SKI TOURING

Ski touring is a way to ski in the wilderness, i.e. outside of ski resorts. It allows you to travel through winter areas on skis alone, without ski lifts or snowmobiles. This is possible because, unlike in alpine skiing, the bindings allow the heel to be raised for a more natural walk uphill or on flat terrain. Contrary to Nordic skiing, where the heel is always free, in touring skiing the heel can be fixed and downhill skiing can be done in classic alpine style. Ski touring is closely connected with hiking, mountaineering, as well as skiing, both alpine and nordic.
Ski touring develops exceptional fitness and mental stability. Navigating your way through snowy terrain is an essential aspect of ski touring. Ski touring can take skiers to mountain areas that are deserted in winter, where they can experience real peace and quiet.
