Day 1 - 08:00
At the meeting point, we organize our equipment and perform an avalanche transceiver check.
After gluing the skins and preparing the pulka, we start the approach towards the first base camp, from where we will decide, depending on the snowpack and weather situation, which slopes and couloirs to descend in the afternoon and the day after!
The approach on the first day will take between 2 and 4 hours, depending on the pace of all participants and snow conditions. Up to Base Camp the ascent is quite avalanche safe and steady, and does not involve any major difficulties.
We set up base camp, have a snack, and decide on an afternoon tour so that all participants are at the same level. Occasionally the afternoon tour may include steep steps that need to be tackled with crampons and ice axe, as well as steep slopes on the descent.
After experiencing a fantastic descent, we return to the base camp. Nothing stands in the way of a quiet and restful night!
We can watch shooting stars, eat and drink something warm and make ourselves comfortable in the expedition tents, read a bit or chat with our new friends. Comfortably we let the evening come to an end.
Day 2 - 08:00
Today is another day of proper action!
We eat a hearty breakfast, prepare our skis, and start the next ascent with fantastic views! Once again, the summit is agreed with all members, so that everyone is on the same level. The location of our base camp will allow everyone to find the right tour for him, be it something relaxing and gentle, or steep couloirs with scary faces for adrenaline lovers!
After 3 to 6 hours of skinning up we reach our destination. Now it's time once again to skin off, and send it!
As soon as we have reached the base camp again, everything is dismantled, the pulka is fixed again, and off we go to the meeting point in the valley!
The pictures of this incredible micro expedition will be taken by a professional photographer, who will send them to you by e-mail within the next 10 days. So you can prove everyone what extraordinary experience you just have experienced!

- The exact ski tour will be defined and notified in advance, depending on the skiing ability of the participants and snow conditions;
- This adventure is more suitable for advanced skiers, as good skiing skills are required as well as endurance for the ascent;
- This adventure differs from the "ski tour expedition" adventure as the focus is not put on ascents and summit climbs, but rather on choosing unique lines and descents.
