Highlights

 
     

    Join me for a full-immersion 4-day ski touring course in the beautiful Aurina Valley (South Tyrol),  in Italy. 

    This course will allow you to wander through the whitewashed mountains, to be passionate about the virgin snow leaps, to seek new emotions away from the slopes or to just go to the alpine world in winter.

    We will cover different aspects of:
    – Climbing techniques
    – Off-piste skiing techniques
    – Avalanche rescue training.

    Check the itinerary below to see how I have divided the activities during the course. You will see that we mix learning and fun practice.

    In particular, I will focus on teaching you:
    – Recognition and evaluation of potential avalanche areas
    – How to find the best climbing routes
    – Location and execution of the best tracks

    Besides all the practical aspects, we will also cover some theoretical aspects. In general we will do it during the evenings, so as not to waste precious day ski time.

    Interested in learning ski touring in the best possible way? Then this course in Aurina Valley is for you! Please send me a request to book this trip and get ready for 4 intense days of learning and ski touring. And once you have more experience ski touring, why not try this mythical 2-day ascent of Mont Blanc?

    What People are Saying about INMONT

     

    An excellent trip to a beautiful location. The guide, Guido, was outstanding. Due to weather conditions we were not able to stay on the boat. Stayed in a hut instead which was very nice. Great skiing, amazing views, good food, great guiding and nice people. Highly recommend this trip. Cheers

    poor weather limited the experience. We had hoped for a guide more familiar with the area, our first and last night were in a remote place requiring an hours walk. We only learnt about this on the day of departure. otherwise no problems
