Description

This is a 6-day ski touring trip in the Silvretta Alps, on the border between Switzerland and Austria.

In this territory there are many peaks over 3000 meters, and the highest one is Piz Buin (3312 m).

Most of the glaciers are facing the north, and offer a perfect terrain to be travelled by ski; this exposure usually guarantees good snow conditions.

Actually, Silvretta has a good reputation because of the snow quality and quantity. Most of the time it’s easy to find good powder snow. Also, because of the wide of the glacier you can often have the possibility to make your own track.

In all the five valleys of the range, there are nice and confortable mountain huts, giving the possibility to organice interesting ski traverses.

This trip is ideal for those who already have a small experience in ski touring, but want to improve their skills and challenge themselves.

You will need a small experience in skinning, but you have to be already good in skiing of piste in all kind of snow with a relatively heavy back pack.

Every day the vertical ascent is around 1000 meters, so a bit of training is necessary to enjoy the experience.

Our departure point is the small hamlet of Guarda. It is a very typical village from Engadina, placed on a sunny slope and surrounded by grass fields and forests.

You can fin a possible itinerary below. However, we’ll design the best program according to the snow and weather conditions.

If you are interested in this ski touring adventure, please get in touch with me. I will be glad to organice this tour based on your wishes and expectations.
