Ski Big Mountain

Training for high alpine, steep ski tours

Ski Big Mountain

There is nothing more intense than skiing in the high mountains and drawing your own lines, it's like going out to the open sea and riding the big waves. For this you need a good training and deep knowledge of how to behave in this powerful nature to come back home healthy and full of joy.

Are you a good/very good skier, but have never used crampons to climb or rappel up a couloir to get to epic runs? How do you transition from skis to crampons? How do you belay yourself when rappelling down a couloir and build a fixed point? How do I belay steep descents? How do I secure myself on glaciers and what about the danger of crevasses? Can you assess the avalanche situation sufficiently well?

An exciting weekend, depending on snow conditions in Andermatt or Engelberg.
