Ski touring in the Alps is a rewarding and culture-rich experience…
The European Alps are one of the most stunning high elevation mountain range in the world. They abound iconic summits, complex glaciations, stunning alpine faces and of course good skiing. Their shear beauty is gracefully complemented by a long history of mountaineering, a rich mountain culture and accessibility from its various bordering country like France, Switzerland, Italy and Austria.
Ski touring in the Alps is a rewarding and civilized experience. Lifts and telepheriques (trams) facilitate a fast access to fantastically glaciated backcountry terrain. The many backcountry huts, comfortably perched in the high alpine, offer a warm bed and are fully catered. This means that you will leisurely be ski touring with a light pack even while on a multi day ski tour. Join us on one of our European program and experience this vibrant and international mountain culture.
