Discover Ski Touring in the Untamed Beauty of Maira Valley

Are you ready to embark on a thrilling ski touring adventure in a pristine, unspoiled alpine valley? Outdoor Italy is proud to introduce the Ski Touring Camp in Maira Valley, an idyllic destination nestled in southwestern Piedmont. Maira Valley, known for its untouched landscapes and absence of ski lifts and mass tourism, presents an ideal playground for ski touring enthusiasts. Throughout this camp, you’ll acquire essential touring skills, including avalanche safety, and by the end of the week, you’ll be prepared for your very own touring adventures.

Tour Highlights:

  • Suitable for Intermediate to Advanced Skiers: This tour is tailored for skiers with intermediate to advanced skills, comfortable navigating black slopes and in good physical condition. Ski touring involves ascending the mountain on your own, making it more demanding than traditional alpine skiing. However, the experiences and rewards are immeasurable.
  • Daily Guided Touring Adventures: Each day, you’ll embark on new and exhilarating touring journeys led by our internationally certified guides. The tour includes an extensive teaching program seamlessly integrated into your daily excursions. Topics covered include basic ski touring techniques and equipment, an overview of safety gear, trip preparations, snow and weather analysis, and fundamental search and rescue principles.
  • Safety and Respect for the Mountains: Ski touring often takes you off the beaten path, and while more “safe” routes are emerging in the Alps, safety and a deep respect for the mountains are paramount. The knowledge and skills you acquire in this course serve as a foundational requirement to navigate the terrain confidently on touring skis.

After an adventurous day on the slopes, you’ll return to a warm and inviting hotel, where exquisite cuisine awaits. Our accommodation features cozy rooms with two to four beds, and the well-stocked bar provides the perfect place to unwind and share stories of the day’s excursions into the late hours.

You have the flexibility to book this camp for your private group or choose from our fixed-date camp options. Keep an eye on our Facebook Events for upcoming ski touring camp schedules, and prepare to experience the magic of Maira Valley while mastering the art of ski touring.
