Activity description

If winter climbing has always fascinated you, why not give it a shot this winter? In a place where time appears to have stood still, a whole universe of ice, snow and rock awaits you.

As the winter sets in and the mountains change, they offer new challenges to winter climbers. Loose chutes become frozen corridors, revealing many routes for you to explore. Finding and climbing the most perfect route to the top is a contest you previously only dreamt of achieving.
