Skitouring, ski mountaineering or skialpinism is hiking on skis. It's running in the mountains, like hiking in summer. Instead of a mountain shoes, we take ski boots and we need special bindings and skis with climbing skins. The goal is usually to go skiing to the selected peak and then go down, if possible in powder or other, ski-friendly art of snow.
