Join a certified mountain guide to learn the important techniques on how to properly rope on a glacier during a 2 hour course at the Sihlhölzli sport complex in Zurich, Switzerland.
There are a number of important techniques that must be mastered in order to enjoy safe and successful mountaineering. Some examples include knot tying, learning how to properly use a avalanche transceiver and knowing how to properly rope yourself in while walking on a glacier, which will be the focus of this 2 hour evening course that will take place at the Sihlhölzli sporting facility.
Walking on glaciers is one of the most thrilling experiences a mountaineer can have. You are traversing on unstable, constantly changing, gorgeous terrain. However, with that excitement and beauty comes a lot of potential risk. That is why it is necessary to know how to trek on glaciers properly.
The Sihlhölzli outdoor sporting facility is the perfect place to practice for the glaciers to come. The facility is spacious and will provide all of the space we need for you to learn and practice. Moreover, the complex is located in the beautiful city of Zurich. Hence making this course, which begins at 6:30 pm, a great addition to any vacation to the city you may be taking.
Participants on this course should know how to tie a base knot. If you don’t have any experience with proper knot tying, I also offer this 2 hour course, which also takes place at the Sihlhölzli sports complex.
Have you ever dreamed of walking on a glacier? Then send me a request and join me on this course. I would be happy to teach you how to properly rope yourself in, so you can do it safely.
There are plenty of comfortable accommodation options in Zurich that I would be happy to recommend to you.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

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
