Highlights

 
     

    Germany is a country full of mountains, and Zugspitze (2,962m) is the highest of them all. Yet, despite the magnitude of this magnificent peak, it is but one aspect of the 5 day adventure I wish to lead you on.

    On this amazing trip, you will get to see several peaks, not only the Zugspitze. And you will not only get to see them, you will get to descend down them as well. The descent of Zugspitze is a near 2000 metre steep, thrill ride. During the descent, you will not see many people. Instead, you will feel like you are completely on your own in the wild, surrounded by everything from forests and open slopes to couloirs. Meanwhile, when we visit the beautiful Alpspitze mountain (2,628m), you will get to enjoy a 1,650 metre descent. And while making our way to the summit of that mountain, you will also get to enjoy the thrill of via ferrata!

    On top of those 2 incredible peaks, you will also get to enjoy days of ski touring in the Austrian resorts of Lermoos and Seefeld. And at the end of each day of the trip, you will get to rest and relax in a hotel in the beautiful resort town of Garmisch.

    To enjoy a trip like this, which involves a great deal of physical exertion, participants should be in good physical condition. Also, due to the challenging nature of some of the descents, some previous skiing experience is a necessity as well.

    With a mountain as amazing as Zugspitze being just one aspect of this amazing trip, it goes without saying that you are in for an  adventure. So if that sounds like the way you want to spend 5 days in Bavaria, just send me a request.

    Please note that this is a private program. Unfortunately, for the time being, I don’t have any group departures planned.

    I also offer a 6 day free ride skiing trip in the Arlberg region of Austria.

    About the Guide

     
     

    IFMGA/UIAGM Mountain Guide

    I am a professional mountain & ski guide. I have been guiding now since 1994. I have always been into the mountains – skiing at age 4 and secretly sneaking away for overnight bivouacs in the mountains behind my parents house. At age 13, I decided to pursue my airy scrambles for something that looked a bit more fun. I went to work as an assistant bringing out other young teenagers on exciting hiking and more importantly to me, climbing outings. One thing led to another and before I knew it my world revolved around the mountains.

    At the age of 18 I moved to France to pursue my passions, later becoming actively involved with the French Alpine Club in Dijon and organizing outings and putting up climbing routes here and there in Burgundy.

    In 1992, I entered the infamous ENSA or French guides school in Chamonix and became the first American to receive international certification (UIAGM/IFMGA) through this prestigious school.

    Since then I have been making my living as a full time professional guide, climbing and skiing in many of the worlds great mountain ranges. I speak fluent French, some Italian and I am now learning German.

    Previously I have worked as a technical consultant for Petzl, and Grivel.

    If you are looking for a great adventure, skiing or climbing, please get in touch with and let's discuss about it.
