Event tip | Ski Touring Summit

Online event with a variety of presentations

by Lukas Ruetz • 11/09/2020
The first online ski touring summit full of information, tips and tricks for ski touring will take place in November. Host Frank Allgäuer has brought together a number of well-known faces from the scene, conducted interviews, recorded talks and extracted the best to offer a five-day online event from November 23 - 27.

The fall event 2020 - no more total cancellation

Autumn is usually the hot season when it comes to further training and meeting places for freeriders, ski tourers and the snow-loving winter sports community in general. This year, unfortunately, almost everything is canceled due to Corona.

Frank Allgäuer is an enthusiastic ski tourer from Lake Constance as well as a technically experienced programmer and had the idea for a ski touring online congress. After months of preparation and countless online meetings & interviews, the Ski Touring Summit was born.

In several sessions, various topics from fitness, planning and nature conservation to equipment, dangers and technology will be explained by recognized ski touring experts. The summit takes place from 23 - 27 November with a time slot for each session.
