5 Tipps for ski tour newbies

There are a few things you bear in mind, so that everything goes to plan on your first ski tour in Ischgl and you can fall head over heels in love with the sport: 

  1. A good plan is key! Especially for ski tourers: Choose your route before the ski tour. Which particularities await you? Which challenges might lie ahead? And how long is the tour going to take you? But most importantly: Did you choose your route based on your level of skill or are you overestimating yourself?
  2. Avalanche check ahead of every tour! Check the current avalanche report ahead of every tour. Especially, if there has been fresh snow on the days before. 
  3. Weather check ahead of every tour! Weather conditions can be very changeable in the mountains. Check the weather report – ahead of every tour. That’s how you’ll avoid unpleasant surprises.
  4. The early ski tourer leaves the marks! The earlier you head out on your ski tour, the grippier the snow is and the fewer kindred spirits will be out there with you! Especially in spring, it’s a good idea to start on your tour before 10 am. But be aware of the closing times of the slopes in the ski area.
  5. Enjoy! Once you have mapped out your route, checked the weather and avalanche reports, and have your equipment ready, it’s time to enjoy your ski tour to the fullest! Finally, you get to make the most of your day and completely relax and unwind. The ascent, the break at the summit and the descent through the powder snow.
