The alpine mountain and fjord landscape in the Sunnmøre Alps provides the backdrop for unique skiing adventures. However, summit trips require good physical fitness and skiing skills.

You either use alpine touring skis (randonée skis) or telemark skis and skins. If you are a snowboarder, snow shoes or a splitboard is recommended. Touring on your own without a guide requires knowledge about avalanches, first aid and navigation.
If you are going to explore an area for the first time, it is recommended that you go with a guide who has local knowledge. An avalanche course and off-piste guide can be very useful if you intend to move around in areas outside the marked tracks.
