THE 'INITIATION' - First Time Hike/Ski Tour
- Takes place in the morning
- 3 hour duration (approx)
- Difficulty Level: 1/5 
This exquisite ski tour/hike leads you on the western slope of the resort where you will discover new scenery and landscapes. Far away from the slopes you will cross forests, visit small valleys, be inspired by intense peaks and descend on untouched slopes.

With this ESF experience you are in good hands and will learn added techniques. The main objective is your pleasure.

Your questions answered
Do the ESF guide you and do you need to be experienced in ski touring?
Yes. We will take you to places of beauty and guide you around in the 3 hours. You do not have to be an expert skier, however, you need to be a competent and confident skier.
