Ski touring

Ski touring

Cross-country skiing is a fun alternative to regular skiing. It allows you to go to more remote and untouched places and to find some calm in the mountains. If you wish to ractice this activity on our slopes, it is imperative that you follow the schedules very strictly. It is strictly prohibited to use the downhill ski slopes either during the day or at night outside the indicated hours, as machines prepare the slopes with the aid of cables, which are a great danger for everyone going up or down as well as for the personnel preparing the slopes.

There are eight rules we recommend you follow if you want to go cross-country skiing:

  • You do so at our own risk (not really a rule, but good to know…)
  • Use only the edge of the slope for ascend. Advance in single file and pay attention to other skiers
  • Be careful when you approach the top, in case of narrow passages or steep slopes. Do not cross if there is a lack of visibility
  • Never go on trails that are closed
  • Do not use the slopes while they are being prepared.  
  • Always pay attention to your surroundings in case of avalanches
  • Never take pets with you
  • Respect car parking conditions
