs of the Schladming area. 

The highlights of this weekly training will be in the north side of Gasselhöhe and Krahbergzinken. They’ll provide us with amazing ski descents where you can practice all you have learned. The Edelgries is another great spot to ski down on good snow days.

Regarding the accommodation, we will rest, have dinner and sleep at Fam Rettensteiner, in our 2 apartments or in another lodge in the area.

This course can be run for a maximum of 8 people. I’m running this program once a year during specific dates. I can also organize it for private groups. All you have to do is filling out the form and be in touch with me.

It’ll be my pleasure to you help you improve your current skills or teach you new ones. I have no doubt that the Schladming ski area is the perfect spot for this training trip! All you have to do is filling out the form and be in touch with me.

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.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
