Ski touring is the best way to get away from the ski lifts and go skiing in the mountain.Unlike the off-piste practiced essentially crossing from a track, the field of action is incomparably vast.The extent of the possible routes is limited only by the physical condition of the people and the snow-weather conditions.
This is the best way to make a first trace on virgin slopes in a natural environment.
