Event details

What is ski touring?

Whether you call it ski touring, backcountry ski, alpine touring or ski mountaineering (skimo), this discipline is everything an outdoor enthusiast could wish for. A mix of trail running/walking, alpine skiing and powder skiing, the sport involves climbing snow-covered mountains on skis.

Accessible and family-friendly, the sport is very easy to practice recreationally, but also as a competitive discipline.
