We offer our beginner tours according to the five “Golden Rules” for a successful day on the mountain: sunny location, dream view, snow-safe, avalanche-protected, awesome descent!
What awaits you at one of our beginner courses? First, a basic introduction to the material and the ascent technique, because first of all you have to reach the summit. Then a practical tour with an exciting ascent that will reward you with beautiful views. Finally, a descent in deep snow with addictive potential, because there is nothing better than drawing your own tracks in deep snow!
