The Minister-Delegate for Sports details the new measures coming into force for ski touring from Tuesday 15 December
Ski touring is authorised on the marked trails listed below, for up to a maximum of 6 people for adults (including if the activity is supervised by a professional) and in accordance with the curfew. Supervised activities for minors are not subject to this 6-person threshold (compliance with the health protocol provided by the supervisor).
It’s absolutely essential to follow basic security rules, to carry the right safety gear and know how to use it, as well as being aware of the weather forcecast and the current avalanche risk.
