If you attended the first level training or have mountain experience we will help you to improve even more and we will provide all the information you need to grow as much as possible and expand your knowledge.

    This training is addressed to both people who want to ski through more committed corridors or inaccessible slopes only doable through alpine climbs; as well as mountaineers who dream of crowning mountains in ways beyond the reach of everyone; or even any other lover of the vertical world.
