Description of Ski Touring

Ski touring is a rewarding combination of hiking and skiing and a next level activity for winter. The alpine touring skis enable you to walk on soft snow, where we would normally struggle to walk with regular shoes and gives you the opportunity to slide in your step, thus moving faster and easier than on foot. Ski touring opens up new options to traverse snowy terrains, which would otherwise be inaccessible, and allows you to experience the pure and wild slopes of the snow-clad Alps.

Skiing on fresh snow is considered one of the best outdoor experiences and is highly addictive, making it a perfect activity for adrenaline junkies. Snow conditions are very specific and can change daily, that is why an experienced specialized guide will decide which tour will be the safest and most enjoyable for your previous knowledge and experience.

First, we will drive to the mountains, check the equipment and have a safety briefing which will include the route planned for the day. There will be roughly a minimum of 3 hours walking, including breaks, up to the top. During the ascent, the guide will also demonstrate tests of hardness and stability of the snow, teach you about avalanche safety and all in all, make sure you get familiar with the mountain and snow conditions. After reaching the top, there will be another equipment check and off you go!

Skiing down the mountain will last approximately an hour and it will be the most rewarding part of the tour, as you will feel the exhilarating lightness of moving across the untouched slopes of these giants resting in the winter.

The tour will be wisely chosen by an experienced guide, according to the weather, snow conditions and level of experience of participants. You can be a beginner in tour skiing but have to be comfortable skiing on red piste and be able to hike for 4 hours.

We went on a ski tour with the family before, but this experience was really special. We had lots of fun on the trails the guide showed us and we even learned a lot about avalanche safety. Slovenian mountains are so beautiful, we are definitely coming back next year.
