Try ski touring for a different way of getting about the mountains!

Ski touring is the way to get up the steep slopes at the heart of the Alpine landscape like a mountaineer. «Seal skins» fitted under the skis for the climb enable you to lift your heel and turn happily!
There’s no need to panic when going downhill. All you have to do is take off the skins, lock the heels and enjoy Alpine skiing as you know it.

As for equipment?

You will need:

 A pair of light and above all short touring skis

 A pair of the ski touring bindings

 A pair of ski touring boots

  Self-adhesive seal skins

 Hiking equipement such as a ruckack for carrying your skis if necessary, suitable clothing...

 Not forgetting: shovel, probe et ARVA for when you venture off the marked pistes
