Ski Touring – the ultimate winter adventure

Ski touring offers the ultimate winter adventure, combining freedom, challenge, and a deep connection with nature. Unlike traditional skiing, ski touring allows you to explore untouched snow without the constraints of marked trails or ski lifts. You can embark on anything from a one-hour adventure to a multi-day expedition. The beauty of ski touring lies in its versatility and the sense of peace it brings.

The Magic of Ski Touring

Ski touring lets you experience the mountains in their most serene state. The silence, the varied snow conditions, and the breathtaking landscapes create a unique and exhilarating experience. The sense of freedom and solitude, combined with the physical challenge, makes ski touring truly special. Each ascent rewards you with stunning views and a profound sense of accomplishment.

Key Tips for a Successful Ski Tour

  • Research and Plan: Know your route, check the weather, and plan accordingly. Proper preparation ensures a safe and enjoyable trip.
  • Right Equipment: Use alpine-like touring skis with wide bases and sharp edges for better grip and control. Ensure your gear is suited for the specific conditions you'll encounter.
  • Clothing: Dress in layers with a preference for wool as a base and middle layer. Choose windproof clothing over waterproof for better ventilation. Lundhags’ Makke Pro collection offers a perfect blend of protection and breathability.
  • Start Small: Begin with shorter trips to familiarize yourself with your equipment and build confidence.
  • Guided Tours: Joining a guided tour can be invaluable. Benefit from expert knowledge and ensure your safety.
  • Regular Breaks: Take frequent breaks to recharge and maintain energy levels.
  • Safety First: Always inform someone of your route and expected return. Carry essential items like a map, compass, GPS, mobile phone, sleeping pads, shovel, reinforcement garments, food, water, and a medical kit.
