Description

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!

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.
