More female power in the mountains!

Women only, girls only, ladies only – What ever! The approved coaching camps for like-minded women.

During these days the women show where it goes!

Often women can learn and apply better amongst themselves, “without men”. In a small group you can grow and improve your self-confidence with other women. With modern training content we want to advance your existing knowledge and skills.

The program of the camps is designed to motivate and train you to be independent on tours!

Ski touring & Freeride Camp

The program is designed for ski tourers and freeriders. Thanks to the level system and 3-5 different groups, there is something for all levels.

Avalanche training & companion rescue / first aid

If things go wrong, we want to be prepared for an extreme situation. Do you have your avalanche transceiver fully under control and are you fast enough even under stress? Do you also function in complex situations under time pressure?

Every situation brings individual problems with it. That’s where we focus and train you in the best possible way.

Duration: ½ day plus evening course
Direction: Mountain guide IVBV & Ski patroller

  • Companion rescue
  • Search, probing, shoveling
  • Multiple burial
  • First aid for freeriders / ski tourers with ski patroller
  • Minor accidents
  • Assistance avalanche accidents
Bad weather options

As the name suggests, the Pre-Season Camp takes place in the pre-season. The weather, the conditions and the amount of snow is not always optimal. If the ski area should remain closed because of e.g. storm, heavy snowfall or even too little snow, we offer you alternative possibilities in the valley to be optimally prepared for the upcoming winter season.

Duration: As little as possible, as much as necessary.
Direction: Mountain guide and specialists for this purpose

  • Multiple burial LVS
  • Rope handling
    Rope shortening
    Rope maneuver
  • Abseiling
  • Self ascent
  • Crevasse rescue
  • Improvised rescues
  • “Trouble shooting” on the mountain
  • First aid
  • Snowpack structure, snow crystals etc.
Ski Mountaineering / Adventure Skiing

In a real freeride area like Titlis, you need the right skills to get from the classic runs to the adventure terrain. Often you have to “scramble” a bit in short places or abseil into a gully/couloir. This is not only to get to the good snow, but it is an experience in itself.

Duration: 1 day
Direction: Mountain guide IVBV

  • Training block “Rope & More” based on different situations
  • Equipment
  • Knots
  • Abseiling normal & improvised
  • Anchorages in rock, ice and snow
  • Ski skills 40° plus
  • Assessment special case couloirs
  • Safe skiing in steep terrain
  • Jumpturns
  • Sliding sideways, spit turns etc.
  • Small application tour with e.g. abseiling into a couloir
  • The conditions for such terrain must be suitable!
Skitechnik Alpine

On a small application tour we deepen your alpine ski technique in the ascent and descent in challenging terrain. Because good skiing and solid accenting mean also safety! Sometimes it takes only a few small tips to achieve a great result.

Duration: ½ day
Direction: Mountain guide IVBV

  • Sicherheit & Taktik in steilem / schwierigem Gelände 
  • (Spitzkehren, Seitwärts Abrutschen, Ski anziehen in steilem Gelände)
  • Technik Aufstieg
  • (Kick-Truns, Spitzkehren mit Fellen, Handling Felle & Harsteisen, effizienter Wechsel, Bootpacking, etc.)

Mountaineering Camp – Glacier & Snow

On high alpine tours you are often on the glacier. This is a breathtaking landscape, but you should pay attention to some points to not mess up.

  • Roping on the glacier
  • Anchorages in firn and ice
  • Use of ice axe and crampons
  • Short application tour
  • “If something goes wrong”In the evening while having a beer or similar we will do a short theoretical training.

Mountaineering Camp – Application Tour

Now we implement what we have learned and climb a peak together. Here you will be independent in rope teams and benefit from tips & tricks directly in the terrain. The focus is not on a difficult summit, but on independent thinking and doing.

  • Tour planning
  • Tactics on the way
  • When do I use where, which rope?
  • Glacier rope, short rope, micro pitches, pitches
  • Belay points
  • Summit success 😉
  • Descents and abseiling

Dani Perret

“Skiing in the adventure area means a lot to me. With some imagination and the right skills, you can experience something in all conditions. Thanks to rope & skins, you can reach slopes and gullies that will make your heart beat faster.”

Dani was born and raised in the same area as Piers. The adventure in the mountains attracted him already as a child and teenager again and again to lonely and secluded terrain. He feels at home on skis, mountain-, climbing- or trailrunning shoes, in all disciplines. The focus is not so much on relative performance, but rather on lasting experiences with the highest possible level of safety.

Dani is a full-time mountain guide in winter as well as summer, stationed in Engelberg. Again and again he discovers the Engelberg valley and the surrounding areas in the Alps with new eyes and is happy to share his newly gained ideas with you.

Angi Weibel

For me, being in the mountains means living in the here and now. Nowhere else do I find so much peace and satisfaction. Focused on the next step or the next move.
I discover the mountains anew every day. Storm-tossed peaks, big rock faces and powder descents are my whole fascination.”

Freeride- & Skitourencamp

In the winter version, everyone is responsible for their own overnight stay. I.e. if you live nearby, you can go home in the evening. If you are with us for several days (and of course we hope you are) and you don’t sleep in your bus, we can make some suggestions:

  • Jugendherberge: Very cheap solution for the smaller budget. We are almost not in a hotel anyway…
  • Ski Lodge: The place to be. Where ski pro’s and mountain guides say good night to each other
  • Terrasse: Grandiose view over Engelberg. Bed & Ski in the package
  • Crystal: Family hotel in the heart of Engelberg
  • Engelberg: Historic hotel, cool hosts, in the middle of the village street
  • GRAND Hostel&Bar: Great value for money.

We don’t have a deal with any of these hotels. We just think they are good. But there are certainly others.

Hochtouren Camp

At the high tour camp we sleep in a SAC hut. The overnight stay incl. half board is already organized and booked by us in advance. (If you have special food wishes (vegetarian or similar, please inform the hut directly in advance).
Life in a hut is very simple and beautiful. It has no shower but running glacier water!

Possibilities (varies depending on the year):

  • Spannorthütte
  • Kröntenhütte
  • Tierberglihut
  • Sustli hut
