Introduction to Ski Touring

If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to enjoy the snow beyond the boundaries of the ski area, or gazed longingly at snow-clad pristine peaks and wished you could ski them, touring can allow you to realise those previously out-of-reach dreams.

If you’re already a competent on-piste skier and have some experience skiing off the groomed slopes then you’re well on the way to becoming a ski-tourer. Add a few simple skills like skinning, making ascent turns and using some touring-specific equipment and you’ll be ready start exploring.

Elements Guiding can introduce you to all of the techniques and equipment required to start touring and in no time at all you’ll be leaving the busy slopes behind and journeying into the mountains.

Whether it’s a one-off introduction day or a week’s progression course, whatever your time frame we’ll help you enhance your skills and gain confidence in your ski-touring ability.
