Although this trip is designed for those with no previous Nordic Skiing experience, you do need to be able to ski parallel turns on pisted Blue runs, you will also need a high level of fitness as this is a Nordic Ski Tour, essentially very gentle slopes and lots of undulating flat off-piste ski touring, meaning long distance skiing each day.
