Which skis & ski boots are best for ski touring?
This question is not easy to answer. The choice of ski and ski boot depends on the one hand on the skier’s ability and on the other hand on the condition and length of the ski tour. A middle ground is formed here by downhill-oriented touring ski boots and a touring ski with a center width of about 90mm and a length slightly shorter than body height. You are also well advised to use a lightweight binding.
What is the length of an average ski tour?
The length of a ski tour ranges roughly between 4 and 6 kilometers and 800 to 1,200 meters in altitude. First ski tours should at best not be longer than 3 kilometers and 500 meters in altitude, otherwise the fun could quickly be lost.
