Ski touring

Many dream of exploring wintry mountain worlds away from the ski pistes. And many more have made their dream come true (several times) already. If you count yourself to one of those groups, then are our ski touring regions your ideal winter holiday destination!

Ambitious hosts and competent partners on site guarantee your personal ski touring experience. Nature and mountain world appear in a completely different light on a ski tour. Everyone determines their own pace and has time to enjoy the surroundings without any hurry. The sense of pleasure is unique on a fantastic downhill ride after the ascent.

Taster tours with expert supervision, ski touring courses (incl. hire equipment) or individually arranged ski tours with qualified mountain guides – perhaps even to one of the many 3.000 metres high mountains – do not only require fitness and self-reliance but reward also your senses with the beauty of pristine nature and fantastic deep-snow downhill rides. Thus, ski touring experts and newcomers alike will find the best environment for this winter sport.

The perfect form of mountain sports, the epitome of freedom. With ski touring, you don’t follow any tracks and there is no marking or any grooming. The possibilities to create tracks are set by the terrain. All you have to do is to keep an eye on the avalanche situation.
Professional ski and mountain guides guarantee the necessary safety in the ski touring regions of Cross Country Ski Holidays, thus you can experience this fascination at first hand. In that way, gliding through the wintry mountain landscapes is a delight and great fun.
