Insider tips

Even though this ski touring camp is expressly aimed at beginners to this sport, the camp does not replace a ski course, which means that you must at least be able to safely master more difficult alpine slopes and in any case master stem turns in deep snow.

In addition, you need sufficient basic fitness for the ascents of the guided ski tour. These range depending on the walking speed of the group between 4 and 5 hours (800 - 1,000 meters altitude). The enjoyment descents in the open terrain are moderate.
