Although touring often conjures up the image of ski-mountaineering in incredibly difficult terrain, a large part of the club’s touring activity requires a much lower level of competence.
Simple “off-piste” days or half days, perhaps a trip through the woods, where the piste is never far away for those who get tired, are all features when conditions are appropriate. Weather and snow permitting, glacier skiing usually occurs in the latter half of the skiing season. Tourers must be confident skiers on piste and off, with good intermediate skills or above.
In the late spring, the touring section organises a high mountain tour of one week duration. This will often involve several nights stay in mountain huts.
