Ski touring has grown in popularity over the past 10 years. Once strictly the preserve of the winter mountaineer, ski touring has become a popular recreational activity. However, ski touring is not mainstream and never should be. Touring is a serious mountain activity that has to be approached step by step and under the guidance of IFMGA guides.
