Ski touring is one of ski activities done off-piste or outside ski-resorts. It contains elements of winter mountain hiking but instead of crampons one wears skies (with skins while up hilling) and rides downhill in a wild, unprepared terrain. It’s a brilliant way of spending a day without crowds typical for mountain resorts. The difference is immense – ski touring allows you to walk comfortably all day or longer in an untouched winter scenery.
Ski touring is also an interesting way of combining mountain hiking and skiing. Those who got bored with doing a lift up and ski down routine may get their challenge! Conquering a mountain or a pass on one’s own – delivers an overwhelming sense of satisfaction. For mountain hikers – getting down the mountain on skies and shortening come-back time is something that makes a day!
