Our ski touring events

Untracked powder slopes, long firn descents and scenic ski tours, this and much more awaits you at Flat Sucks. Besides lots of snow and lonely peaks, it is important to us that our guests become more familiar with the matter of mountains, snow and risk. That’s why you can learn the necessary know-how in various courses and camps. Based on this, there are our ski touring trips in different levels of difficulty. Besides our home area around Innsbruck, the Nordkette and the Stubai Alps, we are of course also on the road in Switzerland, France and Italy.

The main focus is always clearly on the experience. Be it untracked slopes on lonely ski tours, or steep gullies in the Dolomites. However, it is never neglected that safety has top priority and the tours are adapted to the conditions so that the residual risk is minimized.

Our mountain and ski guides

Michael Mayrhofer – A Saalbacher who moved to Innsbruck many years ago. For a long time he was simply a ski instructor, full time. Thereby always on the highest level and also at some freeride contests at the start. Meanwhile, the educator, mountain guide, coach and much more. His experience, his trained eye and his easy to understand and motivating way with which he explains complex things, have so far improved almost everyone technically with whom he was on the road. Despite his skiing career, Michi is not one to follow the curriculum. When skiing, not everyone should look the same, it must be free, dynamic and yet stylish.

Lisa Horst grew up in Swabia, was abroad in British Columbia and then in Innsbruck for her studies. Meanwhile, she trained as a state-certified ski instructor and ski guide, and has been freelancing on the snow for over 15 years since then. Resident in Ostallgäu, but at home on the slopes, in powder, ski touring and telemark.

Markus Emprechtinger: Born in the hilly Innviertel region, it was clear at the latest when he moved to Innsbruck to study that a life without mountains would no longer be viable. He studied meteorology so he wouldn’t get caught in the rain on the road, but most of the time he’s outdoors anyway and takes the weather as it comes. After many years of bike guiding experience (over 50 Transalps) now fully in the mountain guide business. Markus is an all-rounder, whether with bike, ice tools, climbing pads or skis, he has fun everywhere. That’s why flatsucks, as long as the terrain isn’t flat, nothing stands in the way of a good day. Besides mountain sports, there is also photography.

Sabine Schipflinger – Grown up in Viehhofen, a small village in front of Saalbach Hinterglemm, she moved to Innsbruck to study sports science. When she’s not in college, she loves to spend her time on the snow or on the trails. Through her work as an instructor in the ski instructors association, ski guide and mountain bike guide, she likes to pass on her knowledge to like-minded people or those who want to become one.

Patrick is a snow person, bikedad, and mountain guide. For him, it’s the depth meters that count, 365 days a year. However, it’s not about quantity, but quality. When the snow is bad, he stays at home, but then he is again the first in the field when there is fresh snow.

Thomas Peer – I live in the Stubaital, where I also grew up. Since my childhood I had many long winters, so I got into skiing at an early age. Very quickly I sought the adventure off-piste and to this day I am fascinated by ski touring in pristine landscapes. As a full-time mountain and ski guide, it is my desire to share my passion and experience with my guests.
