Ski touring, also known as backcountry skiing, combines elements of Nordic and alpine skiing and embraces such sub-disciplines as Telemark and randonnée. It´s a great way of exploring remote mountain areas and being in deep contact with nature. Instead of using ski lifts or other means of transportation, ski touring involves going uphill using skins, a piece of fabric attached to the base of skis to prevent them from sliding back when climbing up a slope. Before skiing downhill, skins are removed, the binding is adjusted and then you are ready to enjoy downhill in the flawless mountain terrain.  

A trip around the Giant Mountains 

Experience the unique winter beauty of the Czech mountains and discover the true freedom of movement offered by an alpine ski tour. Almost everyone will master it in a minute, and you will be able to set off with your friends for unusual and powerful experiences.

Being guided by our experienced instructor, you can be sure that you won´t get lost. Vice versa, he will show you the best routes, and mountain views that the Giant Mountains offer. It is up to you, whether or not you chose from a half-day or all-day trip. It's up to you whether you choose a private trip or a group trip.
