Highlights

 
     

    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.

    Interested in these 4 ski touring days? Then do not hesitate to get in touch with me! I would love to guide you up there. The Giant Mountains, in Czech Republic, are another fantastic destination for ski touring. You can check it out!

    About the Guide

     
     

    I've been skiing and climbing since my early childhood. I graduated in 2005 from the Univerzity of Hradec Kralove with a Master degree at the Faculty of Education. 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:
    2009 – APUL C ski instructor
    2010 – APUL B ski instructor
    2011 – APUL telemark and snowboard
    2012 – ISIA Mark (International ski instructors association)
    – MSMT climbing instructor and Mountain leader
    2013 – entered the UIAGM mountain guide education
    2014 – passed the UIAGM Aspirant exam.
    2015 - Succeeded the UIAGM / IFMGA final exam

    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 !

    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.
