Ski tours

In January and March, we offer a ski touring week/weekend for beginners and advanced skiers.

Our guides show you the basics (avalanche transceiver search, weather and avalanche report, terrain selection…) and climb the most beautiful mountains in the Ötztal valley with you. A few powder or firn runs are also included.

  • Ski touring equipment Skis, skins, boots, poles, crampons

Are you confident on the slopes and even have a bit of experience off-piste? You want to get away from the crowds and enjoy the mountains on a ski tour? Or do you already have experience on touring skis, but don’t yet feel 100% confident in your ascent technique?
