Level of Experience Required
To ski tour in the European Alps you need to be physically fit, and be capable of strenuous exercise each day. Most days will start early, but there is usually some scope for some later starts and relaxed evenings to enjoy the classic European culture.
Even skiing and climbing at the moderate altitudes in Europe has a definite physical effect on people. Most climbers and skiers notice a lower performance rate than normal. Touring days are physically demanding and can entail 1000m/3,300ft ascent at altitude.
Preparing for your Trip
To make the most of your skiing experience we encourage you to work on your fitness and skiing/snowboarding prior to the trip. Your guide places special focus on fitness levels and will regulate the pace accordingly.
