THE ADVENTURE CALLS ONCE AGAIN
The Fischer Sports Transalp tour will be staged again for what is now the fourth time in March 2014! Eight people will take part again!
 
Fischer Transalp has already reached cult status in the scene. The ingredients of this adventure also speak for themselves: crossing the Alps on the snow from south to north in a small group is a memorable experience! In order to guarantee safety, however, you need precise planning and professional guides. And this is exactly what Fischer Transalp has to offer.
 
Another good reason is that on this tour you will get to rub shoulders with superstars from the world of outdoor sport: on this fourth tour, South Tyrolean extreme mountaineer Hans Kammerlander and Mount St. Elias star Axel Naglich will once again be joining the team.
High number of candidates every year.
 
Only the selected few get to enjoy what this exclusive tour has to offer: to ensure the safety of the group, there not only has to be a limit to the number of participants, everyone who takes part also has to have a high level of physical fitness, enough ski touring experience and a sound knowledge of topography.
 
This is why a casting procedure is used to make the selection. If you want to take part you have to convince us in two steps: first with your online application (application deadline was the 31st of December) and then in the casting in Obertauern in January, where the Fischer mountain pros will select the participants from a shortlist of 20 people.
