Program 4 days
Meeting point at 09:00 am at the alpine school Mountain Sports. Greeting and material check, followed by the transfer to the Almhof Roswitha in Hochschwendberg. As soon as we have checked in, we head off to the new Möslbahn, (located directly behind the hotel), and go up to the ski resort in Mayrhofen. On our first day we will work on our skiing technique on the slope and start with the basic training for avalanche victim search. Once we are used to the equipment, the mountain guide will introduce you to the off piste skiing technique. Later on, we will focus on the avalanche transceiver device and learn about avalanche awareness with our safety equipment.
Day 2 - 4:
Day tours adjusted to your skills – ascending techniques and tracking systems. In the next few days we will practise our newly acquired knowledge and skills off piste. Depending on the level we have reached, we will try several ascents and descents to refine the ski ascending and off piste skiing. The highlight will be to reach an easy ski touring summit. The course ends on Sunday approx. at 16:00 h.
