Definition of Ski Touring

The definition of Ski Touring is travelling on skis across the mountains reaching every night a different or occasionally returning to the same mountain hut.

This involves some skiing and may involve a very limited amount of crossing rocks, and occasionally the use of ropes by the guide to ensure safety. The main aim of Ski Toruing is to traverse the mountains, not to climb them.

Common Injuries

Ski Touring is a physically demanding sport that necessitates a degree of fitness for anyone wishing to do the sport.

It also demands an ability to navigate the back country and negotiate the adverse conditions you may experience.

Much of the trek can be uphill or on dangerous terrain, so it is important to ensure that you are physically capable of the undertaking prior to going Ski Touring.

Physical exertion aside, the sport comes with a number of risks. Whilst exploring back country, there many be any number of hazards that could cause potential harm or danger. 

You are required at all times to wear the appropriate safety equipment, for example protective clothing and / or suitable head protection.
