Info. High Tauern mountains
The High Tauern mountains above the Austrian spa town of Bad Gastein is one of many regions around the world that attract brave ski-touring enthusiasts, like the three skiers crossing the ridge here. Ski touring is a sport for only the most skilled athletes, since it usually involves mountaineering – navigating unfamiliar mountain territory and climbing with equipment, all without removing your skis.
