Description

Splitboarding in the Alps of Austria is a fantastic way to spend one, or several days. The snow is amazing. The views are spectacular, and the experience is absolutely unforgettable. And on this trip, I would like to take you splitboarding on the sensational Sonnspitze peak (2,062m).

Sonnspitze is located in the Kitzbuhel Alps, in the Tyrol area of Austria. Since the mountain is not enormous, at least by Alps standards, this trip will not be excessively difficult. In fact, people with little splitboarding experience can still enjoy it. However, since there will be an increase in altitude of at least 1,000 meters, and splitboarding is a physically demanding activity, participants should be in good physical condition.

This trip will begin at the parking lot in front of the Auracher wildpark. From there, we will follow the Wildalmgraben. After that, we will make our way over the Niederwildalm up to the Hochwildalm hut, (1,557 m). Finally, we will scale the rest of the peak, crossing a sleep slope below Schotting, to the summit. And from there, you will get to enjoy a thrilling descent back down!

Sonnspitze is conveniently located near several resort areas in the Tyrol. Some of the resort areas include Fieberbrunn and Saalbach. So if you are staying in those places, getting to the mountain and enjoying this trip is very easy.

If you would like to enjoy a great splitboarding adventure, send me a request and come to Sonnspitze. I have no doubt you will have a great time.

I also offer a beginner level splitboarding course in the Kitzbuhel Alps as well.

The pricing system was not really user friendly. Still I have a positive feedback in the website. The link was sharable with the group, everything in one place with booking code as reference. It was a positive experience for me. I'm happy. It was even easy to organise it for the others.

Georg is an extremely knowledgable ski guide who is qualified as both a mountain guide and a top level ski instructor so perfect for getting you going in the off piste or taking the more experienced to a new level. He also speaks perfect English.

My guide ended up being a local snowboard guide named Peter. It was excellent. Lovely guy, we got to ride some powder as well as practice searching with the avalanche rescue equipment. All round good day. Would highly recommend

We had a wonderful day skiing down to Fiberbrunn with our guide Mathias Leo. He found deep light powder snow. The snow was unexpectedly good considering it had not snowed for many weeks! It is only guides with the best knowledge that can find good conditions long after the last snow fall. The smiles remained on our faces the whole day :) Henrik

Really enjoyed a day of off piste with Mathias. We were lift-serviced with some short hikes and traverses and found plenty of fresh powder! If you are honest about what you want, and your group's abilities, then Mathias will create an experience that works!

I found Explore Share an excellent service in locating me a local alpine guide, who in turn tailored for me a brilliant 4 days mountaineering in Austria. Many thanks to Lupe for all her assistance in organising my guide and Mathias for his expert & personable guidance in the Austrian Alps.

Mathias took us on a slightly different trip more catered to rock climbing. It was exactly what we were looking for! We did a one day multi pitch climbing course and then a one day mountain ascent. I'd highly recommend Mathias if you're looking for an adventure in Austria.

Great experience! My only suggestion would be to specify better the equipment needed (e.g. when booking on the website it was mentioned "the guide has all needed safety equipment", but after booking the guide then specified you needed to provide your own skins for the crosscountry walking etc., which was news to us). The rest was perfect!

Super day! we skied untracked snow all day. Mathias managed to plan the trip just up to our skill level. And that’s is what you get from a good guide, he have to quickly find the right level for the group. Made the day wery exiting but safe. We did a lot of steep skiing and some steep booting but felt safe all day. We used skins to get the best areas, and some booting with ski on backpack. Recommended to get to the best areas! Our best reviews for Mathias!

Extremely exciting trip with good learning all the way from the experienced guide. First time on the top of a mountain. Certainly not the last time with explore-share, and the guide Mathias Leo. Thanks!

This was our first time climbing in the alps, only did lower peaks in Sweden before. Mathias did a great job, everything felt extremely safe, and we still managed to do it in good time. We'll definitely be calling him for next year's trip!

My two days of rock climbing with Mathias were amazing! I am not a very good rock climber, but Mathias was very patient, always super helpful and encouraged me to get better and better. He took me to great spots for climbing routes that were doable but not easy for me and I felt very safe at every moment. He is also just a super nice and patient guy and I would go climbing with him again anytime!

I would like to drop a note saying how amazing of a time I had climbing with Mathias. Coming from the United States all I asked was for a true Austrian Alps climbing experience. The first day we spent multi-pitch sport climbing up to grade UIAA 6+. Such and amazing day on bullet proof limestone.  The second day I got to experience alpine climbing that started with a two hour hike up a hanging glaciated valley to one of the classic routes.  I highly recommend arranging a climbing trip with Mathias. I will guarantee you will be exhausted at the end of each day with a huge smile on your face.  It was truly an experience of a life time and next time I am in Austria I will be booking another adventure with this group.

Quelques jours de vacances organisés à la dernière minute grâce à Explore-Share. Direction l’Autriche avec Matthias pour l’ascension du Grossglockner et au bout un très beau souvenir. Ne vous fiez pas a sa jeunesse et son air désinvolte, Matthias est un vrai pro par ses connaissances et son expérience. Toujours souriant, attentif et attentionné, la confiance qui s’est installée nous a permis de grimper en toute sécurité et sans stress et quand le sommet tardait à arriver il savait remotiver son équipe. Il n a qu’un seul défaut : il n aime pas le fromage!! ;) Bref de parfaites vacances sportives. Arielle (France)
