SKI TOURING

Ski Touring in the Villgratental Valley

Ski touring is for those who appreciate gaining altitude, in search of the perfect downhill run, under their own steam. Ski touring can get you into areas considered inaccessible to ordinary skiers and offers a completely different mountain experience. Call them the sounds of winter; the crisp crunch of that first step out on to snow… or the muffled swoosh of powder under your feet. The efforts of hiking up will be rewarded with stunning views of the snow-capped peaks. There is a variety of ski tours to suit all abilities and ambitions.

In the Villgratental Valley you can experience world class terrain with off-piste access by hiring a backcountry guide to show you the way and teach you how to travel safely in the backcountry. If you head out on your own among a group of like-minded, please be aware that backcountry activities involve a variable amount of manageable risk and that it is you, the individual backcountry skier, who is responsible for the management of that risk! Only through careful planning of every backcountry trip and knowing how to ride safely in the mountains can the danger be minimized. Your safety – and the safety of others – depends on it. Avalanche rescue techniques and equipment (avalanche transceiver, collapsed probe, and shovel) and a mobile phone are all standard requirements. Carrying an avalanche airbag system, which helps you stay on top of the snow in the event of an avalanche, is strongly recommended. Experienced mountain guides will introduce you to the secrets of assessing potential avalanche conditions and checking snowpack; activities even include practically oriented tests with transceivers, shovels and probes.
