Ski and snowboard tours
Using climbing skins, experiencing the wintry mountains under your own power - this is how skiing began - long before our mountains were made accessible by lifts. In recent years this original form of getting about has experienced an unforeseen boom in our mountains. We want to show that ski mountaineering, despite becoming a mass movement, can still be practised in a very environmentally friendly way if a few rules are followed. In our local ski tour projects we are working with our partners to try to delineate conservation areas for the most important protected sites and species and to develop measures to improve the availability of ski tours.
