Description

Would you like to step into the thrilling world of ski touring? Then join me for a 2-day winter adventure in the Mengusovska Valley in the High Tatras!

The High Tatras are a group of mountains located in northern Slovakia and southern Poland. The Mengusovska is one of its beautiful valleys surrounded by impressive snow-capped peaks. With big untracked terrain and a beautiful landscape, this area is a perfect destination for ski touring adventures.

On this weekend course, you will learn the basics of ski touring, an activity which combines skiing and mountaineering. We will reach amazing spots of the Mengusovska Valley where we can practice powder skiing techniques and how to deal with avalanche risk. We will also have time to enjoy: I guarantee fabulous descents on virgin snow, away from the crowds!

Furthermore, we will stay at the Popradske Pleso, a charming hotel dominated by mountains, deep-blue lakes and huge glaciers!

Keep in mind that this course will be adapted to your skills. If you are prepared, we can try some challenging slopes at the end of the valleys of the High Tatras.

So, if you want to come to Slovakia for a weekend ski touring course, please contact me. Let’s explore the awesome powder of the Mengusovska Valley!

We can also practice ice climbing in this same area. Check it out here.

Mountain Guide

I have been rock climbing and mountaineering for over 30 years. I started when I was younger, when I also traveled a lot all over Europe, Scandinavia, Asia, North Africa and North America. I love to climb on rock, snow or ice. I have experience in very diverse locations, from small rock gardens to high mountains in different parts of the world.
I have climbed in the High Tatras, Yosemites, Alps, Dolomites, Caucasus, Alborz/Iran, Cordillera Blanca/Peru and many other areas. I am currently working as a certified-IFMGA mountain guide.

Very nice climb of Gerlach with guide Robert Vrlak in early November. Convenient arrangement for this 1-day climb with Robert picking up at the local hotel and a short drive to the trailhead. Beautiful scenery and a fairly straightforward route with mostly trekking and scrambling but full winter conditions at higher elevations made this climb extra fun and a little more challenging than expected. Would greatly recommend it!

Robert is a really good guide. Nice and knowledgeable. The weather was not good for our climbs. However he managed to come up with alternative plans, as Ice climbing, or climbing peaks which were save to climb in those weather conditions. Plus he is very good at taking pictures.
