Activity description

Ski touring is an activity that dates back several hundreds of years. Inuit would attach seal skin under their skis to facilitate their movement on snow. A similar technique is used today however, the seal skins used now are synthetic.

Ski touring albeit physically exerting, has the advantage of being practiced in the majestic setting of the mountains. Nevertheless you must remember to practice under the guidance of an expert, who can teach you everything you’d need to know.

Have you previously practiced cross-country skiing (or are comfortable doing backcountry) and want to discover the peaks in the Ariege? Your dreams of exploring the fresh white snow and wild greenery can now come true, as Haute Ariege offers many routes to sate your exploration curiosity!

Turn the daunting into the attainable!
