Ski Mountaineering: reaching the snow covered higher peaks
These trips involve both skiing and mountain climbing sometimes up slopes that can get steeper than 35°. Experienced and certified ski mountain guides will lead small groups of skiers into the steep ground that has a deep snow cover in challenging alpine terrain. Skiers must be in good physical condition and will be expected to master alpine skiing techniques which includes ascending and descending off-piste terrain with possibly difficult snow conditions. Skiers will be asked to fill out a questionnaire highlighting ski mountaineering experience.
