This program requires everyone to have Randonee equipment and climbing skins. If you are a Telemarker and have had lots of experience ski mountaineering using Telemark gear, then that is fine too. But you all have to bring your own equipment which you are familiar with and have had experience using in out of bounds conditions. Please make sure all your equipment especially boots and bindings are in excellent working conditions. We do not under any circumstances offer equipment rental for this trip.
All transportation is done by vehicles which will shuttle you from your apartments to various start points high on the mountain passes.
This is a trip designed to take advantage of the exceptional deep powder skiing afforded to individuals during the late winter and early spring months. This is because at that time the snow is quite stable and little chance of avalance. This program is for people who have had previous experience in Randonee or Telemark skiing. The days spent are quite vigorous engaged both in uphill travel on skis, as well as downhill runs. So we expect our clients to be quite fit and capable of handling varied snow conditions that one will inevitably encounter on such trips.
About 70% to 80% of the downhill skiing is done in powder, sometimes quite deep. The average depth of powder is between 80 cm to 150 cm. One and half meters of snow is quite deep; very enjoyable and fun, but it does require previous knowledge of skiing this type of snow on Randonee or Telemark equipment.
All the overnight accommodations are in very comfortable Villa-Apartment facilities with all the modern amenities. We want to make sure you are well rested and comfortable so that you can fully take advantage of every day. You will be spending between 3 to 4 hours of pure downhill skiing. The amount of time spent climbing will depend on the speed and strength of the group. But these will be challenging days spent at pretty high altitudes of between 2500 to about 4100 meters.
