The goal of the tour is clear: find the best snow conditions (powder if possible) and do as many runs as the group can muster. All under the supervision and direction of your guides which hold the highest possible Austrian guiding and safety qualifications.

Itinerary

The duration of the tour is customisable depending on your best dates and duration. Pricing is indicated for 5-days skiing but can be adjusted according to duration. Regardless, every day will follow a simple program - after breakfast in the hotel, your group will be picked up by the guide (in the mini-bus). The group will have lunch together at some mountain restaurants and go find the best snow there is in between. After skiing, with some help from the guide, you can experience the fabulous sights & nightlife of Innsbruck.

As for ski resorts, if there is a big dump of snow from the north, resorts like Nordkette or Seefeld can be excellent. If it comes from the south, the group might go to Stubai Glacier, Kühtai, Schlick or Axamer Lizum. Or perhaps you are keen on a ski-tour up to the peaks at Glungezer or Patscherkofel. Near Innsbruck, there is always the perfect option for every day. The guides will help you experience not only the classics, but also very little-known runs that you would never find without a local guide.

Ski Ability & Customising Your Tour

This tour can be fully customised to meet any of your skiing (or snowboarding/splitboarding) needs and match your group’s ski ability. If skiing off-piste, freeride powder is not your thing, but you want to learn, the guide can slowly introduce you to it, providing advice & skills development, whilst showing you the best ski areas the region has to offer. If you wish to be guided through the local resorts by staying on the groomed pistes, it can done too. All guides are qualified instructors that can easily spend some time on technical improvement if you wish. If you are more into ski-touring away from the ski lifts, the region has an incredible range of quiet valleys to explore, and all are well-known to the guides! Just ask and the guides will try to deliver.

The tour duration can be for longer or shorter than 7 days.
