Have fun ski touring with the right ski touring guide
Ski touring is very trendy. Making your way to the snow-covered summit - away from all the slopes - is becoming more and more popular. Encountering a detour or dead ends can get annoying, and going the wrong way in the mountains can quickly become dangerous. That's why you need a good ski touring guide of the region. A ski touring guide, similar to a summer hiking guide, describes the best way to the summit. The difference is that a ski touring guide also lists the suitable descents and addresses winter hazards such as avalanches. A good ski touring guide will help you avoid avalanche-prone slopes.
How do I find the right tour in a ski touring guide?
Similar to a hiking guide or climbing guide, ski touring guides usually have a rating system that provides information about the duration, difficulty and danger level. They allow you to plan your tour in detail at home to prevent you from being overwhelmed and hopefully avoid unpleasant surprises. A ski touring guide will also tell you which tour is more suitable for downhill or uphill skiers.
In addition to ski touring guides, there are also snowshoeing guides that identify suitable routes. These aren't usually alpine routes and don't focus so much on the descent.
