Touring skis

If you enjoy the boundless freedom of the mountains, you may well be a ski touring fan. Touring skis are an essential piece of kit for this sort of tour. Nowadays, ski manufacturers offer a variety of models ensuring there is something for every passionate touring skier or anyone looking to try it out.

Keeping weight as low as possible is key with this type of model, as the lighter the skis, the easier the ascent. Materials like Paulownia or Balsa wood are therefore commonly used in ski construction. Waist widths vary from narrow, uphill-oriented skis to more freeride-driven broader widths. 

The new touring models open up limitless options on the mountain!

    Hintertux Glacier is the place to head to for everyone who prefers spending days on the slopes over beach days on fleek, when summer is already in full swing. The ski resort offers an all-round view of the Alps from just under 3,250 m and about 60 km of slopes.
