Ski touring in the Giant Mountains

The Giant Mountains are the ideal location to discover ski touring in Czech Republic during this 3-day trip, with Jan, certified mountain guide.

Mountain RangeKrkonoše
Duration3 days
Offer periodJan, Feb, Mar
Type of tripPrivate

Description

Krkonoše, in English called Giant Mountains, are the highest mountains in Czech Republic. Not as large or high as the Alps but beautiful. Don´t expect sharp ridges or steep gully descents. In fact, it’s more ski touring on rounded hills. But remember, due to its location the climate of Krkonoše can be rough.

I’ve prepared a 3-day ski tour during which we will cross the main ridge from the east to the west. A small Haute Route of Krkonoše. Of course we will try to reach the top of Snežka (1602 m), the highest peak. We will spend two nights in the mountain cabins.

The highlights of the expedition:
– The highest peak of Czech republic
– The silent mountains
– Czech cuisine and hospitality

I believe this trip would be something different. Something a bit “exotic”. On that, I’m sure, you will remember forever. If you are interested, contact me for more information!

If you have 5 minutes, I recommend you to read this article Giant Mountains: Ski touring in Czech Republic. It describes the 4-day ski touring traverse of Swiss person who I helped together with a colleague of mine.

Accommodation

In mountain cabins.

Since then I worked as a history and PE teacher. I was also running an Outdoor sport's club at that time, spending plenty of time climbing, skiing etc. with my students.

In 2009, I became a full time skiing and climbing instructor.

Licences:

2010 – APUL B ski instructor
2011 – APUL telemark and snowboard
2012 – ISIA Mark (International ski instructors association)

Spending your holiday with you would be my pleasure. Whether in winter on a ski tour (in Czech Republic or Austria) or in summer among the spectacular sandstone towers.

It will be, with no doubt, a very pleasant experience for all of us. I'm an easygoing, friendly and reliable person with a good sense for responsibility.

Don't hesitate to get in touch with me !
