The definition of Ski Touring is travelling on skis across the mountains, reaching every night differently or occasionally returning to the same mountain hut.
This involves some skiing and may affect a minimal amount of crossing rocks and occasionally using ropes by the guide to ensure safety. The main aim of Ski Touring is to traverse the mountains, not to climb them.
Ski Touring is a physically demanding sport requiring a degree of fitness for anyone wishing to do the sport.
It also demands an ability to navigate the backcountry and negotiate the adverse conditions you may experience.
Much of the trek can be uphill or on dangerous terrain, so it is essential to ensure you are physically capable of the undertaking before going Ski Touring.
Physical exertion aside, the sport comes with several risks. Whilst exploring the backcountry, there may be any number of hazards that could cause potential harm or danger.
You must always wear the appropriate safety equipment, such as protective clothing and suitable head protection.
