Whether Mont Blanc or Gran Paradiso, whether in Wallis or in the Bernese Oberland: everywhere you need basic knowledge of how to use crampons, ice axes and ropes. We give you the tools and knowledge to achieve your mountain goals in glacial terrain.

The mountain guide will train you in crampon techniques, walking on the glacier, clearing crevasses, etc. The Taschachhaus in the Pitztal serves as a base. Here we can find ideal training facilities. After three days of training, you will apply what you have learned under supervision. The goal is one of the surrounding 3000m.
