What's Not Included
Food and drinks
Everything not specified in the paragraph “What is included”
You don't have to have previous ski-touring experience, as you will be accompanied at all times by a certified mountain guide who can teach you the required skills. The trip is open to both skiers and snowboarders (with a splitboard). To get the most out of this trip, you should be able to ski down a red piste easily and have some off-piste experience. The average elevation gain is 500m to 1000m per day, hence you need to be moderately fit. Your guide will adapt the itinerary according to the level and preferences of the group and conditions.
Ski-touring gear rental
You can rent basic ski-touring equipment (skis, boots, poles) and avalanche rescue equipment (beacon, probe and shovel) for this trip. Just let us know what you need (specific gear or the full set) and your guide will provide you with everything. You can choose between renting each item individually or renting a set of ski-touring and/or avalanche rescue equipment. It is mandatory for everyone to have a full avalanche kit with them at all times when ski-touring.
Mapo Tapo selects locations and mountain guides with the utmost care. We can for any inaccuracies, however, accept no liability. Ski-touring is a risky sport that takes place in nature. Ultimately, you are fully responsible for the choices you make. Mapo Tapo recommends that anyone who does not have sufficient knowledge to go outdoors accompanied by a certified mountain guide.
