“If you dream of leaving the behind the crowds and carving fresh tracks on virgin snow - then our beginner ski tour course if for you. This is for keen skiers with some off piste experience"
Now you can try your hand at ski touring this April, it is the perfect time of year to experience it. Try ski touring with Alpine Actions Resort Director Iain Macluskie. 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. It is one of the most fashionable aspects of skiing at the moment. Imagine gliding along or steadily climbing up pristine snow! It doesn’t have to extreme. The touring scene is full of health conscious adults and there is no age limit. There are several benefits, high calorie burning. That helps with the mountain lunches too. Access to the most beautiful skiing for the advanced skiers. The less experienced can walk up suitable terrain and easily ski back to the piste.
