This is a trip focused on adventure, fun, and thrills. From our base in the Rhone valley, we will choose different Via-Ferrata to stretch and challenge the group and ensure there is plenty of time for cheese, wine and chocolate (or ice cream).
In this weekend you will learn the basics of ski touring. This is a trip for skiers who are able to ski confidently on-piste and which to learn how to journey through the mountains. This requires specialist gear as you walk up the mountain to "earn your turns" before enjoying off-piste descents. The basics of Avalanche avoidance, search and rescue will also be covered. A great introduction for people looking to transfer their skiing skills to mountain journeying.
The Jura is a hidden section of Swiss mountains that is lower and less snowy so opens earlier in the year.
During this trip, the group will take on the best sections of the Jura Crescent trail, climbing though meadows and farmland, staying in mountain refuges and finally descending to Lake Geneva at Nyon.
