Level of Experience Required
To ski tour in the European Alps, you will need to be able to link parallel turns in all types of off-piste snow conditions, be physically fit and have a minimum of 5 days ski touring experience.
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. Ski touring days are physically demanding and can entail a 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.
