During prolonged expeditions (2 to 5 hours) using the ski touring equipment, you will appear in seldom visited areas with greater opportunities for off-piste skiing. You might make only one run on this day, but the emotional component of these routes is so high that some of you won’t immediately be able to clearly answer the question: "Which is the most interesting one - climbing up, enjoying the serenity and unique landscapes or skiing down? While travelling you may feel the harmony of this day.

In the course of ascents and descents you will learn to understand the mountains better and "read the terrain” while interacting with our guides. You'll be taught how to plot the safest route of ascent and descent and study the avalanche safety.
