Ski touring

From from the hustle and bustle

Thanks to touring skis and ski lifts, you can easily reach all the magical places that on-piste skiers can't get to!
After a short effort, a new world opens up, far from the hustle and bustle! Your efforts will be more than rewarded with turns in untracked slopes, high alpine landscapes and glaciers!

Whether beginner or experienced ski tourer - our guide will show you his favorite area, secret spots or steep couloirs, including the best snow!

Prerequisite for all ski tours: You are a very good skier, manage well off-piste in any type of snow and have already skied in deep snow! If this is not the case, then you can learn all about it in a freeride lesson with us!
