The ultimate ski touring adventure away from the pistes. Give your body a work out as you skin up the mountain and reward yourself with a dream powder off track descent!
If you love the mountains, are reasonably fit and ski, then a mountain ski tour, otherwise known as backcountry skiing or ski touring will be very addictive! Once you have tried it, you'll never look back!
Rather than using the ski lifts to get you up the mountain you skin up on your own steam. This means you are not dependent on any infrastructure so can go wherever you like, obviously taking into account safety and avalanches.
We have a range of ski touring trips and tours with set itineraries and fixed departure dates that you can join as an individual, couple or small group and we can also tailor make trips for groups of four or more in any of our destinations.
You can choose a refuge to refuge ski tour or go for a more flexible 'day ski tour' approach from one or two bases. You can also try ski touring as a one off activity as part of a winter multi activity holiday.
Make the most of our local expertise and highly qualified guides for an unforgettable ski touring adventure in the mountains! For all our guided ski touring holidays we use UIAGM high mountain guides, some of whom are also qualified ski instructors so that we can ensure your safety in the mountains and give you quality tips and advice on your skiing technique and ski touring skills!
We have a range of ski touring trips suitable for beginners, intermediate and advanced ski tourers. To embark on a ski touring or backcountry skiing trip you need a good level of fitness and some experience skiing off piste in different snow conditions but you don't need to be an expert skier or have any actual ski touring experience. Read our blog to find out if you have got the necessary fitness and skills for ski touring.
