Description

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!

Another ski touring traverse that I love is the mythical one from Chamonix to Zermatt, check it out!
