Join me in this magnificent ski touring traverse around the Silvretta massif. During 6 days, mainly in Austria but also in Switzerland, come to this hut to hut trip!

The Silvretta massif is ideal to practice ski touring whatever your level. Magnificent summits, superb viewpoints and of course exceptional snow: the perfect mix!

I will make my best to help participants of different levels to improve their particular skills. This trip is designed for people in good physical shape who have practiced ski touring at least once before.

Confirmed departures 2017: 04/17 and 04/24. If you want to go on other dates, I can also arrange it.

During this ski touring traverse in Silvretta, we will cover how to:
– Progress ski touring in a glacial terrain;
– Assess and manage the risks related to the discipline;
– Use the AVD, shovel and probe.

Keep in mind that you can register alone and I will put a group together. Conversely, if you are an established group, contact me to check special prices.

Did you find this proposal interesting? Then please contact me and let’s start planning!

What happens if I need to cancel the trip?
If you decide to cancel, you’ll get a 100% refund (minus fees) if the cancellation is notified up to 60 days before the start of the tour, a 75% refund (minus fees) if you cancel between 59 and 30 days before the start of the tour, and a 50% refund if you cancel between 29 and 21 days before the start of the tour. If you cancel less than 21 days before the first day of the tour, you won’t receive a refund. Take into account, however, that if accommodation, flights or transfers were included in the trip you booked, then a different policy may apply as the guide will be bound by the provider’s cancellation policy.

What happens if the guide cancels the trip because of bad weather/unsuitable conditions?
If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).

What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.
