Conditionnel passé

Bonjour à tous, 

I've come access this sentence somewhere using "être on train de" in Conditionnel passé tense:

I would have been skying in the Alps if I hadn’t broken my leg.

Je serais en train de skier dans les Alpes si je ne m’étais pas cassé la

jambe.

I think we must use avoir (in Conditionnel présent) + être (in past participle) as follow:

J'aurais été en train de skier....

Could you explain which one is correct?

Merci beaucoup d'avance.

I agree with you.

J'aurais été en train de skier dans les Alpes si je ne m'étais cassé la jambe. -- I would have been skiing in the Alps (right now), if I hadn't broken my leg.
