Description

Would you like to join me in a great ski touring trip in the Stubai Valley? As a local guide and a mountain lover, I can guarantee you will enjoy this experience as much as I.

The program I am proposing today consists in a 4-day ski touring trip among the highlights of the Stubai Valley. It is a 40-km long alpine valley situated in Tyrol, Austria. In fact, it is the central valley of the stunning Stubai Alps.

During this adventure we will walk up to a 2147-meter-high mountain hut (Franz Senn Hut). We will also skin over the Ferner Glacier as well as challenge ourselves to ski tour on long powder runs. If you want a more detailed itinerary, you’ll find it at the end of this description.

Regarding the ski level, participants should need to be comfortable on steep slopes. Besides that, it is necessary to be well trained. Take into account you have to be able to ascend over moderate terrain for 6-to-8 hours each day.

My main objective during this trip will be to focus on your safety. That’s why I lead groups of no more than 6 people. Furthermore, as a local guide based in Tyrol I know perfectly the region of the Austrian Alps. You have to know I will offer you the most suitable experience according to your expectations and wishes.

Please, contact me now if you are planning to come to Austria and are looking for a big skiing adventure. I will be pleased to accompany you during this trip in the highlights of the Stubai Valley.
