Description

As a certified instructor and mountain guide, it’s a honor for me to offer this ski and avalanche course in Dachstein. As you may know it’s the highest peak of the Salzkammergut Alps and Upper Austria!

This skiing and avalanche course in Dachstein is not only intended for beginners in ski touring. It can also work as a refresher and a preparation for experienced skiers in search of more autonomy.

Here below you can find the theoretical and practical contents I’ll teach you during this 3-day training:

  • Tour planning;

  • Weather forecasting;

  • Interpretation of an avalanche report;

  • Slopes assessment through snow poles and shovel tests; 

  • How to create an avalanche report;

  • Use of the avalanche transceiver;

  • How to set up an emergency bivouac.

The main goal of this avalanche course in Dachstein is to get an understanding of all the indications that we should be able to detect while we ski in backcountry terrains. So we then will have the proper resources to know what decision to make in each case.

Regarding the accommodation, we will rest, have dinner and sleep at Fam Rettensteiner, in our 2 apartments or in a holiday village in the center. We can discuss it once you get in touch with me.

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 learning the safety techniques and improve your ski touring skills. I have no doubt that Dachstein is the perfect spot to this kind of trainings!

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
