Description

A ski tour like you have never experienced before, over a glacier and around amazing hot springs! 

After a thorough safety brief, we skin up, over a small glacier and up to the so-called Smile (you will understand when you see it!). Then we carve our turns down an amazing slope that leads us to a bubbling hot spring area. After some exploration, we skin back up to the Smile and swoosh back down to where we started.
