This 2-day course begins on Friday with an afternoon briefing during which we will review some basic notions of cross-country skiing and avalanche equipment.

On Saturday we will have a real feel of how it is to ski in the High Tatras. We will also learn many more technical aspects of skiing such as stability test in snow and basic skills using an avalanche transceiver. I will teach you how to safely control your ski descents and how to stop a fall on a steep slope.

Finally on Sunday we will put into practice everything learned, looking for the best itineraries of the High Tatras. Upon successful completion of the course, each participant will receive a certificate and will be ready for new adventures in other outstanding locations around the world!

Mountain Guide

I was born in Poprad and I live, work and relax in the High Tatras. I have been climbing in this region for 15 years both in summer and winter.
Since 2001 I am a professional rescuer with a completed Bachelor education in Urgent Medical Care. Furthermore, I work in The Experts Mountain Rescue Service (in High Tatras) as an avalanche specialist.
In 2009, after passing the entrance examination for mountain guiding, I started the roundabout course. In April 2010, I became a mountain guide aspirant in the National Association of Mountain Guides of the Slovak Republic.
In 2011, during the final course in Chamonix - Mont Blanc (France) I successfully completed the course of mountain guide during four days of tests, under the strict supervision of Technical Commission NAHVSR instructors. Since then, I am a mountain guide with the IFMGA / UIAGM international license.
Thanks to this job (and hobby) I am pleased to expand the horizons of my clients and share with them my knowledge and experience as a mountain guide.
