The best thing about booking with us is that we are unbiased. We don’t have exclusive contracts with selected resorts, operators or providers, but rather have them all to make sure you get exactly the holiday you are dreaming of. No compromises, no sad faces - as we offer the widest collection of alternatives for ski touring holidays.
A classic trip with a contemporary twist. Our ski tours aren’t operated in the traditional sense, where hiking upward is often more important than skiing downward. Instead, our ski touring trips use “old world” hike-to-ride-style for hunting untouched powder. The goal isn’t mounting peaks, it’s conquering verticals. Our ski tours involve short hikes using skins, snowshoes or split boards to reach fresh powder and amazing views. These eco-friendly tours are also budget-friendly, come in a variety of options and are found all over the world. Ski touring is the ultimate way to find hidden winter gems.
Our Head of Sales travel is a true board rider. From starting out skating as a kid back home in the UK, to snowboarding in the European Alps and Canada, to chasing waves all across the globe, Mister Jenner has done it all. Now spending his time flipping between the mountains and the ocean, Martin is your go-to guy for Snow Travel and Maldives Surf Trips.
The snow has captured our hearts for years. Most of our staff have spent extensive time living, traveling and hunting snow across the globe and we know the best operators and destinations to suit your budget and skill level. With us, it’s always personal. We cater to your needs and come up with the best alternatives that suit you.
We offer best price guarantee - always and forever! We figured out all the cost traps, so you don’t have to. There are many. But through our extensive network and long-lasting relationships, we know how to avoid them and save you hard-earned cash on unnecessary costs.
We offer safe, fast and reliable payment and booking options. But what makes LUEX stand out is that you are talking to real people! Our dedicated sales agent not only walks you through the process step-by-step but will assist you with everything you need along the way. Jetting off to your dream destination has never been easier!
At LUEX, you get to talk to real people with real input! All of our sales agents are experienced skiers and riders, and understand what it’s like to book your first (or second or third) snow trip. No scripted messages, no robot typing – just real-time assistance and a human touch.

Ski touring is exhilarating and satisfying
If you want to move forward with your skiing, you can do it by taking a few steps backward! Ski touring is a unique and classic way of skiing. Together with the tremendous improvements with equipment and techniques, such as fat skis and split boards, ski touring nowadays is a fresh and unique experience. When you hike up a mountain, reaching remote peaks and endless untouched powder, you’ll feel the exhilaration that comes with the hard physical work - something that heli skiing and cat skiing can’t offer.
A seamless experience with new technology for ski and snowboard
With the enormous evolution of ski and snowboard technology, ski touring has become easier and more popular than ever. New equipment has facilitated a fresh way to ski touring, which makes it more accessible for skiers and snowboarders than ever before. Fat skis with touring bindings allow skiers to make hikes that bring a lot of fun riding down the mountain as well. Lightweight snow-shoes and split-boards are options for snowboarders to make ski touring a seamless and limitless experience. With new equipment comes new possibilities; you can ski or snowboard to amazing locations, then snap into your bindings and freeride over virgin powder.
An incredible alternative to heliski
In comparison to heli skiing or snowcat skiing, ski touring is eco-friendly. After all, the only machine you’ll use to get to the peak is your body. The satisfaction from bombing down backcountry slopes, after such physical exertion, is immense. At the end of the day, you’ll relax and rejuvenate from a hard day’s work and be proud of your physical accomplishment. Finally, compared to resort skiing, ski touring offers access to an untapped winter playground. You can ski or ride endless terrain of untracked fresh powder without the skiing traffic found at a resort.

Ski tours are available for practically every type of traveler and for every skiing or riding ability. From beginners to advanced skiers and snowboarders, LUEX can help you find the ski touring trip that is perfect for your ability level.
