Ski Touring

Ski touring is the form of alpine skiing closest to nature and no lifts are used offering you ultimate freedom.
You climb up the mountain using “skins” then ski back down, off-piste most of the time.

This sport takes you through medium or high mountain areas on a discovery of the most stunning snow-covered scenery of the region. Very good knowledge of the terrain, snow, glacier risks where applicable, mountain weather conditions and routes is necessary to ensure your safety. If you’re novices, make sure you find out about the weather and snow conditions from the relevant services and check with mountain professionals, ski patrollers and high mountain guides before you leave.

Choose a route suited to your physical condition, your technical ability and the snow conditions. Don’t attempt a difficult route for your first time out.
Led by mountain guides, you’ll find some fantastic off-piste routes in the Villars – Gryon area. Learn the technique of this sport in Les Diablerets with an easy trip like “La Tête du Meilleret”.
