What is the difference between the starter course and the basic ski touring course?

The starter course is designed for beginners who want to take their first step into the world of ski touring. Together we look at what it takes to go on a ski tour. In the terrain we show tips and tricks for the ascent, look at the avalanche situation and work out an initial tour plan.

The basic ski tour course is designed to enable you to go on a ski tour independently. More intensive attention is paid to tour preparation and the assessment of the avalanche situation. On the second day, what you have learned is put into practice on a practical tour.

What happens in bad weather?

In principle, ski tours can always be carried out. We adapt the course ideally to the conditions.

Führung nur durch ausgebildete und erfahrene Bergführer/Aspiranten.  Das Lawinen Safety-Set (Sonde, LVS, Schaufel) ist obligatorisch. Sofern das Skigebiet wegen extremen äusseren Wetterbedingungen geschlossen bleibt, bieten Ihnen eine Alternativmöglichkeit an.

Das Angebot wird an die lokalen, selbständigen Bergführer in Engelberg vermittelt.
