Ski Tour Planning

Here you can find all important information about planning a ski tour in Savognin Bivio.

Maps

Prepare thoroughly for your ski tour. We recommend the following maps as resources:

  • Bivio ski touring map 1:50,000
  • Julier Pass ski touring map 1:50,000

All of the maps are available from the Savognin Tourism office and the Bivio info point.

Route planning

Use the information from the avalanche bulletin and the weather forecast to plan your tour well. If you keep your eyes open in the backcountry and are able to refrain from taking on a tempting but risky slope when necessary, you will put yourself and others in less danger. Being considerate of flora and fauna is also part of the rules of conduct for backcountry skiers. Avalanche knowledge and familiarity with appropriate behaviour in high-Alpine areas are required for planning the right route.

Equipment

Apart from well-maintained touring gear, you also need to take along special avalanche equipment. An avalanche shovel, avalanche transceiver device, avalanche probe or a ski-pole probe should always be included as standard gear.
