Alpine ski tours are among the ultimate disciplines of alpine winter sports. Glaciated high mountains, vast terrain, steep ridges and faces – these things make the hearts of all alpine ski mountaineers beat faster. Of course, you need a big skill set to move in a risk-optimized way when you are up in the alpine elevation.
