    Arrive at Munich Int’l airport by 2pm local time. Meet the group next to the information counter in the Munich Airport Center on Level 3. Once we have located our group, we will travel by private coach to Hallstatt. This will be about a 3 hour ride. We will check in and eat dinner at the beautiful Heritage Hotel Hallstatt and then get a good night’s sleep to prepare for our first day on the hill.

    Meet for breakfast at 7am to outline the day and get to know the group. Get ready and meet in the lobby by 8:30. For our first day of riding, we’ll likely head to Gosau Resort, do some bootpacking to find fresh snow and get warmed up with the Guides from Outdoor Leadership. We will eat lunch on the mountain and end the day with a sunset walk through Hallstatt followed by dinner at the hotel.

    Repeat! If there is fresh powder, we load up on carbs and smoked sausage before heading to Krippenstein to catch the first tram to the top of the mountain.

Testimonials
The snowboarding challenged me both mentally and physically and was awesome. I can’t say enough about Outdoor Leadership guide, Rob. The glacier turns were some of the best of my 20 years of snowboarding.

The whole trip was amazing. The night life could have been better, however, the whole crew was too exhausted after riding every day; there was no way drinking was going to be an option.
