Ice Training-Mountain Guide Zermatt

The Ice Training with a Mountain Guide Zermatt is for all who want to move in snow and ice safely

You would like to do some mountaineering and not just rely on luck but with a solid base. Or you would like to bring yourself up to date and to improve your technique. This you can do with me with a varied and versatile training. The Theodulglacier (Zermatt) can be easily reached, about 30 minutes walk from the hut and offers excellent training conditions. The climax will be the climb of the Breithorn 4164 metre, 13’325ft. on the third day. In the trainings the mountain guide puts a lot of attention on practical work and trying to keep theory as small as possible. The following subjects will be shown:
