Description

Have you ever tried ski mountaineering? Well, this is your chance! Join me for a unique alpine experience in the Giant Mountains!

The Giant Mountains, also known as the Krkonoše, are a group of peaks on the border of the Czech Republic and Poland. Part of the Sudetes mountain range, the highest point of elevation in this range is the Sněžka peak (1,603m). The area has many ski resorts but is also a popular destination for winter adventures away from the crowds.

On this 3-day trip we will explore these impressive mountains and learn the basics of ski mountaineering: climbing and downhill techniques, usage of specific equipment, recognizing avalanche risks and moving safely in exposed slopes. In addition, we will ski on top-quality virgin snow surrounded by a breathtaking landscape.

Keep in mind that intermediate level skiing and fitness levels are required for this trip. We usually spend  6 to 8 hours per day in the mountain, and hike up about 800m. 

So, if you would like to join this ski mountaineering experience in the Giant Mountains, please contact me! Be ready for a different winter adventure!

Lukas

Mountain Leader

I have been surrounded by mountains all my life. My parents took me hiking even before I could walk. Later on, as a teenager, I started cycling at a very high level for almost 10 years. And then, in 2013, my passion for the mountains drove me to sign up to become a professional Mountain Guide.

In 2015 I got my Rock Climbing Instructor certificate and finally in 2017 I graduated as a UIMLA certified mountain leader. Every day I fulfil my childhood dream of living in and for the mountains.

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.
