Silvretta Alps Traverse Ski Tour
Start: Saturday, March 16, 2013
Ski touring in the Silvretta Alps is perfect for the intermediate ski tourer. The Silvretta Alps consist of seventy 3,000m peaks along the Austrian/Swiss border, including the highest peak in the region, the famous Piz Buin. On this ski tour you will have the chance to bag a number of peaks including the Piz Buin if conditions are right. The area is surrounded by glaciers, giving the area its alternative name - the Blue Silvretta. The huts are amongst the best in the Alps - excellent food, hot showers and plenty of beer. The tour starts and finishes in Galtür in Austria. The stunning glacial terrain is ideal for ski tourers with a penchant for 'peak bagging' as there are so many to go at. Huts open in mid-February so this is a great early season ski tour.
