Ski touring is a sport which combines two activities of great fascination: ski and alpinism. It regards ascents and tours in the mountains, featuring a high difference in altitude and off-piste descents.
The ascent is done with special skis which are applied skins (generally seal skins) under, to improve the grip with the snow. It can also be an ascent with some climbing moments to reach the peak and generally skis are carried on the backpack.
Physical training and experience are crucial, but satisfaction after a day like this is guaranteed. The ascent is for sure the part requiring more physical and mental effort, but the descent in powder snow shouldn’t be underestimated.
If it is the first time that you approach this sport, it is recommended to do ski touring with an alpine guide, who can explain and come with for an adventure in complete safety.
Safety also in terms of being well equipped: we at Redelk know how it is important to choose the right clothes for each activity and for each moment of the day.
