    Hi ski lovers!

    I’ll be living in my van for two weeks in the alps and are looking for small villages and places where you could do only ski touring without lifts. Do anyone have any tips on places to go for ski touring and awesome lines?

    Kind regards,
    Jesper

    Hello Jasper, maybe an idea to consider - mountain passes that are open also in winter, so you can start hiking from relatively high altitude. Some ideas: pass between Bormio-Livigno, Brenner above Innsbruck.
    Apart from that I have just discovered beautiful place Sella Nevea, there is a ski resort but it can also serve as a touring base. Good luck in your winter quest.

    Hi Jesper,

    I suggest you follow the forecast here and travel to where the snow is best. I can help you in most countries with ski tour friendly spots, but there's too many to mention so send me a dm because I'm not on the English forum that much. I can tell you that France and Italy are more friendly for campervan and 'stealthy camping. Switzerland has fines, and Austria too can be quite unfriendly to ski bums.
    Good mountain sense is knowing how to avoid situations that require expert mountain sense.
