SKI TOURING – SPLITBOARD

Try a new experience in the mountains.

Walking up hill may be tiring but the reward once you get to the top is all worth it. Especially if you can ski fantastic snow on the way down.

With our guides and instructors you will learn:

  • how to use your ski touring gear in most efficient way
  • up-hill and down-hill technique
  • plan a trip
  • to evaluate the snow and weather conditions
  • how to rescue people in case of avalanche

Skills required: Intermediate skier (red slopes with parallel skis)

Difficult: Intermediate

Period: December to the end of April

A splitboard is essentially a normal snowboard which splits into two halves. These halves become skis for travelling uphill, or touring. To enable the rider to walk uphill,‘skins’ are attached to the base of the skis to provide traction on the snow.

Once at the top of the slope, the rider removes the skins, attaches the two skis together and it transforms back into a snowboard, ready for a well-earned descent through untracked powder. Splitboarding gives you true freedom, enabling you to access untracked snow in the backcountry, and enjoy the serenity of the mountains away from the hustle and noise of commercial ski areas.

We can provide you the highest quality splitboards and teach you how to use them achieve your goals.
