Proper tour planning and concrete snow-how are essential for medium to difficult tours in high alpine terrain. One mistake on the mountain normally is one too many. Therefore, we recommend that tours with a moderate to high difficulty to be flanked with the expertise of a local alpine school. Sterzing-Ratschings-Gossensass / Vipiteno-Racines-Colle Isarco offers best conditions in this field with the mountain guides of „rock snow & icendle“ around mountain guru Hanspeter Eisendle.
