I hope you’re ready to make this an annual trip, because multi day touring is not something you only do once. Skiing is quite simply the best way to travel through the mountains, with fun descents, ever changing scenery and sun bathing with a beer in hand!

The Alps are home to the biggest network of mountain refuges anywhere in the world, all with bags of character, as well as satisfying food and drink. These facilitate journeys through the mountains, with relatively small packs on our backs and plenty of comfort.

In the Alps the refuges normally open in March and the season runs until mid May. Having said that some refuges are open right through the winter, so if you’d like to tour outside of these months, contact me for a suggestion.
