Description

An avalanche safety training is a must for all freeriders, backcountry skiers or mountaineers venturing into avalanche-prone terrain. I invite you to join me on this 1-day avalanche safety workshop in Kanin-Sella Nevea to get the knowledge and techniques you need for a safe experience in the mountains.

The Kanin-Sella Nevea ski resort is very close to the small town of Bovec. It is one of the snowiest regions in Europe, about an hour away from Ljubljana, the capital of the country.

An avalanche safety course is the basis for any adventure in the back country. It is a great way to increase your safety, freedom and enjoyment in the mountains. The most important thing to learn when you find yourself in avalanche terrain is snow and terrain recognition.

We’ll dedicate the first part of the course to the following theoretical content:

  • Planning a ski trip
  • Snow conditions
  • Necessary equipment
  • Terrain reading
  • Safety protocols

The rest of the day will take place outdoors and you will put what you have learned in practice. We will do snow evaluation and then we will search using transceivers, shovel and probe. This training is a grea

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to improve your safety in the backcountry. Just send me a request if you want to join me on this avalanche training and book your place! Check out my profile page to find great guided ski touring or freeriding trips.

About the guide

guide profile img

I am a UIAGM mountain guide, ski instructor and sports teacher and the current president of the Slovenian Mountain Guide Association.

I am still the only guide who can make a living working exclusively in Slovenia. I climb Triglav more than 25 times per year, which means I have climbed the most famous peak in my country over 200 times.

If you want to climb or ski in Slovenian mountains I am the right choice. I guide via ferrata, rock climbing, snow climbing, ice climbing, hikes, heliski, freeride skiing and ski touring.

Slovenia has good options for all of these activities, so you are welcome to take a look at my trips and find something for yourself. If you don't find anything let me know and I will see if I can help you!

I speak English. Ich sprache auch ein bischen Deutsch. Parla anche un pocho Italiano e abla tambien un po Espanol.

If I am not available to guide you, one of the super experienced guides in my team - Rok, Peter, Grega or Igor - will be your guide.
