Ski touring in Salzburg
Backcountry & freeride skiing in Zell am See – Kaprun
The sport of ski touring is undergoing the biggest boom of any sport in Austria. Countless winter sports fans now dream of returning to the earliest days of winter sports, of using the power of their own muscles and skis wrapped in skins to make their way through virgin alpine landscapes. Well, here in your chosen holiday destination of Zell am See – Kaprun, you can now make this dream come true. A broad network of touring routes and a full range of difficulty provides the perfect foundation. That said, always be sure to obey the rules – and that includes some of Mother Nature’s own. In contrast to skiing on the pistes, there are many more safety considerations you have to pay attention to. And we would highly recommend engaging the services of an experienced touring guide. All the equipment you need – including skis, boots, skins, poles and avalanche transponders, etc. – is available for rent, or even purchase, at numerous sporting goods stores. For your very first attempts, you might want to try using the fringes of the pistes. Please make sure, however, that you don’t cross in the path of the other skiers.
