Guiding &Group Size
Unlike many other skitour operators, we keep group size relatively small, to provide best possible skitour and skiing experience. The maximum group size is 6 persons. There is one guide per group, plus a tail-guide if required.
Because of the nature of the backcountry terrain, we ask our guests to meet a certain level of fitness and skiing ability. To join our groups, you should be:
- Intermediate or higher level of skiing/boarding, including in deep-snow conditions.
- Healthy and in good physical shape.
- Able skin up at least 1000 vertical meters per day.
Most of the time we ski the tree-line zone, long open lanes through the trees, some snow pillows, and peppery lines through rocks.
Runs are from 400 to 900m vertical with slopes from 25 to 40 degrees.
On an average day the vertical drop will be 1200-1300m, but varies of course according to the group’s abilities.
There is only one type of snow in our location – powder. So, we are definitely looking only for powder skiing/snowboarding, and even don’t think about other snow conditions.
