Advanced Level Ski Tours

Warning!

 Never ski in avalanche terrain without proper training and equipment.

 Always check the avalanche conditions before starting your tour!

These tours are for skiers who have extensive cross country skiing experience. Skiers should be able to control their speed and direction at all times without difficulty. If your skills need polishing it is recommended that you take an advanced lesson first. Telemark turning is recommended, but not mandatory. Skiers can traverse and kick turn if they have good endurance.

These tours are on hilly to steep terrain. They cover at least three miles, but can go as far as your endurance will allow. Generally they last for four and half  to six hours with a half hour lunch and a couple of shorter breaks are recommended.
