The “coaching camp” for your big alpine tours!

The Big Mountain Camp is designed for good skiers who want to deepen their experience in alpine terrain. We coach you directly on the mountain, on the basis of exciting alpine tours.

The aim of the camp is:

  • Direct coaching from the mountain guide to experienced skiers/tourers.
  • Plan and execute alpine tours
  • Decide and be on the way independently in large terrain

This means in concrete terms:

  • Independent tour planning for alpine tours
  • Handling rope and hardware for couloirs, glaciers etc.
  • Ski alpinism with “scrambling”, ridge, etc.
  • Advanced skiing skills in alpine terrain

We as mountain guides are at your disposal as “coaches” and help you to decide and execute the plans you have made. This means that not only we, but also you lead the way!

With tips & tricks we will raise your already good level and experience great adventures together!

Ski technique: very good off-piste skiing technique, solid ascent technique
Stamina: endurance for ascents of up to 5-6 hours (1000-1300 m) and long descents.




The conditions during early season can vary. Therefor also our program during the camp. The participant can look forward to a safe and high-quality program regardless of weather and snow conditions. We want to create an optimal learning climate where everyone can contribute their experiences. The team of mountain guides are very motivated to pass on their own experiences to you in a good way. The participants’ experiences and knowledge from the mountains also give us all additional opportunities to develop even more.

The passion for nature and skiing connects us all and we want to focus on the community of snow sports during these three days.

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.
