Participants should have completed at least 1 multi-day ski tour or at least some day tours and be familiar with the technical aspects of ski touring. The ski mountaineering is long – average daily ascents of almost 1000 m (4 hours) – but is not technically demanding.
You will need to be a good intermediate off-piste skier capable of skiing 10-12 continuous turns off-piste. You can ski down most slopes but lack confidence on steeper pitches and in tricky conditions. Terrain in the Silvretta Alps is varied and most descents are on wide slopes with lots of room to maneuver.
If you are uncertain about your eligibility for this tour, you should call our office to discuss.
These tours differ from the beginner level tours in that ascents & descents will be more demanding – i.e. longer & steeper.
You therefore need to be fit enough to enjoy skiing for 5-7 hours each day at a reasonable pace. Maximum skinning: 3-4 hours per day.
There are lots of options for week-long tours and the exact chosen itinerary will depend on the conditions and the preferences/aspirations of the group. For a more advanced group we can include additional peaks including Piz Buin (3312 m) on day 3, the highest peak in the range, and Piz Fliana (3281 m) on day 6.

On the days when no peaks are included, you will be crossing some high cols and there are some excellent ski descents. This tour is the same as last season's tour. Another option is start and finish in Galtur.
