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!

I had a great time climbing with Sebastien. He modified the trip because of the weather and was able to find dry rock on a wet day. Throughout the trip Sebastien not only provided plenty of climbing but also helped me on skills that I wanted to improve on.

It was my first ski touring experience in high montainous areas: it was just unique thanks notably to the way Sébastien managed us in a very professional way. He inspired confidence in our group while this was the very first time for three among us. Congrats.

Nous avons passé trois jours entre Chamonix et La Clusaz, quelques classiques dans les aiguilles rouges et une belle journée au début du massif des Aravis. Nous avons particulièrement apprecié Sébastien pour ces choix en rapport avec notre niveau, sa patience, sa pédagogie juste quand il faut, pro et sympathique,de très bons moments en montagne, sportifs et conviviaux.

Thanks a lot Sebastien for helping us in getting ready to ascent the Mont Blanc and for letting us discover the incredible Vallée Blanche. It has been an unique experience that we will probably never forget. I hope we can climb an other mountain soon together. Take care. Gauthier

Sébastien taught us all the bases of glacier climbing. We spent nice days with him in the Vallée Blanche and Mont-Blanc area. He was very patient and pedagogue. Thanks to him we could discover great little summit close to Aiguille du Midi!
