Ski mountaineering

Get away from the noise, free your mind.

Far from the ski slopes, in the silence of the mountains, there is a world made of panoramas, sensations, colors, and reflections, which gives you unique and unrepeatable new emotions. An infinite world in which it is worthwhile to enter and in which you will always wish to return.

Why participate

  1. Because if you are tired of experiencing the queues and the hubbub of ski destinations, ski mountaineering is the most natural way to spend the winter days.
  2. Because it is good for the heart, it helps to reflect and always gives unique emotions.
  3. Because there is more taste to “toil” if you think about what you will live, as soon as you have reached the top with your skis.
  4. Because ski mountaineering gives you the opportunity to enjoy every single moment of your day: morning coffee, tea on the top with a splendid panorama and every single curve of the slope that separates you from the inevitable fresh beer, which you will taste looking back to the lines that you have just drawn.

How can I be updated on the activities you propose?2021-01-11T10:00:37+00:00

The best way is to follow our Facebook page, you’ll find it at the bottom of the pages of our site, alternatively, you can send us a request to enter you in the Xadventure whatsapp group.

How should I dress for the first experience?2019-05-02T16:01:31+00:00

In ski mountaineering, you go up with seal skins and therefore you need to be able to sweat, breathe and protect yourself in layers. Winter trekking trousers or shell trousers, technical t-shirt and spare shirt are useful. For the high part a very technical sleeveless vest and a breathable fleece or sweater are very valid. Then unpadded windproof jacket. Light and heavy gloves, lighter band to climb and heavy cap to descend. Better still if you have the helmet and the mask.

What should I put in my backpack for my first experiences?2019-05-02T15:59:32+00:00

Water at least ½ liter, some snacks for day trips and course experiences or evening trips While for longer trips we will give you specific information based on the type of excursion.

How can I find suitable skis?2019-05-02T15:58:26+00:00

Don’t be in a hurry to buy the definitive material, there are numerous channels to find excellent equipment without spending an exaggeration

What skiing capacity is required?2020-04-16T07:56:59+00:00

It is good to know how to ski easily on at least red runs, however you can always take part in off-piste days first, you can find them on the page freeride.
