Levels and difficulties

(Self-)assessment and which event suits me?

A good self-assessment is by no means easy and depends on several factors. Important questions to ask yourself are:

  • What do I want?
  • What can I do?
  • How high is my motivation to get better?

We have divided our trips and courses into 4 levels, from Beginner to Expert. As described above, you must first ask yourself what you want. For example, if you want to get a good introduction or first steps in a new mountain sport discipline, then it’s easy, you are best off with our courses in the ‘Beginner’ level. Equally easy is the decision if you are a very good biker or skier and want to experience a casual week with many descents. Then you are in perfect hands with our core offer, the expert level trips. Expert in our case means that you have a lot of experience in your sport, have fun doing it and always have your bike or skis under control.

If you are somewhere between a beginner and an expert in terms of your own skills, then the most important question is whether you want to improve and are motivated to do so. For example, if you just want to do a beautiful and scenic Transalp on gravel roads and easy trails, or medium ski touring without too challenging descents, then check out our Intermediate and Advanced events. I’m sure there’s something casual in there.

If you are super motivated to improve your own skills, take a look at the trips that might seem too difficult at first, contact us for individual advice, and don’t forget to check out our course program. Our declared goal is that everyone who wants to can be a part of our hobby horses, the Expert trips. If you are not yet ready, we will be happy to accompany you on your way to acquire the necessary skills.

The levels described here are only guidelines for rough orientation. Be sure to read the detailed description at each event, and contact us at any time if you have questions.
