FAQs

What ski equipment do I need for an avalanche course?

For an avalanche course you will need ski touring equipment or ski equipment - this will be arranged in advance depending on the day's planning. We are happy to advise you and together with your mountain guide you can hire suitable skis from one of our partner shops in the morning.

Do I get a discount if I bring my own equipment?

Of course, you are welcome to use your own equipment. This is even particularly good, because then you learn to use your own equipment. Unfortunately, we cannot offer a discount, as we generally provide the necessary safety equipment free of charge.

What should I bring?

Backpack, if available your own avalanche transceiver equipment (is included), skis and poles, helmet.

Do I need a lift ticket?

This depends on the planning of the mountain guide. A lift ticket does not need to be bought the day before.
