The sessions

Ski touring is a wholly unique way to ski, by combining different equipment and a more physical excursion, you can ski further away and in more secluded areas. The breathtaking silence of the landscapes will enchant you as you discover the hidden gems of the surrounding mountain ranges. Using sealskins and hinged shoes you climb the mountain at your own pace and when you reach the top you get to speed back down.
Whether you are an experienced ski tourer or this is your first time, you will improve under the careful instruction of our highly trained instructors.
Times: 9:30 – 13:00 / 13:30 – 17:00 / 9:30 – 16:30.

Useful information

Do you need to be very sporty to try ski touring?

You need to be in good shape and be an upper-intermediate / advanced level skier (Class III: see our levels).
If you like skiing, the physical effort of hiking and want to discover superb landscapes, then ski touring is perfect for you!
You will be climbing at high altitudes so try to book your ski touring session two or three days after your arrival to allow your body to adapt. Letting your body get used to the different oxygen levels is recommended so that you can fully appreciate this activity.
We mainly organise outings for adults; teenagers can take part depending on their age and level but the instructor will need to agree.

What should I wear for ski touring?

As far as clothing is concerned, you can’t go wrong with the 3-layer system (long-sleeved thermal top, a fleece or a down gilet and a light but warm ski jacket (Gore-Tex is always preferable).
The uphill climb is often intense and you will need to be able to shed layers to keep cool as you go up, then cover up again for the ride back down. Also don’t forget to bring water, snacks, sun cream and sunglasses!
ESI Arc Aventures provides the essential safety pack for each participant: an avalanche transceiver and a rucksack containing a shovel and a probe. You can add your personal belongings to the rucksack if necessary.
It is always a good idea to book your equipment in advance (touring skis, boots, poles and seal-skins) you can get a good deal when you go to our partner shop: Intersport Villards Village, Arc 1800.

Do I need a lift pass for ski touring?

Some ski touring routes will require a lift pass to get away from the main resort a little faster and to be able to access the wild areas more easily.
We will let you know when you book if you will need one as it will depend on the route the instructor is panning to take. 

How do I book my ski touring?

We will offer you tailor-made sessions according to your level and your wishes. Call us to talk about it!
You can reach us 7 days a week by telephone: +33 (0)4 79 07 60 02 from 9 am to 6 pm or pop in to see us when you arrive at our office in Arc 1800 – Les Tournavelles building – Les Villards.
