BaseCamp Klettern

Admont

About the offer

The Gesäuse has a lot to offer. And not so much either. Above all, no climbing aids. That means especially in winter: Whoever wants to go up needs their own drive. No gondola, no chair lift - the only thing that leads to the summits in winter is muscle power. No effort, no price. Or also: the schnapps has to be earned. And the best thing is: we have just the right offer to match! At the Gesäuse Skitouren BaseCamp you will not only learn the basics of ski touring, but also get to know some of the most beautiful winter locations in the region!

The facts

  • 3 days (Mon, Tue, Wed) ski touring package with extensive basic training in theory and practice
  • For ski touring beginners and advanced
  • Guided and managed by state-certified mountain and ski guides (and Gesäuse Alpine legends)
  • small groups up to max. 4 persons (very personal and individual care)
  • Loaning equipment safety set: avalanche transceiver, avalanche probe, avalanche shovel

The Guides

The two local Indians Christian Stangl and Oliver Rohrmoser are (state-certified) ski and mountain guides out of passion and that's exactly why you not only learn the basics of mountaineering on their tours, but also regularly have something to laugh about. They will guide you and your friends safely through the wintery Gesäuse and teach you everything you need to practice this sport in the BaseCamp ski touring.

Program sequence

BaseCamp, day 1 (Sunday)

At 6 p.m. you will be welcomed by your mountain guide at the headquarters of the alpine rescue service in Admont. In the evening you will receive an introduction about the following days. And as you do in a BaseCamp, you will be given an equipment check so that you can start the next day.

BaseCamp, day 2 (Monday)

The first day at the Ski Touring BaseCamp is the safety day. After breakfast at 09:00 a.m. we start with avalanche accident management in theory and practice: You learn how to search for avalanche victims with your avalanche transceiver, how to probe and dig out a buried person. You will also learn a lot about how to avoid avalanche accidents: How to interpret an avalanche situation report, which terrain to avoid, etc. Additionally, your mountain guide will show you the basics of first aid in the mountains.

BaseCamp, day 3 (Tuesday)

The day starts at 09:00 a.m. with a two-hour theory session on proper tour planning. But at 11:00 a.m. you will get down to business: You will do your first small ski tour with an ascent of 500-700m. There you will be taught in practice everything you need to know about the ascent and how to behave on the descent when ski touring: You will learn how to walk with climbing skins including the so important hairpin technique, the right track layout and the right group behavior on the descent (choice of meeting points etc.). After dinner you plan the ski tour for the next day as a group work.

BaseCamp, day 4 (Wednesday)

At 09:00 a.m. you start the highlight of your ski touring BaseCamp: The first longer ski tour to a mountain peak. Here, everything you have learned in the last days will be applied and deepened. Your tour planning from the evening before will also be analyzed. So you are prepared for your first independent moderate ski tours. Individual departure.
