 Trip description

Follow the Snow! Best of the Alps VIII

icon_info.gif Your destination...

...is located? We don't know where exacly yet. Besides snow conditions and weather the most important part this year is: 
Safety!
Snow safety and of course your safety!
Due to this the Follow the Snow! Camp es even more interesting than last seasons.
A fixed date, a flexible region and flexible ski resorts - the perfect concept for our Follow the Snow! camps.
Far away from the tourist hords in your own small "group bubble".
With this concept depending on snow conditions and Covid-19 risk we choose where to go on a very short notice.
Ca. 4-10 days before the start of the trip we are going to send you the location of our hotel.
Could not get any better, right?

This is why we chose to expand our Follow the Snow! concept to the whole alps - not an easy task for us but no worries, if we cannot manage it, who can?

Possible destinations expand from Austria via Italy and Switzerland all the way to France, of course not too far from Germany, as otherwise the journey would get too long.
Our strategic location for the hotel/lodge will be near good ski resorts so that we are able to choose between an abundance of amazing ski resorts and go where the snow is best. Our local Sport65 mountain guides are going to choose the right place very short term to ensure the best days possible.
Of course we are trying to minimize the daily commute to the ski resorts - but no worries, because we are going to do the daily commute with our Sport65 van, you do not need your car once we arrived at our hotel.

In case you are flying into Germany please choose Frankfurt as we can pick you up at the airport and get to the destination with our van from our shop. Other airports are difficult to choose as we do not know our route/destination yet.

Unfortantely mother earth does not allow us to give you the 100% "powder" or "heath" guarantee, but with this concept we can ensure the best skiing possible at these dates.

icon_info.gif Required skills for the Follow the Snow! Camps:

Frist and foremost: flexibility!
We will decide where to go in short terms to guarantee the best conditions possible.
Note: We try our best but we can not influence the wheater. At least not yet...Therefore even on a Follow the Snow! Camp we can not give a powder guarantee but as already said we keep doing our best..

Your expectations...

  • Experience new untouched terrain and lost valleys accompanied by a UIAGM mountain guide and Sport65 Safety guide. On the hunt for fresh snow, but always with a maximum in safety!
  • Short hikes with skins are common, ranging from 20 minutes up to two hours. Depending on strength and ability of the group and first and foremost the snow conditions. If there is fresh powder next to the lifts, we will not start hiking past it. No worries!
    Hikes are not seen as a "Skitour" in the end they are only means to an end to reach nice runs and get away from the hustle in the ski resort. Thats why we travel to the destination with the most promising conditions :)
  • If needed we will do some rappelling as well to reach couloirs and untouched faces.
  • But: No worries as already mentioned we are not hiking, skinning or climbing for fun...it's all about the descent!
  • More over the mountaing guides teach you how to read a mountain and raise the awareness of alpine hazards and how to handle them.
  • You are flexible and the perfect conditions are more important to you then a luxury accomondation.
    Than you found the right trip- untracked faces, deep powder or perfect firn conditions are what we are looking for!
  • The accomodation is not the most important thing for you!
  • Size of the group : Only 5-7 participants per mountain guide and safety guide! Thats two guides per group!

Your requirements...

  • Skiing skills: Experienced skiers off piste skiing all kind of terrain fluently with very good technique
  • Fitness level: Physical strenght and fitness is mandatory - we are skiing off-piste!
    The guides will plan the tours and days suiting the groups strenght and abilities.
  • Previous knowledge: Already spent a lot of time off pist. In the best case you have already joined one of our freeride camps before. So we can guarantee you a lot of fun!
    Experience in: Mounting and hiking with skins
    Handling and basic knowledge of avalanche safety gear.
    Experience in rappelling is not mandatory, if needed our guides will show you how to.
  • Equipment: Allmountain/Freeride skis with a min. of 95mm under foot with mountaineering bindings and skins as well as the full avalanche equipment (shovel, probe, beacon) and a harness. If you need to rent any of this, no problem! Let us know.
  • Snowboarder: Normally can not participate on an Follow the Snow Camp, because skiers and snowboardes are moving too different in the backcountry.
    But: If you are a a very skilled Splitboarder with experience in Hiking with skins or if you are a mixed group we can organize a camp for you!

Die Schweiz: Freeriden in kleinen oder großen Gebieten der Superlative!

Was soll man dazu sagen? In den schweizer Alpen finden sich einige Freeride-Gebiete, die wir seit Jahren im Programm haben.
Warum? Weil diese für unseren (und den Geschmack unserer Gäste) zum besten zählen, was man weltweit finden kann!
Ob es die kleinen Perlen wie Lötschental, Zinal, der Haldigrat, Disentis oder die kleinen Gebiete im Berner Oberland oder die internationalen Top-Reviere wie Zermatt, Davos, St. Moritz, Verbier, Flims-Laax oder Lenzerheide sind: Hier geht bei den richtigen Verhältnissen einfach immer was!

Vom kleinen gemütlichen Familienskigebiet bis hin zum super hohen Freeridemekka - wenn der Schnee stimmt: Ist es überall genial und dank unserer jahrelangen Erfahrung und Ortskenntnis von uns und unserer Guides: Sollte das Follow the Snow! die Schweiz ansteuern:
Kommt ihr auf eure Kosten, garantiert!

Und natürlich werden wir auch hier permanent die Coronalage im Blick haben - denn die Schweizer Gebiete gehen ganz klar davon aus:

Freeriden in Austria: Vom Salzburgerland bis Tirol...

Eines dürfte klar sein: Wenn es die Coronalage zulässt ist Österreich natürlich auf der Weltkarte einer der Flecken, der zum Freeriden und Tourengehen herausragt!
Nicht zuletzt die Ortskenntnis unserer Guides und unsere jahrzehntelange Erfahrung stehen hier für euren Freeridespaß.
Ob am Kitzsteinhorn oder in Saalbach im Salzburgerland, am Grossglockner oder natürlich rund um das Inntal mit seinen Gletschergebieten oder am legendären Arlberg: Hier finden wir vom Früh- bis in den Spätwinter oder im Frühjahr einen riesigen Freeride Spielplatz und jede Menge kleiner, gemütlicher Unterkünfte, von denen aus wir jeden Tag auf Wetter- und Schneelage reagieren können.
Natürlich werden wir hier auch die dann aktuelle Coronalage berücksichtigen und Gebiete auswählen, von denen wir uns, neben der Schneelage auch ein sicheres Freeriden erwarten.
Hand aufs Herz: Wer sucht, der findet - das wissen unsere Gäste seit Jahren und:
Wir werden finden!

Logischerweise werden wir gerade im Hinblick auf die COVID-19 Situation hier größtes Augenmerk auf die Auswahl eures Follow the Snow! Camps legen, denn natürlich werden wir eventuelle Reisewarnungen berücksichtigen!
Sollte es nach Österreich gehen: Wird das auch von offiziellen Stellen aus erlaubt sein!

Freeride á l´italiano: Ein Traum auf der Südseite der Alpen!

Warst du schon mal Freeriden in Italien? Nein? Solltest du mal machen! Rüber über den Brenner oder durch den San Bernard oder Montblanc Tunnel und du wirst sehen: Das hat schon etwas ganz besonderes!
Südtirol oder die Dolomiten, Livigno oder Bormio, der Passo Tonale oder die Region rund um Montblanc, Monterosa, Matterhorn oder das Aostatal sind schon echte Highlights und ein Skifahrer-Traum.
Einzig diese Frage stellt sich: Wo ist wann der Schnee am besten? Wann sind wir #righttimerightplace?
Tagsüber durch die einsamen (Freeride)-Gebiete cruisen, mit unseren Guides kleine versteckte Hütten entdecken, weit weg vom Touristenrummel und vollen Liften unterwegs sein und am Abend in unserer gemütlichen Unterkunft Italien-Feeling pur erleben - eine einzigartige Erfahrung.

icon_info.gif Auch hier gilt natürlich unser Motto: Sei maximal flexibel!
Logischerweise werden wir solche Gebiete ansteuern, die von der Wegstrecke von Deutschland aus gut machbar sind - und die Coronalage sowie eventuelle Risikowarnungen beachten.
Wir wollen auch hier: Dass ihr mit uns maximal sicher unterwegs seid - abseits der Pisten, aber auch in der Unterkunft und Beförderungsanlagen!

Skifahren & Freeriden wie Gott in Frankreich...

Dieser Spruch dürfte hier wohl zutreffen!
Die Skigebiete, die hier in Frankreich auf unserer To-Do Liste stehen sprechen für sich!
Von Portes du Soleil, Chamonix, Megève oder dem Grand Massif hast du sicher schon gehört - dass hier Freeriden oder Tourengehen zum Standard Repertoire zählen dürfte dir auch bekannt sein.
Sollte unser Weg beim Follow the Snow! nach Frankreich führen wird das Ganze kombiniert mit der Unterkunft, die wir in dem Fall aussuchen und unseren Guides, die hier mit dir unterwegs sind garantiert ein Highlight für dich werden.

Auch hier achten wir neben den dann aktuellen Coronaregeln natürlich auf eher kleine Gebiete, auf Gebiete ohne großen Touristenrummel und riesige Liftanlagen und eine gute, sinnvolle Erreichbarkeit für euer Camp - unser Weg wird dann eher in die Gebiete rund um den Genfer See/Chamonix liegen und nur nach Rücksprache mit unseren Gästen weiter nach Süden führen.

The renter can get his bindings adjusted in a sport shop on-site at own cost.
Sport65 equipment is not automatically insured against breakage or theft.
