Learn ski touring
This physically demanding sport can be learned like all other sports. It requires knowledge of your equipment, of the environment in which you practice, and some tips to quickly find pleasure in doing the sport. Check the weather before leaving, carry a DVA, a shovel and a probe, as well as a means of alerting rescue, together with a map or GPS device to be on the safe side.
