Ski Touring

Ski Touring is a form of backcountry/ offpiste skiing involving travelling uphill under human power rather than using ski lifts. It gives you access to spectacular areas and ski terrain miles away from the crowded pistes.

We offer an exciting range of skills based ski touring courses including classic itineraries such as the Chamonix - Zermatt Haute Route as well as exciting trips to the deep fjords of Norways SunnmØre and Lyngen Alps. All our courses are run by UIAGM qualified guides and have an emphasis on mountain-safety and avalanche awarness.

We also run ski touring trips to the following areas: the Dolomites(Italy), Grand Paradiso(Italy), Arolla (Switzerland), High Atlas (Morocco), Bernese Oberland (Switzerland) and more. Don’t hesitate to contact us for more information.
