Learn how to use the security equipment, to read and understand the landscaping, the snow, a map…The guides practising the ski touring are often addict. Sharing their experiences is the heart of their job.
The level of ski can vary of course according to the outing, but generally, it is higlhy recommended to have experienced the off piste skiing and be able to go down in any type of snow.
