Ski mountaineering experience, good physical condition and health is essential and must be backed up by a health statement. Participants must be able to master techniques of alpine skiing in off piste terrain (ascent and descent). Ski mountaineering is a technical and more strenuous activity for experienced ski mountaineers who wish to climb higher peaks and viewpoints. Ski mountaineers climb and ski (if necessary in rope parties) in sometimes steep, deep snow-covered, glaciated and potentially dangerous alpine environment.
