Ski touring and freeride planning
Prepare for your tour with a topographic map showing information about slope inclination, information from the avalanche bulletin and weather forecast. Those who can live without a tricky slope at times are less likely to put themselves and others in danger. It is one of the duties of every tour - or off-piste skier to look out for fauna and flora and respect wildlife zoning. If possible, do not go on tours alone.

Recognise avalanche danger.
Avalanches pose a major risk when touring off the marked slopes. Tourers should be able to identify the dangers and assess them correctly. Find out in advance about weather and snow conditions in the area.
