What is ski touring in the French Alps? 

Ski touring means going up  the hill without ski lifts  and away from crowded ski resorts, using “skins” under your skis to reach the top of the mountain. Usually ski tourers starts their day early in order to benefit from best snow conditions. 
A ski touring in the French Alps is the opportunity to get closer to nature, experience the silence of the mountains and the chance to meet wildlife on your way up. You will learn to adapt your route to the snow conditons and weather as well as  your own physical abilities.
Second part of the ski tour is skiing down untouched snow slopes. It is all about adapting your ski technique to the snow conditions and remaining humble before nature.
