The snow crunches under your skis, all around you there is nothing but clear winter air and a snow-covered landscape: the ascent is done step by step, at your own pace with plenty of time for yourself and to enjoy nature - and the reward for your sweat and effort is a stunning view at the summit, a rest in a cosy hut and a wonderful descent down snow-covered slopes in unspoilt nature. There is an almost sensual fascination that emanates from a ski tour - an experience in complete harmony with nature.
