Beginner course ski touring
From the piste to the first ski tour
This basic course with ski technique training is the perfect start into a ski touring career. You bring enthusiasm for snowy mountains and confident skiing on slopes, with a bit of fitness for ascents; then you have all that is needed for your first ski tour. Enjoy our diversified beginner program far away from the daily stress and hectic in the comfortable Hotel Almhof Roswitha in Hochschwendberg / Schwendau.
Program 4 days
1. day: Meeting point at 09:00am at the alpine school Mountain Sports. Greeting and material check, followed by the transfer to the Almhof Roswitha in Hochschwendberg. After the check-in, we head to the new Möslbahn, (lays directly behind the hotel), and go up to the ski resort of Mayrhofen. Today, we work on our skiing technique on the slope and start the LVS basic training. After getting used to the equipment, the mountain guide introduces you to the skiing technique for the off piste. After this, our focus goes to the LVS device and learning about the avalanche awareness with our safety equipment.
2. – 4. day: Day tours, adjusted to your skills – ascending techniques and track systems. In the next few days we try to apply the knowledge and new taught skills in the off piste. Depending on the abilities, we try out several ascents and descents to refine the skiing in off piste and ascending with skis. The highlight will be to reach an easy ski touring summit. The course ends on Sunday ca. at 16:00 clock.
