Ski Touring in Chamonix

Chamonix ski touring

If you really want to explore the terrain, ski fresh tracks and get away from the crowds of skiers that flock to Chamonix every winter, then ski touring is for you. Ski touring relies on the ability to climb on skis or on a split board or on foot to reach your destination. With the right equipment and guidance, no peak or hidden valley is out of reach.

Chamonix is perfect for ski touring as the lift system provides easy access to the mountain wilderness. There are many well known ski touring routes that can be discovered using a guide book or hiring a guide.

Remember that if you attempt these touring routes without a guide you do need to have off-piste avalanche training and carry the right equipment including avalanche beacons as there is a real avalanche danger. 

For real ski touring enthusiasts, Chamonix is also the start of the famous Chamonix to Zermatt Haute route visit the Mountain Tracks website.

Chamonix Holidays recommends using one of the following guides: Evolution 2 or Dream Guides

Be sure to check the weather forecast before you go.
