Practice instead of grey theory

Avalanche course basic

Basic avalanche course in small groups

In addition to the secure piste, untracked deep snow slope attracts skiers/snowboarders and this is where risk management for avalanches and alpine hazards begins. Recognize potentially dangerous slopes and set the right action. With the right equipment and practical training you can avoid this extreme situation. Practice instead of grey theory is the order of the day!

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.
