Mammut Alpine School: expansion to Austria

Seon, April 10, 2018 - From summer 2018, outdoor enthusiasts in Austria will also be able to attend courses and tours at the Mammut Alpine School. The successful Swiss concept is expanding to Austria, offering unforgettable outdoor experiences for alpine sport fans. The new Mammut Alpine School will be led by Armin Reitner.

The Mammut Alpine School (MAS) opens up the world of the mountains to its students. The MAS will begin operations in Austria from summer 2018, offering a diverse program that includes alpine tours, climbing routes and via ferratas.

With its new Austrian branch, Mammut is continuing the Mammut Alpine School’s decade-long success story: it was founded in 2008, and Mammut remains the only outdoor brand with a proprietary mountaineering school. Since then, mountaineering enthusiasts have enjoyed a comprehensive education and tour program in Switzerland, Germany and Austria. In 2015, Mammut also acquired the Uri Mountaineering School (BSU), which was founded in 1981. Since the winter of 2015/16, the BSU and MSA haveoffered a joint program. With the opening of the MAS Austria in summer 2018, Mammut is strengthening its own mountaineering school concept and further expanding its range.

The MAS Austria will be led by certified mountaineering and ski guide Armin Reitner. Armin, who hails from the Dachstein region of Upper Austria, is a Mammut Austria team athlete and can be found traveling the Austrian Alps all year round.  He is full of anticipation for the new challenge: “I’m looking forward to introducing people to the Eastern Alps and to alpine sport, and offering them a unique experience.”

MAS Austria will offer tours for every interest and difficulty level:

  • From the Dachstein Steinerweg (2,995 m) to the Großvenediger (3,674 m)
  • From the Patteriol (3,056 m) at Arlberg to the Wildspitze (3,770 m) in the Ötztal Alps, to the highest point in Austria, the Großglockner (3,798 m)
  • Guests can also take advantage of a wide range of test and rental equipment.
