Hailed as 'touring without tears', the ski safari opens up the world of backcountry. Here are a few of Europe's finest, chosen by four of the best British Mountain Guides.
The Ski Safari is a great way for off piste skiers to enjoy the journeying aspect of touring, without being committed to skinning uphill and earning every turn. In this article, I got some colleagues from the British Mountain Guides to suggest their favourite safaris. I kicked the game off with a piece about the fantastic Silvretta Alps - and a safari to join all the lifts (and great off piste potential) of the Paznaun valley around Ischgl and Galtur.
