We would say that ski touring is a mixture of trekking, walking, going up and down with ski, combining the technique and equipment of alpine ski and cross-country skiing. Human’s desire to get closer to the wild nature during the winter, to discover its vastness and beauty, has led to various innovation of the ski equipment in order to provide the best one for this specific activity.
The most complex ski touring type could be described as ski alpinism and includes long trekking into the ‘wild snow’, steep even vertical climbs on rocks and glaciers and heady skiing on mountain hills / walls.
The ski touring adventure is suitable for people who already have experience and would like to get closer to the nature, outside the resorts’ slopes.
