Ski touring in Chamonix with Mountain Adventure Guides

Ski touring – is it for me?

This week is designed for adventurous skiers with some off-piste experience wanting to get away from the busy pistes and more frequented off-piste runs. We love to ski so we choose tours offering the best descents on the day! Remember ski touring involves going up! Be prepared for one to two hours of climbing on skins, though some days will may have longer climbs. Throughout the week we will be teaching you the techniques involved for touring, including skinning techniques, avalanche awareness, use of transceivers, crevasse rescue as well as ski techniques and strategies for different snow conditions.
