Grossvenediger training course

From: 489,00 

Minimum number of participants: 4 people (If there are fewer participants, we reserve the right to rebook the date).

The area around the Kürsinger Hütte with the famous Grossvenediger 3.660 m is the ideal area for this alpine training course. We only conduct our courses with state-certified mountain guides in small groups. In our introductory training, beginners and slightly advanced climbers can gather enough basic techniques and knowledge of the ice, to be able to independently plan and go on high alpine tours.

This course can also be booked as a private course on the desired date. We look forward to your inquiry .
