Description

Lining the border between Austria and Switzerland, the Silvretta Alps stretch far and proud.

Consisting of over 70 gorgeous peaks, the Silvretta Alps are an amazing collection of mountains. And I would like to help you traverse them on this 4 day splitboarding adventure.

The trip will begin and conclude in the Austrian ski village of Ischgl. Every day of this trip you will get to visit the summits of several of the range’s most majestic peaks. Below is a list of those peaks.

  • Zahnjoch (2,947m)

  • Grenzeckkhopf (3,048m)

  • Obere Ochsenscharte (2,980m)

  • Dreilanderspitze (3,197m)

  • Egghorn (3,147m)

  • Piz Buin (3,312m)

Each peak offers some fantastic and exciting descents, along with some truly spectacular views. You will also get to visit the lovely village of Galtur as well. Meanwhile, every night we will stop and rest for the night in a different mountain hut. The huts we will be staying in are the Heidelberger hut, the Jamtal hut and Wiesbadener hut.

In order to participate on this trip, you should be able to splitboard at an minimum intermediate level. And because we will be trekking to the summit of numerous peaks, and we will be at a high altitude for the majority of this trip, you should be in good physical condition as well.

Splitboarding through a collection of peaks like the Silvretta Alps is a memorable experience. And if you would like to take part in that experience, please send me a request. I would be happy to guide you.

Would you like to splitboard on the renowned, breathtaking and challenging Haute route? If you do, then come and join me on this 6 day journey from Chamonix to Zermatt.

Mountain Guide

Hi! I'm Renato, IFMGA guide from the Dolomites, and I work together with my colleagues Robert, Patrick & Walter (German speaking), Paolo, Matteo and Davide.

If I'm not available to guide you, one of them will take care of you.

I was born in 1961, I live in Campitello di Fassa, in the Dolomites, together with my family. I have two sons, one is a mountain guide, the other is a ski instructor. I am a certified mountain guide since 1982, an instructor of guides, alpine ski instructor and a Federal coach for ISEF.

Being in the mountains has always been my passion, guiding people, teaching them climbing, mountaineering... during the various seasons of the year. I very much enjoy drawing nice curves in fresh powder snow and discover the charm of the frozen waterfalls.

My curriculum and professional mountaineering is made of many ascents and some openings of routes in the Dolomites and the Alps. I climbed in Yosemite Valley (California), Ben Nevis (Scotland) and Norway, Greece, Spain and Sardinia. I did also several high altitude climbs like Mt Denali (Alaska), Ama Dablam (6828m), Cho Oyu (8201m), Manaslu (8163m), Shivling in India (6545m), Cotopaxi and Chimborazo in Ecuador (5897m and 6310m), Patagonia (Argentina).

Feel free to get in touch with me if you are coming in the Dolomites for skiing (alpine, freeride and ski touring), rock climbing, sport climbing and multi pitch climbing. It will be my pleasure to guide you here and let you discover my secret spots.

Paolo, notre guide, était à la fois un vrai professionnel de la montagne et très sympathique. Pour notre 1ère Via Ferrata en famille, avec nos 3 filles de 11, 11 et 13,5 ans, le niveau 2/5 de difficulté était suffisamment challengeant, et tout s'est bien passé. Il faut arriver en forme. Nos filles aiment grimper, avaient fait un peu d'accrobranche et un stage d'escalade il y a 2 ans, mais ne pratiquent pas cette activité régulièrement. Mon mari et moi non plus mais nous sommes sportifs et avions fait un peu d'accrobranche aussi. Paolo nous a aidé dans les 2-3 endroits délicats avec peu de prises. Dans les parties de randonnée avant et après la Via Ferrata, le rythme était très bien, Paolo était attentionné. Il a même fait des photos lorsqu'il le pouvait pendant cette journée. Nous sommes ravis de cette expérience, merci encore Paolo !

Our family of four ( myself, my husband and our 2 teenage daughters) did a first time via ferrata trip led by Robert. We had a great time. There was one via ferrata offered- Ferrata Fusetti al Sass de Stria. I can see why it was chosen. It was pretty close to Cortina, where we were staying. For newbies it had enough challenge and excitement. It was also fairly quiet so we didn’t have issues with people needing to pass us while climbing. The excursion took us about 3.5 hours, including a short hike to the summit after the via ferrata, and making our way back down. The views from the summit were glorious- we were surrounded by all the famous peaks. Robert did a great job leading us. He was knowledgeable and we all got up safely (no tears). He took a bunch of photos for us and sent them afterwards. Highly recommend this excursion- would do it again!

Matteo is a very nice guy, a young guide. It was unfortunate the weather did not cooperate on the first day but the second day was stunning. Given our self description of age fitness and experience, we were a bit surprised at the route chosen, which was more challenging than expected. An improvement on our next trip would be to be alerted to the need for more thorough equipment list, e.g. ideally we should have prepared climbing gloves for the via Ferrata; ideally we should have had climbing shoes of a particular specification (more toe protection, ankle coverage and support). Nevertheless we appreciated Matteo and the experience was what we had hoped for and certainly hope to return soon to experience other parts of the beautiful Dolomites.
