I offer you unforgettable days of your life with lots of fun, best powder snow which can be found and epic terrain. No matter if you are beginner or expert. I will take your winter thrills to new heights.
FREERIDING OFF THE PISTE
When groomed runs are not quite challenging enough, you’ll be thrilled to discover excitingalternatives to reach untouched terrain and take your winter thrills to new heights. If you are a beginner freerider I will familiarize you with the safety equipment we use in the backcountry.
HIKE AND RIDE
Hikes from 10 till 45 minutes will bring us to peaks nearby the ski area and into the deep powder of the backountry. You will get to know a new world what will offer huge amount of freeride terrain. Away from the hustle and noise of commercial ski areas we will find more and better untracked powder.
SPLITBOARDING / TOURING
Touring is a great way to discover the mountains! Strange as it may seem, the uphill climbs are a great part of touring: medative, social, and a good workout meanwhile you see nature as you’ve never seen it before. These days Splitboards can provide a ride that’s just as sweet as a normal snowboard. They are no longer to heavy which provides a lovely floaty and responsive ride. Touring brings you far away from the hustle and noise of commercial ski areas. I can assist you and organize rental material.
To experience the beauty and silence of the nature as you never have done before you need to make a hut tour. There is no better feeling then to arrive, after a day of freeriding, at a cozy hut in the middle of the white mountains. A beer or juice, local food and clear starry sky after the sunset will make it to an unforgettable experience.
HELI SKIING / BOARDING
A once in a lifetime experience! In Lech we can fly to two peaks by helicopter, Mehlsack 2651 meter and Schneetäli 2450 meter. The heli does not fly on weekends and in holydays. Price per helicopter flight is between 460,- and 520,- for 4 persons (guide is mandatory). If you are ready for the next level I can inform you about heliskiing Canada, Island and New Zealand.
My home and favorite resorts are Arlberg and Montafon. Arlberg is a world-class resort’s expansive 200 kilometers of gnarly backcountry terrain make it perfect for those seeking the deep and extreme. In Montafon are fewer freeriders, what means more powder snow. I have been freeriding in more than 50 ski areas and I am stoked to show you around, where ever the snow is the best.
AVALANCHE SAFETY TRAINING & GLACIER RESCUE TRAINING
Knowledge is the most important tool when considering backcountry terrain. The best way to learn the basic safety rules ore advanced avalanche training is the mix between theory and practice. I will train with you and explain the danger of avalanches in the mountains. Finally I will exanimate you, so you lurn to know your skills and knowledge and where you can still improve yourself. I can also introduce or improve your glacier rescue technics. We will first practice in the valley, later on glaciered terrain.
Most important is to stay save. I take note of your physical condition and skills as well as the weather and the risk of avalanche. All my freeride guests must wear the minimal safety equipment (backpack, shovel, probe and beacon). I recommend Airbag and helmet. I rent full sets if you don’t have the safety equipment.
