A ski-tour is a type of outdoor activity, which is the passage of routes on special skis over rough terrain with ascents and descents. This is a combination of a mountain and a regular hiking ski trip. A ski tour allows you to ski on slopes that cannot be reached by lift. The entire route is covered by skiing and walking.
Skis for such a trip have a special mechanism – a camus, which prevents slipping of the foot and special fastenings that prevent the heel from coming off the ski when climbing uphill.
