The half-hearted onset of winter over the last two years and the stormy summer made our “work” as mountain and ski guides quite challenging. However, it has been a very enriching experience.
The ability to adapt is just as much a part of mountaineering as mastering the various techniques.
Despite the difficulties and in a type of “snow-transhumance”, we managed to create a fantastic ski-touring winter which was made possible through your flexibility. Above all, circumstances have shown us that the winter-start needs to be based at a slightly higher altitude (see Ski-touring at New Year No.03) and for the climbing week, an equivalent “Plan B” should always be agreed upon as an alternative. This requires a great deal of experience in and around the mountains coupled with logistical knowledge.
Taking the above points into consideration, we have again created a varied annual programme that will enable us to make full use of all the available possibilities and, together with you, experience an unforgettable, fulfilling mountain year.
