This weekend will be spent properly around the Heidelbergehütte. We will make as many as possible meters to get you ready for the next step, a splitboard hut traverse or a splitboard trip to Norway.
On the first day, we will meet in Ischgl, take the lift up and ride some lines in the resort. After lunch, we go deeper into the valley and splitboard up to the hut where we will arrive late afternoon. After dinner, we will plan the tour for the next day.
Depending on the fitness and snowboard level of the group, we will make will be around 500 to 1000 vertical meters a day. This makes it possible for any snowboarder to join this trip, with some off-piste snowboarding experience or someone who did already has several splitboard tours. There will be another group so we are able to make two groups with a different level.
If the weather is not cooperating we can ride in the resort, look into the snow stability, avalanche training, splitboarding Technik’s, etc.
The Heidelberger hütte is a great place, with a warm and welcome host that provides us dinner and breakfast. From here you can make several tours directly on the Swiss/Austrian border. The rooms are simple and accommodate 2-10 people comfortably. The hut is based in the middle of nowhere at 2264m, with possibilities to tour to a few 3000m peaks. Within a 30 min. ride down, you will reach the ski resort Ischgl
