What makes a successful ski tour? That's right, it is the varied ascent through forests and over slopes, the beautiful panoramas and, of course, that indescribable feeling of happiness when your reach the summit. Take a deep breath... and enjoy it all – especially the spectacular descents through the wonderful powder snow.

Ski touring is in. Many people want to get a taste of this sport without the danger of avalanches, and indeed not everyone should go off-piste straight away. On-piste ski touring has therefore become extremely popular. To meet this demand and ensure the right conditions for both alpine skiers and ski tourers, our mountain railways have opened up routes and created great options for on-piste ski touring.
