Ski touring

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.

Basic and practical material

For climb, we use "skins of seals" (now synthetic) to prevent the retreat of the skis.
Ski touring skis are versatile alpine skis with a lighter structure.
the bindings make it possible to release the heel for the ascent, it locks for the descent like in alpine skiing.
The lightweight shoes have 2 ski / walking positions with a rear flex for walking and a blocking for the descent.
The bindings incorporate wedges that elevate the heel on steeper slopes.
      

Additional material

- Orientation material: compass, altimeter and GPS with cartography.
- The indispensable triptych DVA-shovel-probe per person.
-A medical kit, a survival blanket.
-To hydrate and eat.
    

The ski touring is learned and requires:
-An economy of effort to climb and as downhill.
-A keen sense of the ground to manage a route up regular laces.
-A knowledge of the mountain and evaluation of the consistency of the snowpack.

Ski touring is experiencing a new boom as a hobby for more ecological.
