Join me in this magnificent Spaghetti tour: a 4-day ski mountaineering tour around the Monte Rosa massif. During this intense trip we will ascend several peaks in the area, between Italy and Switzerland.

We will meet in Zermatt, from where we go up to Klein Matterhorn by cable car. On the first day, we ascend the famous Breithorn. The second day we conquer two peaks: Castor and Felikhorn. On the third day, we also attempt two 4000ers, Ludwigshohe and the Pyramide Vincent. And before returning to Zermatt on the last day, we will summit Signalkuppe and Zumsteispitze.

So there’s no doubt that at the end of this tour you will have climbed enough peaks in the area! In my opinion, it’s a great way to explore the Monte Rosa massif. Besides, we spend the nights in Italian mountain huts, enjoying their hospitality and delicious food. In fact, that’s where the name of this tour comes from!

Tempted to spend 4 amazing days ascending so many peaks on your skis? Then please send me a request as I would love to guide you up there! Another fantastic option that you can check out is the ski traverse from Chamonix to Zermatt.

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.

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.
