  • Level: classic tours requiring a very good control of your skis when going down,  whatever the quality of snow may be (you can turn with skis parallel in deep powder snow), or when going up (half turns). You like to ski "off-piste", and you have already practised several ascents in Backcountry skiing.
  •  
  • Your stamina for the programmes in Ortler, Oëtztal or Silvretta : You practise twice a week either ski touring, running, biking or swimming. During the two months before this tour, you must either run 30 minutes 3 times a week, bike 3 hours 2 times a week, or practise 6 hours of ski touring each week-end. In the same time, you will practise exercices in a gymnasium to get strong muscles in your legs (quadriceps and calfs mainly). Like this, you will be perfectly prepared for both ascents and descents, and you will appreciate the pleasure of ski touring on altitude glaciers.

Glaciers broad as estuaries, vertical walls and seracs of the Mischabels, undulating slopes of Valais highlands, this tour is one of the most beautiful of Europe. The ascents are long, but the tour has been designed to unweight your bagpacks (two nights at Britannia hut and two nights at Täsch hut), and to get acclimatized to the height gradually.
