The Silvretta Alps, in Austria, are fantastic for ski touring. Join Jan, IFMGA certified mountain guide, to explore Piz Buin, Silvrettahorn and more!
The Wiesbadenerhutte (Wiesbadener hut) is located at the Oetzal valley, in the Silvretta Alps. It is the perfect starting point for fantastic ski touring itineraries.
In this occasion, I organized a 4-day ski touring trip in Silvretta Alps, in Austria, staying at the Wiesbadenerhutte. The hut is easily accessible and the surrounding terrains are fantastic. For example there is Piz Buin, Silvrettahorn and Dreiländerspitze. In particular, Piz Buin (3312m) is the most popular peak in the region for skiers as well as mountaineers.
The flat and wide glaciers will allow you to enjoy ski touring here, putting in practice all your skills. The area is famous for the great quality and quantity of snow. Since the glaciers are wide, there is a lot of virgin terrain. Besides, the descents are long and varied.
You can not get it wrong with this tour! Join me to explore the hidden corners of the Silvretta Alps with our skis on.

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.

Awesome day of climbing provided by Jan. Extremely knowledgeable about the area and a fantastic climber and guide. This trip to Hruboskelsko was amazing in every way and climbing the towers an unbelievable experience. Would highly recommend this trip to all climbers, whether new or experienced.
Jan was amazing, professional, funny, and inspirational. The way he dealt with us and individuals whilst having a joint venture. The climb was amazing, the route selected was perfect for ability. I proposed to my girlfriend at the summit after that amazing ridge. She said yes, Jan was in on it and accommodated this without sacrificing safety. We look forward to using Jan\'s services again. He was by far the best IMG I have used. Words cannot thank enough for the experience.
We climbed locally in Turnov, which worked out perfectly. Jan was flexible and professional setting up a meeting spot and drove us to the climbing. He struck a perfect balance of grades and led routes I did not want to lead, and gave \"laser guided beta\" for gear on routes I did lead. We spoke of climbing, history, love, life, and politics while enjoying beautiful scenery. His local knowledge was obvious and enhanced the whole trip. While Czech sandstone is not for the faint of heart, Jan made this side of climbing very accessible and pleasurable far beyond my expectations. 10/10. If this trip is of interest to you, book with complete confidence.
I decided to undertake the three day introductory ski touring course with Jan this February in the Krkonose Mountains (Giant Mountains). Over the course of two full days and one evening, Jan and his co-guide Vojta introduced me and the rest of the group to the science, history, gear, and skills of ski touring, all while maintaining a friendly, vibrant atmosphere. Both of the guides had a very professional but warm approach to keeping everyone safe, and made sure we undertook and learned all the safety precautions needed in alpine environments. I didn\'t have any of my own ski touring gear, so I borrowed everything from the guides - all of the gear was of high quality and worked perfectly. The course was perfectly challenging but fun at the same time, and has gotten me hooked on ski touring. I can\'t imagine a better way to be introduced to ski touring, with better people - I highly recommend this experience!
I had a magnificent ski-tour from hut to hut in the Giant Mountains. The powder snow conditions were wonderful, the scenery very fine and there is a very good network of comfortable mountain hostels and huts. However, a key element that made my tour such a success was the expert help of the organisers and my guide. Jan Novotny and Roman Kubát have an excellent outdoor store in Vrchlavi and were able to provide me with all the equipment I needed as well as taking care of all the organisation. The guiding service offered by Vojtěch Dvořák was excellent and I give him 10 out of 10 for each of technical expertise, knowledge of the area (including ability to explain many interesting features of history and geography) and care of the client. Thanks to these three, this was an excellent outdoor experience I shall not forget and that I can highly recommend to anybody interested in Alpine ski-touring.
