I’m an alpine skier, wanting to tour in search of better downhill conditions and try something a bit different. I moved from the UK to Switzerland (Vaud) a year ago.
I’ve got some gear advice here, and am in the final stages of pulling the trigger.
What I need is an introduction to ski touring - the basics, the tricks, the safety.
Does anyone know of a day course in the area, or at the end of a reasonable commute from Lausanne.
I’ve seen a few week courses, but cannot really commit to that.
Failing that - any experiences to share of your first time skinning?
