Beginners should not participate in their first ski tour without
the assistance of a local mountain guide.
Additionally, experienced ski tourers who prefer to set off on their own should plan their tours well in any case and be flexible in adapting plans to changing weather conditions. Comprehensive info on prevailing local weather condi-tions and up-to-date information is available from the Avalanche warning service (Lawinenwarndienst).
Optimal starting point
No tourer should set out without emergency equipment
such as an avalanche transceiver, probe,
shovel as well as a first aid kit. Safety is paramount!
