The team behind Salomon Freeski TV sent two dudes who don't really tour on a touring trip. The dudes, Mike Douglas and Alexi Godbout, made it look like touring is a piece of cake and that you ought to try it sometime. Here we'll allow Mike Douglas to take the microphone: "[Ski touring] is part of the huge mosaic that is skiing. I want to experience skiing in every kind and this is a unique, fun way to get out to see the mountain and chase some powder ultimately."
If you want to dig deeper into the story behind this episode, check out the standalone site Salomon Freeski TV created about the trip.
For Mike Douglas and Alexis Godbout, a ski touring trip through Switzerland's Urner Alps was about much more than simply exploring a beautiful mountain range on skis. It was a chance to push themselves and expand their definition of what it means to be a freeskier.
