Great Day Backcountry Skiing

My wife and I enjoyed a great day backcountry skiing with Torben on Wednesday of this week.

We met early with the intention of skiing off the back of Valluga to Zürs, and an afternoon session from Maroi to Langen in the Arlberg region. We were both put at ease by Torben’s laid back personality and approach to guiding – it helped make the day a very enjoyable experience.

After assessing our ability levels and safety equipment check, it was time for the first run of the day. Torben picked very safe lines, and we were impressed with both his local and mountain knowledge – explaining elements of what to look for, which type of area may be susceptible to avalanche….as well as the occasional technique pointer.

The afternoon session involved a short hike – something neither of us had experienced before and this unexpected addition was both rewarding and great fun – followed by an amazing ski through the backcountry to Langen.

All in all the experience was great fun and I really recommend Torben as a guide. The day will be varied, informative, relaxed and great fun – but with the all-important emphasis on safety. Thanks again – we’ll be back soon!
